An enjoyable weekend

I got to play in my sewing room some this weekend, and here are the results. I had hoped to get just a little more done, but I'm happy with what I've accomplished.

A second block on Clifford's Bear Chase

I re-worked a part of the original Anniversary Stars block I had done when I realized that the upper left corner piece was supposed to be a dark, not a light square. Then I put three more together.

I finished the bottom half of the May Country Baskets block. I have also fused the top half, but I didn't take a picture of that yet.

And I started another quilt that I've been wanting to start for a while - my Cotton Theory quilt. Because it is reversible, this is just the start of side one - corner squares pieced to the larger squares on the diagonal, then trimmed. 36 of them - half pieced to one corner, half to the other.

I need to do the same thing for the alternate side pieces, and then I will cut the batting squares and begin the quilting.

I still want to go ahead and make the next couple of blocks for my Blocks From the Past quilt. Maybe I'll have a chance to do that this week, if not this weekend.
