I have three more “Credits” to add to the Balance in my Account! I finished the 3 blocks that Randy assigned us this week! Sewing these also yielded me 4 more bonus cheddar bow-ties sewn as my leaders & enders!
That brings the total so far to 6 --- boy am I on a cheddar overload lately. This is what happens when you buy a solid by the bolt!
I’m liking these so far. Simple public domain blocks, in the small size that I like. Many of these can be found in the "Around The Block" books, in block base, in the little Ladie's Art Company Block Tool flip cards ---
Do you think this will make me pull out that Nearly (*@&#$(*& Insane thing back out of the drawer? I actually opened the drawer last week and saw all the parts and pieces and ---- promptly slammed that drawer shut again! Better not let that out, or it will take over!
I like small. I like a challenge. But there are SOME blocks in that quilt that just put me over the edge. I admire anyone who has finished one --- and I’ll get there some day!
Here are my 6 blocks on the cutting table…so far, so fun!
The binding saga continues chez Quiltville. I finished the binding on the little baskets quilt. Just have to finish sewing on the hanging sleeve and the label on that one and can call it done!
You saw my iphone-O-gram post last evening ---ugh. I did the usual thing –unstitched a bit, whacked it off above the seam, attached the end back on with the seam now falling above the miter ---and I kept going until ---
Sometimes I can’t get it right no matter how hard I try! I ended up one strip SHORT – good thing I had that bolt of fabric! I cut another strip, added it on, and again kept going--- The binding is now on and waiting for some sewing-down time. Every once in a while there are those quilts that just challenge our patience to within an inch of giving up. This has been that quilt for me. But it is now bound into submission.
I wanted to get some good full out pics, but it’s raining outside right now – and we could have snow in the forecast for tonight. What’s up with that?! So --- look for pics when I get the binding finished, probably after I return from Florida.
Remember tomorrow is our “Thimbles-Up!!” Linky party! Write your post, come back tomorrow morning and link it to mine and let’s show as many different types of thimbles and alternative non-thimble ideas as we can. Between us all, we are a great source of knowledge and inspiration – let’s put it in ONE SPOT to be a resource to others!
