In spite of having tomatoes to get excited about, I haven't forgotten to quilt. But what I've been working on isn't really photogenic, nothing but two-patches. I"m making some of them from strips, and some as leader-enders, and it's taking forever! Here's 784 white-to-a-color segments:
And here's 520 blue-to-a color segments:
All these blocks, along with hundreds of half square triangles, are going in my king size jewel box quilt. I've divided my EQ drawing into 9 chunks, counted out what each chunk needs, and now I'm subdividing all these two-patch segments into baggies, putting an equal amount of each color into the 9 baggies. I'm just anal enough to want to make sure to spread out the reds and bright oranges and yellows, I didn't want a clump of any one color in my quilt. Is anyone else this nit-picky or is it just me? :D
Now comes the part I like best, sewing all these segments into blocks, and the blocks into rows. Should go faster!
PS. I have 6 little baby tomatoes on my cherry tomato plant now. :)
