This is the result of my sidetracking. The half square blocks are all pieced and on the design wall. Just the blocks have been sewn. I am still moving them around every time I walk by it.

One of the hardest things about finishing the quilt is getting it folded to fit in the box.
I used lots of tape to keep it from popping open during the trip back.
And forgot to put the backing scraps from trimming the quilt. I did open it up and put the fabric inside.

A panel : Animal Party by Quilts for Kids - Robert Kaufman
I didn't get a picture before all the cutting.
I used this panel in another quilt posted about here , here and one last one here.
Here is what I have so far on the design wall. The green strips are sewn and the circles are just pinned for now.
What do you think?

I used Melody Johnson's method she posted about on June 18th . If you haven't been to her site Fibermania you are in for a really treat. It is quilted with straight lines using King Tut variegated thread. Did you go look at Melody's blog? She also has a flicker account with her quilts lots of eye candy there to look at. She also has some amazing knitting projects to share with you too and a new puppy!

I did make these lanyards for my DD to use at college. I also made one for my niece but didn't get a picture of it. It was from the green polka dot fabric left over from the apron. Picture the pink one on the left in lime green.
Not sure which clips she will like better. The clips in the middle came with the key rings so I just left them on I don't think they need them but I didn't need them either. The ones on the outside came from Hobby Lobby. I bought 3 lanyards with the cords and clipped the cords off. I could find the clips but not the clips with the swivels.
Yes, these took all of about an hour to make. Super fast and simple, my kind of project!
I also worked on the Take 5 quilt this weekend. You didn't think I finished it did you? It has been sadly sitting since June. I hope to have the top completed by this weekend.

Did you notice the post-it notes? I number my rows so I don't get them out of order. I also mark an arrow below the number going to the right of the left. This tells me what way to iron my seems and they will all nestle together nicely. Heat up the iron and press all of the seems.

Take 2 of the two squares you just sewed together and sew them together making a four patch strip. You will need 20 of these four patch strips. Remember to keep 10 two patches so you can make your rows of 10. DON'T GET YOUR IRON OUT YET!
I sewed the four patch strip to the two patch strip making a 8 patch strip. You will need 10 of these. STILL NO IRONING!
Then sew the 8 patch strip to the four patch strip. You should now have 10/10 patch strips.
You didn't plug your iron in yet, did you? We will be doing that in the part two.
