Assorted homespun strips in mostly browns and blues, a little bit of green...........
........sewn into a panel. The panel is 15 one inch strips long and 42" wide. I only needed a 7" strip so I will be making the rest of the panel into a table runner. Very country primitive.
And the finished block.......Only one more to go which I will start now because I did all the prep work this afternoon. I like to put on mindless crime shows or movies on TV while I do handwork.
While I was at my cutting table I ripped homespun fabrics into fat quarters.
I bet I have 600 or so pieces of homespun that I've collected over the years. Most are 2-4 yards each.
Putting them in the shop for sale.
Ooops.....Picture is sideways.
I also rip a 2-3" strip from each one .
I use them to tie onto all my baskets and graters and enamelware buckets and bowls
that I sell in the shop.

for the design wall. I finished these four sections and I only have 2 more to go.
This Patek/Brannock pattern is almost 17 years in the making.
I can't believe I only have two more to go.
I spent the day in my sewing loft and was able to piece two tablerunners and stitched some 2" green and brown strips together. I'm not sure what I will do with the panel yet.
I will open my shop tomorrow and have to work a real job for a few hours tomorrow night so won't get any sewing done.
But............I have off the next two days so they will be spent in the loft.
I hope you have time to do some sewing.
Until next time................
