Little Winding Ways Blocks

Now that I have nine of these little 3″ Winding Ways variation blocks done, I’m tempted to make a lap quilt using these fabrics and blocks of this size. These blocks are destined for a mug rug but the temptation is almost impossible to resist. I may change my mind once I get these all sewn together but somehow I don’t think that will make a difference.

The back of two of the blocks, after the seams were graded and the blocks were pressed.

I’ve been jumping from project to project over the past week and rarely finishing even a block. One of the projects I’ve been working on involves taking apart some of the masks I made at the beginning of the pandemic. They weren’t used or given to people because shortly after they had been finished the recommendation came out to add a third layer to masks. At that point I started making a different kind of mask as well, so I had quite a stack of masks that needed to be either taken apart or thrown out. I used a lot of Kaffe Fassett fabrics for the masks and didn’t want to toss them. So now they’ll get used for something – what, I’m not exactly sure, but possibly clamshells or drunkard’s path.

Baxter likes to have a nice cushion to curl up with.

  1. Love those blocks, it’s a good thing you have so many projects going so you have plenty of quilts to change your mind about, LOL! Just kidding!
    Baxter looks like he’s in control of the house!


    • Baxter is in control of the house! I think you’re right – it is a good thing I have so many projects on the go. That way no matter if I change my mind, I’m sure to find something that appeals to me to work on.




    • That’s Baxter’s “I’m the king of the castle,” look.

      I think that those blocks are perfect for a mug rug for a friend who has decorated with very pretty fabrics somewhat like those in the little blocks.




  2. Fabric is too good to discard, I save every last smallest scrap of batik for anything in the future too. Thos pastel shades are delightful.


  3. What can I say about Baxter that hasn’t already been said! He certainly knows how to command your attention. Your quilt is lovely Cathi. It’s such a soft colour.
