Not Quite Wordless Wednesday

This was going to be a Wordless Wednesday post, but I just have too much to say.


It has been both peaceful and pieceful at my house.  It is still school holidays and we have settled into our very relaxed mode without much effort.  On the other hand I have been busy piecing and have thoroughly enjoyed the process of putting together these blocks.


Nine blocks are finished and I am now playing with the layout.

Coming from a numbers backgroud and for those of readers who enjoy the stats:     9 blocks, each block has 32 Half Square Triangles and 32 squares.  A total of 288 Half Square Triangles and 288 unpieced squares make up the nine blocks.  A grand total of 864 patches of fabric.  (My education was not wasted after all!)


I also received some swap fabric in the mail last week that I absolutely adore.  Cute Japanese fabrics are still high on my stash enhancement list.  These were sent by Amy from Badskirt.

Thanks Amy for a great swap!
