I made another star block this weekend. This time, I used my Civil War repros.
I really want to show the flexibility of the block, so I’m using different fabric styles to make each block. I don’t quite know what I’ll do with them. Maybe four small quilts?
I also got the instruction handouts made and tweaked the cutting instructions a bit. My next block will be made following the instructions, just to make sure they’re clear. I thought my deadline for all that was Feb 1, but it was really Mar 1…better early than late, I always say…but I sure could have used those three hours yesterday to work on something else.
I also spent a good bit of the weekend working on baby quilts. Here’s a peek at some texture. I added a lot of texture to the quilt. Texture was all it needed.
I’ve got the second baby quilt in the machine, working on the ditch work. And, it has a lot of ditch work…jimminy
Everybody have a great Monday. Much was moved in the sewing studio, but very little is fit for viewing yet. Rob did a very nice installation on the TV and components, so that freed up a lot of space. Now, I get to figure out how to use that space. Usually, when I clean in the sewing studio, I knock out everything I can in a day. And, then I’m done. This whole working on it for a little bit every weekend is a new and novel approach for me. Hopefully, the result of the extra time spent planning will benefit me for years to come…because I really don’t want to do this again for a long time.
BTW, does anybody else feel like they have too much fabric? Or is it the general consensus that the one who dies with the most fabric wins? Rob asked if I needed a “take a number” dispenser and a cutting table to open up shop.
Now, having too much and getting rid of any of it are two totally different things.
