It’s a great night for sewing in the scraps!
This is Priscilla’s machine and her view of Quilt-Cam while working on her Boxy Stars blocks --
I'm with my BC friends again (I'm from CT) and we are sewing your boxy stars. We each made 48 units to make 12 blocks. On my last trip we did the crumb quilt together. Great sewing along with you.Thanks for sharing the photo, Priscilla! I just love to see what progress you are making.
It’s been a bit of a crazy day today – but the tooth crown is re-cemented into place and we will try to make it work a little longer before we have to do a whole new crown.
Isn’t that the way life throws us little whammies? When you least have the time to deal with something….there it is, popping off your tooth and laying there in your mouth like a marble. Dental Drama.. ACCCK!
I’ve spent the afternoon working on my “Step Outs” for my taping of the Quilt Show this month. They all have to be done before I leave Saturday!
The project I am showing for my episode is the combining of traditional pieced blocks with string patchwork ---and we are using the Jamestown Landing quilt as a demo, so I’ve been making half square triangle units all afternoon, leaving things in different steps of completion so y9u can see how I get from one place to another – yet leaving SOME parts to be demo-sewn while on camera.
I’m now to the point where I need 16 neutral string units, so tonight’s Quilt-Cam will have me working on those and pulling from this bin:
The bin! She overfloweth!
Fabric just never goes away, it only gets cut smaller – right?
Getting a head start!
I think I’ve got enough to keep me busy during Quilt-Cam tonight. I’m sewing on my two tone 301 short bed, known by collectors as L-BOW (Elbow) in coloring. That’s LIGHT BROWN, OYSTER WHITE – I tend to think of her as a Belair – much like the two ton3ed cars of the era. She’s a mid 1950s girl, the twin to the one I keep up at Quilt Villa. LOVE these machines.
