At retreat this weekend, I sewed the last 4 blocks I need for sea swept. I ordered studio 180 template for the sashing. I think it will save me the headache of math "to fit" what I have already made. I have the squared squared template. I ordered diamond rects. hooray. I still have many cut pieces - I may make it larger.
There is always something scrappy going on at the sewing machine. This is a Bonnie Hunter pattern from her book addicted to scraps called Carolina Chain. I had the blocks done in April. I use them as a back up portable project. So, after finishing what I need for sea swept, I started working on this project at retreat. I started joining rows which are set on point. That was too confusing for a chatty retreat, so I started sewing all the blocks into twosies.
