WIP Wednesday

I shopped today!

One of those chain stores had Mary Ellen's Best Spray Starch Alternative on sale! I purchased quite a few bottles as I was replenishing my inventory and plan to give it away in my Secret Pal's Goodie Bags~this year, each month I have a different Secret Pal. So I figure that I will be able to give each one a bottle, a few fat quarters of their preferred fabric and another trinket or two that I will pick up as I see something. I also added to the stash but it is already in the washer/dryer.

I also couldn't resist making a few Boxed Squares blocks. These four sub-blocks are from two 2.5 inch strips. I have quite a few of the navy with white stars so, I think I will wait to sew the bigger blocks when I can distribute the alternate blocks.

Have you used the Best Press or do you just use it as gifties? Is it scented? If you've used it, what do you think of it? I keep seeing it around and have been wondering about it. Are you thinking about a new QOV with your boxed squares?

The bottle you sent me is only 1/4 of the way full. I need to get some more. I love it.

Cute blocks. i want to make a quilt like that. Some day. LOL.

Good plan on those secret pal gifties.

My 32 oz'er came today so even though I hate ironing with a passion similar to vacuuming I look forward to trying it, LOL.
(Wouldn't you know that the 505 is backordered and that is why I ordered from that spot?)

I've not seen the Best Press before. I'll have to check the local quilt shops.

Love the boxed squares! I saw them over on Mary's blog and really liked them. Simple, but graphic.
