Some Miscellaneous Sewing!


 I made another bow tie block (and cut a bunch more too) and then sewed the row together and added it to my top.  Unfortunately my featherweight has a smaller seam and so my row was a bit longer.  I eased to fit with lots of pinning but think I may have to take the row apart and do some block trimming before I put it back together.  Sheesh, I will never quite get that down.


 I was in a puttering mood so I sewed my pinwheels together in the colors of the rainbow.  These will eventually become the border on Jack in the Box.  I did some organizing of leftover bits and pieces and sewed this together leftover from about six years ago when Kathy and I made a Jewel Box quilt in a mystery.    It is likely to get made into a dog quilt or dog bed.
Kathy decided to join in on the fun of the mystery I am making online.  She needed fabric so we went with the leftover line that I have made two different quilts out of.  I prefer these fabrics to what I went with...mine is a QOV and hers we aren't sure yet but the colors are right.  She has already sewed up clue two and is caught up for tomorrow's clue!

That darn quarter inch--so pesky. Glad you are injoying your feather weight though. Rainbow quilt is looking great.

Yay Kathy!!!!!! And you bet--those colors are right. LOVELY.
And yay you with all your tinkering. Impressive size to your Cheddar bowtie already; how large do you plan to go?
