Yesterday afternoon I was feeling some flu-like symptoms so I left my sewing behind to lie down for awhile. After a nap I felt a little better and by the evening I felt good enough to head downstairs to catch up on my abandoned blocks.
I showed this picture in my January in Review mosaic but haven't blogged about my progress on Path and Stiles. Late last week I finished assembling 10 blocks and since these are 14" blocks I'm only going to need 20 for a lap quilt.
I am a sew by daylight person... since my quilting room has south and west exposure the afternoons are my prime sewing time and I am totally spoiled by great light. The reflected light off the snow butted up to my windows is amazing even on a cloudy day. When the sun goes down I usually read or do hand sewing under my OTTLite. Aside from anticipating spring I love that our days are getting longer now.
After an unpick to swap one of these parts elsewhere I'll be ready for assembly. These big blocks will go together quickly and it will be time to bring on the pinks, reds and whites. While I love these cozy Thimbleberries fabrics I'm ready for some happy Valentine's prints to cover my wall!
