Progress has been made on the new "squirrel" that took over my sewing time last week. I enjoyed each step of working with these scraps.
It was a challenge to sew the rows together due to all the seams that are pressed open. SO MANY SEAMS!
(Nann asked in the comments about pressing the seams open. When I work with small pieces like these that finish .75", I usually press open due to the bulk, trying to get it to lay flatter.)
Not all of the seams cooperated and after a while, I stop fussing about everything laying flat and decided to let the iron sort it out!
Here is where the project is today with 25 blocks pieced and attached together. I'm waiting to decide if I'm done with this and this is the size it will be, or if it wants to be larger.
Linking up to Design Wall Monday
I like the soft effect of low-volume fabrics. Why are you pressing the seams open? (I wouldn't go to that much effort.)
Such a soft and pretty quilt this is making up to be, Kathy.
Such lovely colours.
love your soft pretty pallet
I love this soft look as well.
That's gorgeous! I just love all of the quiet colors.
Lovely, so soft and calming, and a great use of scraps. This is a beauty that I am adding to my “in the future” ideas.
