quiltville and started cutting 3.5 and 2 inch strips for Bonnie's Road to Camp Gravatt quilt. I didn't think I wanted to do the wonky star points in the sashing, but knew It wouldn't work to just set the Puss-in-the-Corner blocks straight together. I considered a simple green sashing strip with a white cornerstone, but decided to use a different colored alternating block instead. I was SO close to doing red and green for Christmas, but at the last minute changed it to yellow and green instead. I reversed the color placement in the yellow blocks so that they would mesh nicely with the green blocks. I've got a stack of strip sets ready to go, but wanted to get a few up on the wall to see how the blocks played together. I'm kind of liking it. It isn't a complicated quilt, but I am enjoying the simple geometry of it. It is going to be called Kitty Korner, mainly because I always want to snicker when I have to say Puss-in-the-Corner (or Norfolk Virginia for that matter).
Sunday is pizza night, but I should really get everything cleaned up and do some work for school. Midterm exams start on Tuesday and I need to do a final proofreading so that I can make copies. I also want to finish off all the odds and ends of grading so that I can call that officially done. 5 school days until Christmas vacation! I am looking forward to staying home and sewing all day in my jammies. Especially now that I have someone to help me with the rest of the Christmas shopping.
