They will finish at six inches each unless I decide, down the road, to make them bigger.
After I'd made that set I started another batch of log cabin/courthouse steps style blocks.
These will finish at eight inches each - unless I decide to build them up to twelve inches. 😉
Making these blocks has fulfilled the goal of using up scraps and satisfying my need for fairly mindless sewing, thus also fulfilling the objective for Bee, Myself and I selfish sewing. Except that all of these blocks will probably eventually end up in a quilt I give away in the end. Oh well, you can't win them all!
On a little more selfish note, about 18 months ago I started making Turkey Track blocks out of some of my more favorite prints with the intention of making a quilt for myself. Depending on how I decide to lay them out I either have enough or more than enough. The typical layout for these blocks does not appeal to me but so far I haven't been able to pin down anything I like better or am willing to attempt. I got them out the other day and tried once again to figure out what to do with them.
I did not succeed in creating a definite plan but I did find yardage I didn't have when I was making the blocks that might work for setting and/or borders.
So, progress by baby steps. 😊
