I finally made the blocks for my *Potato Chip* quilt! I've been seeing these around the web and have been wanting to try one. So last Friday, I used the reward system with my sewing room activities. Do something I like (make 8 blocks), do something I don't want to do (trim 45 skate lace bracelets), do something I like (make 8 more blocks), do something I don't want to do (feed string through backpacks) and finally do something I like (make more blocks)! Before I knew it~I had all the blocks made and a few projects finished up!
I never really *found* exact instructions for this quilt~I cut my centers at 8.5 inches and the framing strips at 2.5 inches. The blocks will finish at 12 inches.
Second project: The scrapbook cover for Jonathon Blum's scrapbook. Jon's now playing for our parent club, the Nashville Predators but I still scrapped half the season while he was here in Milwaukee.
Now the questions is: do I have the Admirals' office mail it to Jon or do I try to attend a Predator game and try to meet up with him after the game to give it to Jon? A big part of the fun in these players' scrapbooks is watching the players reactions to the work you have done on his book...
