I had to wait till noon when the hubby headed out for his business trip before I could rearrange the living room properly for sewing. You know, so you can see the TV from your sewing machine?
I'm up more than an hour later than I'd hoped, but I was determined!
First I worked on the doggie quilt.
Ha ha ha...it's really windy here, but it was a goergous day, so I tried for an outside photo.
This pattern drove me nuts. The doggie blocks were too small for the lopped-off center point star blocks. After I fussed and fudged and got it together, it occured to me that maybe I should have squared up the star blocks to make them the non-specified proper size to fit with the doggies and then I'd have lopped off ALL the points to get it together? But it's a top. Done for now. If I ever make it again, I'll use the picture, not the directions, to make it.
I promise a better picture when it's not windy and/or finished.
And then on to the jelly roll my mom got me for my birthday.
30 blocks. Done. These went together really nicely (don't look at that top one...it's got a little pucker - one of only two in the whole stack - and it was the last block and I'm too tired to care to rip it out tonight), though I did have to lay each one out to make sure I got everyting sewn together properly. And the one print with stripes (directional) didn't help, but I ripped very little.
Tomorrow I plan to lay these out on my design floor. It's late and since my house was built before electricity, nightime lighting is terrible. And I'm tired. And Emma is freaking out because I'm not in bed yet (apparently her belly is not the only thing following my regular schedule!).
And then I will get out the hubby's quilt and hopefully get that into a top as well.
Oh, and I forgot what came in the mail today!
My second charm pack. I can work on that quilt, too, now! And that thank you in there is the envelope the shipping paperwork came in. Such a nice touch. Yay Fat Quarter Shop!
It's been a good day!
