"Wells Fargo Wagon is a-comin...''


The week before last - I got a call from the manufacturer that my new ruler - LEFT-EZE™ Rule - would be on the truck headed for me Monday - 3/20/17. I didn't know when I would actually GET them - but thought that it would be one day last week. When I got notice that it would be coming on Friday - 3/24/17 - I did an EDIT UPDATE on my other blog - LEFT-EZE™ Rule - HERE -

===

EDIT UPDATE - 3/24/17 -

The first order is due to be delivered TODAY!! -

Oooooh - I can hardly wait!! - ;))

===

But then A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum -
Brownie points to those who recognize the reference -
And a link for those who have no idea - HERE -

And I had to add another one -

===

EDIT UPDATE - 3/24/17 - 2:00PM

Oops!! - The truck company just called -

The driver can't deliver the pallet today -

Because his truck is too big - ;))

Even though the delivery clearly stated that it was a RESIDENTIAL area -

Someone wasn't paying attention -

And the driver has an 18-wheeler -

And it's TOO BIG - ;))

I cracked up - too funny -

And we rescheduled delivery for Monday - 3/27/17 -

With a smaller truck - ;))

===

So - cue the Wells Fargo Wagon song from the Music Man - HERE -

Because the Wells Fargo Wagon is a-comin... - ;))



Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

On my wall today -

An EQ7 - Flower Basket block - ;))



It was a very busy week around here -

So about all I managed to do was tweak an EQ7 block -

And cut out the patches -

Using my LEFT-EZE™ Rule - ;))


I wondered aloud if I could find a Basket block in EQ7 -

That was made from HST - squares and bricks -

And that could be cut using my LEFT-EZE™ Rule -

And I found one -

Because -

For those of you who are interested -

The ruler hit the production line on Wednesday of last week -

And should be on the truck headed for me TODAY - ;))

I don't know yet when I will actually GET them -

But it should be one day this week - ;))

If you would like to "Pre-Order" a LEFT-EZE™ Rule -

And want/need order info -

Please go to my LEFT-EZE™ Rule blog - HERE -

And check out the "Order Info" page -

Thanks!! - ;))

I'm working on a tutorial for this block -

To add to the LEFT-EZE™ Rule blog -

And will be posting it to this blog first -

So stay tuned - ;))

On my wall today -

My St. Valentine's Day Sudoku Quilt from way back when - ;))


I still need to make a backing -

And the reds are all pressed nice and neat -


But that's as far as I got -

So - maybe I can make more progress this week -

Because I ran out of last week -

Really - really - fast - ;))

On my wall today -

My St. Patrick's Day Sudoku Quilt from way back when - ;))


I thought that I would pull it out because it's March already -

MARCH! - I can't believe it! -

Where does the time go? -

And why does it seem to FLY faster as I get older? -

MARCH! - Geesh! -

Anyway - here's a close-up in case you forgot -
My favorite fabric in this set is the one with the Japanese characters -
I couldn't resist putting it in a St. Patrick's Day quilt -
Just because - ;))


I had thought that I would fuse/baste my Five Stars Plus 5 next -

But first -


Don't you love it when someone says "next - but first" -

BOB always wants to ask if he/she knows the definition of "next" -
next - adj.  nearest; immediately preceding or following - adv.  1.  in the nearest time, place, rank, etc.  2.  on the first subsequent occasion -


And yes - BOB knows the definition - but it's still FUN to say -

Next - but first - ;))

All I wanted to do was fuse/baste the top NEXT -
But before I could do that I had to find some more pinmoors to stabilize it -
And I had used them all on the Christmas Table Topper -
So I had to do the stitch-in-the-ditch on that FIRST -
To free up the pinmoors - or buy some more -


Then I saw the Valentine's Day Sudoku up on the wall and thought I might as well fuse/baste that one, too -




But first -

I need to make a backing -

So I found some reds and pressed them all nice and neat - ;))


Then I can fuse/baste the St. Patrick's Day Sudoku Quilt -
While I'm in the fuse/basting mode -

But first -

I need to make the backing for that one, too - ;))

These greens should work -

Get them them OUT of the scrap bin and into something useful - ;))


All I really wanted to do was baste/fuse the Five Stars Plus 5 -

Next -

But first -


I saw a whole bunch of Squirrels -

Who led me astray - ;))

Playing with the back -


It's really no secret that I don't like to make "backings" for my quilt tops -

And that's probably why so many wind up as UFOs just sitting in a pile - ;))

I DO like piecing a quilt top, though -

But they usually take me a while and by the time I do that -

I'm bored with the project and decide to chase another "Squirrel" - ;))

So - sometimes I play a little game with myself -

And I pretend that the "backing" is another quilt TOP -

In the same or similar fabrics -

So it tricks my brain -

And I can have some FUN with it -

Instead of it being a chore - ;))

So this time -

I pulled out four of the left-over 2-1/2" strips to save/use for the binding -

And sewed up the little bits and pieces that were lying about -

Made a "strip" of them -

Put the 10" squares up on the design wall - scattered them around -

Along with the left-over sections of the ones that I used to cut the 1-1/2" strips -

Added some red "filler" scraps -

And got this - ;))



I knew that I could make Hourglass Blocks and Flying Geese Units -

With the odd HST and QST -


But I had forgotten that I could also make Pinwheel Blocks - ;))


Now I have no excuse -

Five Stars Plus 5 -

Is ready to fuse/baste and QUILT!! - ;))
