I didn't get everything done that I put on the list on Friday, but I made good progress.
I'll mostly just show pictures because they say plenty!
I started with this for the photo quilt:
And then there was the layout
(with lots of help - #4 is just out of the shot):
And then I had this (thanks hubby for holding it up!):
And now I have this:
Ready for quilting, but what pattern?
And then there's the April UFO, started here:
Cutting in and carefully placing pieces with lots of help!
And then I sewed and sewed and sewed and had this:
(those sashings? 1" cut - 1/2" finished!)
Now I can put it away!
Refiguring before cutting:
Sewing and cutting and moving things around:
Uh oh...anyone see my mistake?
I double-checked the way I was sewing those triangles and STILL got it wrong!
But I think I'm going to like it this way better.
Good thing because it was too late at that point!
And now we have this:
It will be 3x3 blocks, or 6x6 quarters.
I'll figure out exact dimensions when I've got this part together and can decide on border widths and whatnot.
I didn't get to the Baltimore Album block, but since that's not due until June, I've got time.
Now it's back to the grown-up, real world.
Ironing clothes for work.
But maybe I can talk the hubby into ice cream for dessert?
Tasty Twist has cake batter ice cream as their flavor of the week...
PS How do you sit at your machine? This is how I do things at my house. Sometimes I do it this way at the cutting table as well...
I'm not sure Luka realizes he weighs about 13 pounds, but we've both learned to adapt to this method.
