The next block on this journey is “Meetings”!
I made “Meetings” in the last couple of days after a long search to find a traditional pattern that would represent chairs or a group of people together but I did not have much luck…so “Meetings” was born out of necessity!
The block represents the chairs around a central motif counting the number of weeks in the program (for me it is 4 weeks!).

I first designed an idea on paper and then instead of trying to figure out the size of the pieces I used these ‘Bonus Triangle’ blocks left over from the lap size ‘Star Snowball’ topper I recently finished…
Using those blue and white half square triangles as the base I marked off a line on the back that was 1/2″ from the sewing line on the white part and sewed a piece of scrap fabric from the crumb bin. The center is a leftover 4 Patch and then I added the triangles to each edge for a Square In a Square.
Happy Sewing Everyone!
