Quilt Calendar Block
The quilt block for January 7th of my calendar is a Harlequin Star Block. For one block cut 4 red and 2 white squares at 3 1/2", and cut 4 red and 4 white squares at 3 7/8" (then cut into 2 triangles each). I cut the fabric for this block last night and sewed 3 blocks today. I started cutting the fabric for the next block. I ran out of the fabric though (a fat quarter), and had to go to the store to buy more. I also bought some batting so that I can finally finish a quilt that I started 7 years ago.
I am on row 3 of the corkscrew scarf. I started off with 240 stitches and now have twice as many. I was able to knit one and a third row while watching a movie last night.
