What a difference a day makes. I unsewed the parts to the star points on last week’s Moda Blockhead 2 block. I realized that I had omitted the step to trim the parts. After they were trimmed, they went together as they should. I did find the missing star point. It was under the sewing machine. All’s well that ends well.
The Kimberly Einmo Blockbuster quilt top is finished. It consists of the last ten 10″ blocks. I made four of one of the blocks for the corners, for a total of thirteen blocks. It is too large for me to quilt, so it will go to a longarm quilter.
I found a backing for the small “squirrel” quilt that I made from a picture. Now that the piecing is finished, I can quilt it. Maybe hand quilting because it is small. The star blocks are 4″ square.
This is the pile of finished flying geese in the Temperature quilt. I need the black sashing strips to join the strips together. The black fabric is in New Hampshire. I’ll get it the next time that I go there.
The International Quilters, two from the United States and two from Canada, who meet every year at the Vermont quilt Festival, have decided to sew a five yard challenge. We all have the same pattern to follow. I was checking out patterns to place in the focus 6″ square when I came across a pattern that I received at a Jennie Haskins seminar. It is the perfect item for the quilt show raffle. I can embellish it a little to make it special. Maybe I will start it tomorrow. Or I could work on Dear Jane, this week’s Moda Blockhead or the Simple Sampler block which will be in an e-mail tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a fun day. The dining room table is still neat and tidy.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
