[Scroll down two posts or click here for the SMS/scrap bag giveaway]
Two nights ago I had to watch Goodbye Columbus for class (or rather for the class I'm teaching for, so I could effectively meet with my students about their papers on it). This offered me a nice opportunity to spend 1.5 hours doing something crafty as well. My best multi-tasking occurs while I sew and watch things. Given the short amount of time (and the tiny amount of crafting time I have in the next 3 weeks), I wanted to start and finish something during this period.
Therefore I decided to make some disappearing 9-patch blocks to send to Rachel for her Irish Flood Quilt efforts. I've got other donation quilts to finish, but a few blocks was a do-able thing, so I grabbed some remnant fabric, made some 9-patches, and chopped them into disappearing 9-patches. I used mostly medium primary colors so that they will hopefully blend more easily with the blocks other people make. I really love the turquoise/brown/red/yellow combination, and I need to remember that for future projects. The blocks off in the mail today, and I'm back to work for the near future.
