This was a good day to take one of my vacation days. Let's call it a pajama day. That is a day where you don't have to get dressed and you can wear pajamas all day. I did shower and shave, but I put on pajama bottoms with my t-shirt.
Just because it is a pajama day is no reason to waste the day. I have completed the last six Wonky 9-patches. One of my readers emailed a suggestion that I not put the pairs together so the quilt has a more scrappy look. I like that idea. I tried to layout the six that way. the problem was that two sets used the same background fabric. Oops! I can't make it work with just six, but you can see if you ignore the middle two. Ha ha.
They do look better separated. The purple is matched with a large print from the French General collection. I love the surprises in the blocks that it makes. Do you see the bird?
I also started another scarf on the loom. It is another commission piece. However, I am not happy with it for the intended recipient. She has a wilder style than this. The stripes are too obvious and too orderly.
On Wanda's blog, Exuberant Color, she mentioned a book by Rayna Gillman who also has a blog. I was so intrigued that I bought the kindle version on Amazon. (I had a gift card so it was a no-brainer!)
In the book she tells how to use orphan blocks and ugly fabrics to make something amazing. So I used some scrap strips as leaders and enders on the last six wonky blocks.
