These four blocks make up the pattern Recess by Debbie Maddy. Once the blocks are stitched together, I’ll add a border and another charity quilt done!
Made with half-square triangles, if it looks complicated, it’s not. This is a fun and easy pattern.
I did plan to finish it tonight but weather warnings about Hermine – most schools are closed tomorrow in anticipation of up to 8 inches of rain – dictated that I unplug my sewing machine. I lost satellite service a little before 11 PM so the wind and heavy rain is coming.
While we have power and my machine is unplugged, I pulled out a large cutting mat, put a fresh blade in my rotary cutter and started working on batting for the next batch of kennel quilts.
Anne Mixon, QOV State Coordinator for South Carolina and professional longarmer, dropped off three large bags of batting scraps. I still have scraps that need to be stitched together but I already have a nice inventory ready to work with.
Barring any disasters, I am ready to start making kennel quilts with Halloween fabrics. I want to put these in PetSmart and local shelters to encourage adoption.
Have a good evening and if you are in the path for Hermine, be safe.
