This is April’s kitty, Lily!
Doesn’t she seem to be saying “Quilt-Cam AGAIN!????”
Yes, it’s AGAIN. And I am working on the same project AGAIN. Because it’s going to take me a long time to get this project to be where I want it to be and this is a designated time for it!
I’m back to working on the Yellow, or I should say rather the NOW Yellow block quarters that have taken over the whole thing.
I may save an additional color for the very last row around the center, but for now – yellow it is.
My reasoning? The scraps I am sewing as the string part were just too dark against an already dark background –I needed something lighter.
I’ve had some questions on how I cut out the kite shapes.
Believe me, it’s nothing rocket science, in fact it’s rather “Old School.” TEMPLATE TRACING!
My kite template and a sharpie.
I fold the fabric in fourths, trace the template so the units share a common side with as little waste as possible, and then I cut out on the lines with a rotary cutter through all four layers.
Quick, Easy and Accurate enough for a wonky string quilt!
I’m sewing tonight on JOE COOL!
Everyone needs a Wizard in their life, and Joe Cool is one of 3 Wizard machines that I own. He was made in Japan by the brother sewing machine company and sold in the USA through Western Auto stores and catalogues in the 1950s, early 1960s. All metal construction, powerful motor, straight stitch only – he hadn’t come out to play for a while so I’ve been sewing on him today.
