Sewing up a storm!


Kevin's mystery quilt has had me sewing like a fiend! This quilt top really needs to be finished this month, so I am spending every spare minute organizing the parts and pieces into larger units. Here are the first 6 (of 12) blocks. This is not the layout but it's getting closer. The sashings are also labour intensive and I'm working on those as leader/enders when constructing the star blocks.


But first I wanted to sew together the border pieces because I had a good start on the those units.


There are two kinds of borders - one for the top and bottom (on the right), and another one for the sides (on the left).

It's coming along well and pieces are fitting together as they should.

  5. This will be a real eye-pleaser! There is so much visual interest in his design.
    Looks very labor intensive, too. :)

  6. I abandoned this one in mid-stream. I kept doing fewer and fewer units until I stopped. Now I just have to find a way to use the abandoned pieces. Good for you in sticking with it.

  10. I'll be working on some of mine this weekend. I'll only be working on the parts that I've already cut out, since I don't want to haul all that fabric to my retreat.
