Just takes 2 again!

Surprised?     The last installment of the Just Takes 2 project contained these eight blocks.

We also received layout instructions for Section C. I am glad that I decided to wait until the end to sew all the blocks together as I seem to have a large pocket of purple.  I know I will be able to readjust things later. I am really looking forward to seeing how Kathy's layout looks in comparison ;)!

Have you ever wanted to join in a Quilt-A-Long?  Jenny (Sew Kind of Wonderful) & Helen (HGMR Deco Quilting) are starting a new QAL called "Curve it Up".  You need the Quick Curve Ruler (which I highly suggest you add to you quilting arsenal anyway), 2 yards of background fabric and about 12 fat quarters.  Instructions will be out every two weeks for 6 months.  You will make twelve 16 1/2" traditional blocks that have been tweaked using the QC Ruler.  You can learn all about it here.  I have been rummaging around through my fabric stash and came across another pile of my Northcott Fat Quarter winnings.  I happened to find a background fabric the last time I was out shopping.  They have been waiting for just the right project and this might be it.

Now back to my frame.  I think I finally decided what to do in the large open white spaces...


  1. The handdyes look so awesome in these blocks. I, too am looking forward to seeing what Kathy's layout will be. Happy stitching. A

  2. Hey that was fast! Guess your the keener this month! :)
    Hope to catch up next week and also find some fabric for Jenny's QAL.
