I had a full day of play yesterday! I got a bunch of light blues sewn which I'll link up to the RSC Challenge on Saturday.
Some friendship stars were made. Do you see the oops - one needs a little rework.
The last Squared away block was picked and sewn.
Then there were the crumb blocks. Little bits and pieces sewn together and cut to 6.5 inches then sewn into a 12.5 inch block. I seem to have cut the others in the stack to 6 and then sewed together! Oops.... good thing they are crumbs!
I packed up at that point and got some melons hand quilted onto the red dresden block to finish it off. I was too lazy to mark them so they are freehanded hopefully leaving the proper 1/4 inch all around for when I join these blocks together in the quilt as you go method. I need to prep the light blue one today for hand work tonight.
Not too bad for a little time in the sewing area!
Today... I got a little hand quilting in on the trip quilt on the frame.. since when I sat down to do it yesterday the kids got returned from Grandma's after I put one strand of thread into it. I think I'll see about sewing a few more of the triangle rows for Emily's quilt or sewing together the 1857 blocks and then if Aidan cleans the guinea pig cage we'll head to the trails for a walk after lunch.
Just a relaxing day at home for us.
