Scrap-ilocks and the ugly blocks, part deux plus beaded bracelet finish
Then I started to not enjoy doing them for the challenge so I finished them up with a couple more colors, green and Rust, to go with purple, blue and brown.
At least it is the look I was going for while using scraps instead of blended fabrics, and making them much larger than the pattern said.
That resulted in having less blocks come out of each strata.
And I constructed them differently as well, placing the blocks right sides together sewing diagonally then cutting apart into the mirror image HST blocks.
Anyway.. they weren't looking like I thought, so I just finished them into a lap quilt size 45 X 62 ish.
The quilt is in two halves now: blocks sewn together into two halves of a quilt ready for quilting in sections.
I might add a border, not sure... kind of want it finished.
I think I might donate this quilt but want it to go to just the right person who needs it...
I also finished my beaded bracelet...
It is very interesting and wearable and I've actually worn it twice... so that's a good thing.
And believe it or not, I have beads left over.
