I thought that I would have a full day of sewing today, but started the day by giving Miss Molly a bath. She doesn’t mind the bath too much. It’s when she gets out of the wash tub that the fun begins. She shakes the water all over the place and the floor is flooded until I can dry her legs. Every time that Miss Molly has a bath, I have to clean the bathroom from top to bottom. It probably needed it anyway. Then I have to change all my clothes. After that I did some other needed house work. By the time that I got to the sewing machine, it was almost lunchtime.
I did finish two Moda Blockhead 2 blocks and two Splendid Sampler blocks. There is just one block left to finish and I will be caught up until Wednesday and Thursday when new blocks show up in my e -mail.
Moda block # 27 is called Mountain Climbing. It was designed by Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles. The block is 18″ x 18″. It consists of 64 half square triangles and 17 squares. It was easy to piece, except that there were so many pieces. I oversize half square triangles and trim them to size with a Tucker Trimmer. It was time consuming.
Moda block #28 is called Lincolns Platform. It was designed by Barbara and Mary from Me and My Sister Designs. The block is 12″ x 12″. It was easier to make than block #27. There were only four half square triangles with squares and rectangles.
The Splendid Sampler blocks are Radio Waves by Pat Sloan and Cathedral Windows by Jenny Doan. The Splendid Sampler blocks are 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ unfinished. They work up quickly and are made with different techniques. I have only one Splendid Sampler block to finish. It is an applique. Somehow, even though I like to applique, I put that type of block aside until I have to make it.
Maybe I can finish the applique block by the time that the new ones show up.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
