After the scrappy frenzy abated last week, I was able to get back to some projects that had languished a bit, waiting on a fresh store of materials with which to sew onward...
"Seeing Stars" with my Figures HSTs
I also made a test block for Ben's "Peaks and Paddocks", and upon it's successful outcome, proceeded to cut all the background, and began sewing the 48 charm pairs for the 96 HST units needed.
I tested it because, unlike the original Bake Shop recipe, which used a variety of light prints for the background, I am only using white. I figured I could eliminate a couple seams by using a single strip through the center of the block, instead of 3 white squares. I will quilt it as tho the seams are there, and I think it will work out just fine :)
My weekend began with a little housework...
A girl's gotta do what she's gotta do, right?
It is sew fun to be completing this quilt! As funny as the palette is, I still find it as pleasing as when I first pulled the "happy stack"!
Oh! I almost forgot to mention...I made a barn quilt as part of a collaboration with Linda Hungerford for American Quilter magazine. The article is in the March 2015 issue....check out my post about it here!
Here's to happy sewing where you are!
