All the blocks I have done so far except Cobwebs are in the above pic. Looking good! I think it is almost time to put a Quilt of Valor top together for Alicia.
Here is my knitted scrubbie...it didn't quite turn out like the picture in the pattern, but I think it had more to do with the way I sewed it together and scruched it than with the actual knitting. I will be making more since I think they make cool little gifts! Again thanks go out to Becky for leading me to the pattern!
Kathy helped me do some cutting after I worked today and then I sewed up Constellation. It went together well. This is one of Amy's Passions BOM's for June.
I also sewed up Cobwebs...this one was a snap! Now the third block is cut and partially sewn, but as always I flipped the triangles on the rectangular piece and so I have eight all the same instead of four that mirror each other. The funny thing is before I started I knew that would happen and was determined to do it right. So I did the first four and then paid CAREFUL attention to Amy's clear pictures for the next four. I then cut them all before even checking them (huh, duh!) and then realized I had done the first four wrong and then the second four exactly as the picture showed. The good news is I didn't even get frustrated...just turned off the machine for the night and went out for pie! Coconut Cream if you want to know. It was good and tomorrow I will try again on block three!
We also got the State Fair Schnibbles all cut in Kate Spain's Twelve Days of Christmas fabric. Tomorrow I should be starting that one too! I am hoping not to get too attached to this Schnibble because I would like to give it to my mom for Christmas (or her birthday in August). So far I have not been able to part with a single Schnibbles which is odd because usually I give away most of the quilts I make!
I really want to participate in some blocks the NewQuiltingClub is making for our anniversary celebration and also the Mystery Quilt that JudyL is doing for June, but so far I haven't committed to either...I have printed out the directions for both and just keep dreaming!
