my creative pursuits with quilts and knits

Random Wednesday

Here is my knitting hack:

I finished a couple more Split 9-patch squares:

I am trying very hard to mix in a wide variety of neutral/light fabric instead of always using white or cream.  But I do like the strong contrast of dark and light, so the alternate nine patch is from my stack of “medium” rejects.  Those pinks and yellows don’t play well in this project.  Any suggestions on what to use them in?  And if you ever want to swap a bundle of fabric, just leave a comment!

I sewed a couple more Block Lotto pieces for my Mod Mod QOV:


The October pattern was Woven Bars.  I am hoping to work on this project on my days off this month. My school district went a little crazy, and we have both Monday and Tuesday off for Veterans Day, then a whole week for Thanksgiving.  Yay for quality sewing time, boo for the choppy teaching schedule.  Back to the QOV plan…I had trouble with the curved piecing back in June, so I have to come up with an alternate plan for those blocks, and I missed September also.  You can find all the patterns in the Block Lotto archives, using the keyword Mod Mod QAL.
