Yesterday I had planned to play. I had seen this quilt and I really liked it!
I don't have the name of the pattern or the block yet. But its made using the "train wreck" rulers (Tri Recs) and a drunkard's path block. So I made one--
Oops! My drunkard's path block has the wrong size inner piece! My block looks just like a giant spider! I'll play with this again later.
I'm sewing the Fall in the City blocks to the sashing strips. Not much to look at. Please see everyone's design wall posts at Patchwork Times.
We had a big storm last week, lots of snow and ice. Ken waited until the city plows went and did the sidewalks. Today he moved the big drifts into a pile so we could park in front of our house on the street.
I quilted the R/W/B Album quilt this week--
I dyed a blue backing and quilted it with my favorite pantograph Fantasia--
I did a little online shopping this week. Missouri Star had free shipping and I ordered two cones of thread--
Yesterday I put borders on the brown album top--
A light inner border, and then brown on the long sides and the sky blue on the top and bottom. The inner border fabric was scraps and there wasn't enough of the either the brown or sky blue to all four borders, so I used both.
Load another top
I'm not sure how much sewing I'll get done this week. Saturday is a Sew In with Lorri2Rs.
Winter is definitely the time to sew. Its so much easier to stay inside when its cold and nasty!
