I got looking at the gray and blue fabrics again, and decided to use both! I made 25 hour glass blocks yesterday.
I have my blocks all laid out on the design wall and and after some tweaking of spinning four patch block placement, I have everything ready to sew together now. I am doing a 7 by 7 layout with hour glass units in the corners. There may or may not be borders. I will decide after I get the middle part together.
I made a couple more comfort quilt blocks for the Elgin Piecemakers charity project this week. This block above is for a special comfort quilt made in memory of one of our members who passed away in the fall. Her favourite block was a churn dash and she often made a churn dash block for our comfort quilt each month. My April block is done now too. We were given the green batik fabric for the stem and leaves of the flower and then we each get to choose a bright colour for the flower. I chose an orange batik from my stash.
My embroidery project has had lots of stitches added this week. I stitched during sewing time at the London Modern Guild today too.
The chimney is satin stitch.
I am going to work on the scalloped detail along the edge of the roof next. Tomorrow morning, I will link up with Kathy for Slow Stitching Sunday. Won't you join me in admiring everyone's projects?
