An Omission

Yesterday while typing up my WIP list I had the nagging feeling that I was forgetting something. It turns out I was, and not just the basket of projects lurking under my sewing table that I'm trying to decide if I should share. I think it would scare all of you because of the sheer amount of projects I already have lined up. I thought keeping it there would help keep me from starting new things, but alas, I am drawn to the new and shiny.

But I am digressing. Those projects may have their time on this blog when I have time to photograph and share. Accountability, right?

The project I was forgetting was the February challenge set forth by Candi at Raccoon Creek Quilts. It hit me at work and instead of editing yesterday's post, I thought I would include it here. Afterall, I am having a blast with her challenges and think you should check them out. Candi pushed us to create a block and post a tutorial, which I would not have done otherwise.

This month, she is challenging us to create something using the Cathedral Windows block. This block is on my list, in fact I have a stash of charms (French General's La Petite Ecole) to make a large quilt. I haven't decided on a solid for them and want to finish up the other large quilts I have in progress before I start this one.

Apron Pattern

But I also bought a pattern awhile back that uses this block. It's a 1978 pattern for an apron. This is what I'm going to make this month, although I will be altering the length quite a bit. I'm 5'10" and don't want a floor length apron. Knee length it will be.

As I'm typing this up, I also think it would be great to see a border of Cathedral Windows on a dress or skirt. That will be a future project once my list gets whittled down.

If this interests you or you're looking for a fun challenge every month, please visit Candi's blog and join in!

I think it would look good on a skirt as well as the apron, Katie. Look forward to seeing the apron finished...
