I am glad to be writing a blog post again. Work duties got the overhand these last two weeks. Something had to give.
At the moment I am really tired. Like when you need toothpicks to keep your eyes open, you know?! I still have to be in school for a theatre show with my class this evening. But in between my last meeting today and the show I have found some time to write this post. I thought I would rather do it now than tomorrow. The next two days will consist of me sitting on my behind, meeting after meeting after meeting after meeting…
(Okay, nagging time is over!)
Even though my free time was limited, I have been sewing. Just not blogging.
I have been playing with a bag full of flannel scraps I was given by a fellow quilter&teacher.
I started with pulling out all of the light blue, green and teal pieces.
I cut them up using my new accuquilt machine into 4×2″ rectangles, 2″squares and 2″HST.
Some random piecing and fudging the seams!
At first I followed the instruction on the accuquilt about the grain of the fabric, but later I cut every piece howere I liked… This quilt top is a “make-do” project. I did see a difference in size of the block when using a different fabric orientation (on the machine), but it did not bother me for this project. Lots of fudging anyway!
This where I am at now.
There is enough fabric to add another row to both sides.
The rest of the scraps I turned into 12″ squares (finished size) for a quilt-as-you-go project.
I have some gorgeous purple blocks to show you next time!
