I found that bag again last friday and determined to sew it up. All the blocks were sewn together into strips and the sashing fabrics were in the bag.
I can't recall if I made the original double 4patch blocks. I think that they were given to me to use in a charity quilt. The first border is actually a lovely purple rose colour, in the photo it appears brown. Measures 45 1/2 inches wide by 54 inches long. I am thinking that I might do the quilting and use it to practice a new pattern.
I didn't get any knitting or crocheting done, though I did buy a copy of the latest Interweave Knits. I haven't bought this one previously though I will definitely buy it again in the future.
