Just a wee bit of orange sewing has been going on here this week. A few Alamo stars were made as leader-ender blocks, and a couple of pumpkin seeds were hand stitched. I am using up some small pieces of orange left over from my first scrap squad quilt. To see what the rainbow scrappers are accomplishing, hop over to the Saturday link up. Angela has a draw going on to win a bundle of Vicki's yummy hand dyed fabric. (I won a package of her fabric last year and loved it - you can see the quilt I made here) The majority of my sewing time this week has been focused on finishing my next scrap squad quilt, which will be posted on Friday on the Quiltmaker blog.
I am struggling with some perfectionistic tendencies about these seam joins. This just does not make me happy. Only 1 of the 4 HST blocks are accurately positioned at this join, in spite of using a thousand pins. Sheesh ....that's a 25% success rate. And that is how it's going overall with the piecing of these blocks. I know I can do better than that, but it's these darn bias triangle edges that are kicking my butt! Okay... enough complaining, gotta get back to "work"!
