Not Much

I spent the day doing household chores that really needed to be done.  After breakfast, I made a long list of things that I should work on today.  There are just two items left on the list this evening, so I feel that I had a good day.

The Moda Block head project is up to date.  Just a few more to make and then they can go into a quilt. IMG_1921

The backings are ready for two quilts.  One will go into the basting frame tomorrow.  After I baste it and quilt it, I will decide if I’ll quilt the other one or send it to the long arm quilter.  She does such a beautiful job and I want this one to be nice.

I’ve been drafting a 2″ x 6″ block.  The 1/4″ seam allowance was  added to the pieces.  It seemed like a lot of work to piece the large amount of blocks that I needed for the project.   The block has two 1″ half square triangles, plus other size triangles.  As I was looking at it, I suddenly realized that It could be paper pieced.  The block was in EQ7 already.  With a few clicks of the mouse, I had the numbered paper piecing pattern.  It will be easy and accurate.  I was able to print three blocks on each paper. The colors change in each set of three blocks. I can write the proper color on the papers and keep everything in order.  I saved myself a lot of frustration by thinking about what to do before I started.  The quilt is in Southwestern colors.  A few years ago, when I flew over Utah and Arizona I saw these colors in the landscape and commented that those colors would make a beautiful quilt.  Now I will find out.

Have a great day and happy quilting.

  1. I got so behind with my Moda Blockheads. After Christmas I made a big push to catch up and did. Then I got distracted by another quilt and am behind again. Seeing your block has inspired me to make another push! Can’t wait to see yours because we chose very different fabrics and colors.

    1. The Moda blocks have been on the back burner since I’ve been in N. H. We’ll have to do show and tell together next summer. Maybe by then I will have them all finished and put together. One can only hope.
