Wow, two posts in one day!!! I had intended to post about my quilting updates, but...just haven't gotten around to it. Long story short - Tate and I didn't have a very good weekend at the last sheep dog trial - so been doing a lot of "soul searching" - replaying runs through my mind, analyzing my training methods, wondering how to tweak this and fix that - hence - what a great time to sit at the sewing machine and get caught up on projects!
So, with the needle flying here's my progress!!
About 35 more FG units finished this week for a total of 205!!! (only 235 to go!!!) (This picture is only a few of them)!
I had finished the Granny Square blocks about ten days ago, but needed more fabric for the sashing and border. I love how the top came together. This is a quilt for Gracen's cousin Emma who will be born around Thanksgiving.
I also got caught up on Randy's Barrister Blocks! Some of these were a little tricky - but I am liking them!
And of course I'm pretty much keeping up with Barbara Brackman's Grandmother's Choice blocks.
The middle block was Rocky Road to Kansas. It was similar to another block we did called Amethyst. I wanted it to look different, so I used the technique from http://www.quilterscache.com/R/RockyRoadtoKansas.html. It was a new technique for me and I really enjoyed it!!
As I had mentioned before I'm using chain blocks for setting blocks and I am assembling as I go! I'm really liking it!! What do you think? Is there enough color in the blocks to set them off?
Well, there it is - my flying stitches update! I'm working on some other projects which I will share later, and of course I'm still hand quilting on TWQ!!! Hope a reveal in a few weeks!
Blessings to each and every one of you! Your comments, encouragement and friendship bless me richly!!
Praying for the safety of everyone on the east coast!
Happy Fall Ya'll!!!!!
