I made this block 12.5" square and was reminded by another member of the guild at the end of the day that it was supposed to be a 15.5" square so I will have to add some more strips to this block to bring it up to the right size.
I also made a block from my collection of 30's prints. This is my own design. No pattern used!
After the three blocks were done, I pieced a couple of flannel backs for our charity quilts. We had some flannel leftover from previous quilts that I brought home from the last meeting, hoping to be able to piece two or three backs from them. There is still more fabric left and I will check my flannel stash to see if there is anything I can add to make a third pieced back. Sorry, there are no pictures of the flannel backings.
After lunch, I dug out my improvisational piecing project from a Jacquie Gering workshop last summer at Quilts at the Creek. I laid my blocks out on the floor in a taped grid, as suggested by Jacquie.
I ended up making one more block before putting everything together. I still had a couple of seams to finish off by the end of the day but you will get the idea by looking at the picture below.
For Slow Sunday Stitching tomorrow, I hope to finish off the hand quilting on my wool applique wall hanging. I am using black thread on black material to add some texture to this little project. I started this one at a workshop over a year ago...
Just in case you are getting worried that I won't have anything to sew once these ufo's are done, I have at least three more workshop ufo's to finish as well as other projects floating around in my mind waiting to be made. Until next time... Happy Sewing!
