What was waiting for me?
I did buy some fabric for my farmer's wife though and it arrived Friday.
I also have these to square up.
I am still prepping for doing Bertie. I decided to stick with the original colors of Bertie and the background so I ordered that from Fat Quarter Shop.
I decided I would square up a few farmer's wife blocks, a few of the basket weave blocks, and work on the BOM I have been doing with a group from My Quilt Place.
I sat down and calculated how many blocks I was going to do. (We usually do a couple of blocks a month) Also how my layout of my connector blocks would work.
OMG not much, about 1 yard, and I had calculated that I needed 5 strips which were 8 1/2 inches wide just for my part of my connector blocks. That did not include the 4 1/2 inch strips which I would need for the rest of the connector block. I purchased this fabric earlier this year, and the one thing I will say about batiks which makes me crazy is that it doesn't have the name of the manufacturer on it. Off I went to see if I could find the manufacturer and any shop which still carried it. I skimmed through some online shops which specialize in Batiks, and was just about defeated when I found a shop which had it! So I promptly ordered 3 yards, that should get me through my connector blocks and leave me extra for blocks. I have done 11 blocks, one I am not using it just doesn't work for me, and I am 6 blocks behind still!
Finally I pulled out a project box with a UFO. I am going to work on the yellow brick road quilt. Again.
