School was called off early this morning. It had already started sleeting at my house and we usually get a little more of everything on the ridge than they do in town. Luckily the roads didn't get bad, but it is always a pain to go to school and have to get the students home in the middle of the day.
I am starting a new quilt because I don't have the fabric for the sashing and borders for this one. I have all 42 blocks made and waiting on the design wall.
Several years ago, I came across this quilt from Galloping Pony Studio. It is made up of 4-inch blocks with a bible verse in the border around each block.
I love the freshness and simplicity of it.
I already had this book of 4 inch blocks (that I have never used)
and decided this would be the perfect project. I am making a collection of bible verses that have a special meaning to me and my life. This afternoon I started making the templates needed. I am using card stock instead of template plastic because I will only use them for one block.
This will definitely be an on-going project. I can imagine that there is a limit to the amount of 4-inch blocks I can make until it gets monotonous.
Really thankful for the warm wood stove in the den. I set up a table in front of the stove and TV and watched Bones as I traced blocks. I will probably leave the table set up with the project on it for the next couple of days because I have a feeling I will be home another day or two this week.
Back to work tomorrow and then more bad weather called for on Thursday and Friday.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
