I pulled out various colours to use for sashing for this blue colour block quilt including orange, golden yellow and red. As you can see, red won! The sashing was cut 1.5" wide and finishes at 1". I will have to piece the backing of this quilt and I will likely add some medium blue solid binding when it is quilted.
I have a bunch of quilts ready for walking foot quilting, most of which are already pin basted...I need a chunk of time and also must clear off my sewing table to do this. This is difficult when Finn is here as he can't come in the sewing room...too many things for him to get into in there.
I made one more block for the Modern BOM this week. This one involved some paper piecing.
I laid my blocks out on the kitchen floor to take a picture. 8/12 done now. I have the pattern for #9 and the last three blocks will be released over the next coupe of months.
Finn wandered in to see what I was doing. He loves to get his picture taken so he posed nicely.
My daughter had a wee bit of time this week to do a bit of embroidery as a break from her heavy work load.
I watched a movie on Netflix, The Bucket List, and worked on Love Birds. I have started the next blue flower now. I sure hope that there are no counting errors so that as I close the circle, it comes together as the pattern says it should!
There was some knitting time this week as well. I seem to be getting better at the cables as I add more rows to the practice piece.
Lots of Spring buds and flowers this week when I was out for my walks at the park and in our backyard.
I will link up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (this month's colour is blue) and the Slow Sunday Stitching crew. I hope to do some more work on Love Birds tomorrow, perhaps in our gazebo. Take care and stay safe.
