I had a somewhat productive week. I finished 35 Jacob’s Ladder blocks, made a few (well 6) with errors and had to resew them. You would think that after making seven different Bonnie Hunter quilts, I would have the knack for production piecing, oh well. Trying to figure out a border for it, possibly making one out of 4 inch assorted squares, that should reduce the scraps. Going to get the top laid out, and figure out a “random” pattern.
I am almost done with the Postcard Cuties top, just one more appliquéd corner oval, 15 minutes of sewing.
I made two more Farmers Wife blocks, going to make two more today for a total of 16. Only 83 more to go ha.
I also worked on the Rock Candy Quilt, I figured out an elongated double diamond shape with zen-tangle squares in the center row, as there are 9 rows. Two rows for a diamond leaves one row for a square. I’ll get a picture of it soon.
Finally, I started the machine embroidery on the saddle pads for my horse trainer. Five of them, each takes 50 minutes. They look nice, I hope I’m not setting myself up to make more for other members of the barn. Commercial embroidery is not what I do. I think the amount of time and effort needed to produce a finished product is not appreciated in the non-sewist world. Less then that of quilts…people don’t see the value.
Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.
