I’ve got the first two rows now set together. And I think that’s enough sewing for this weekend – except I plan to do some hand stitiching tonight on a quilt binding after I find some dinner.
Here’s the vertical rows with their joining pieces all put together.
Then, I opened up EQ to see what measurements I needed for the vertical pieced rows, wrote down the measurements and then went on to play with a design I had been fiddling with. And fiddled some more so still haven’t gotten the vertical rows cut yet.
Did I get all the things done I had planned for the weekend … no…but some on my list I did get to. The blocks that were on the design wall previously are now a finished top. I worked for a couple hours on the sweater I was knitting after I finished sewing the week hours of this morning, go those scones made (and have eaten a fair share of them) 🙂 and started on a new project which I’d be much farther along on if I hadn’t had to spend time searching down the design, then redrawing it, and goofing up some cutting. Even managed to take care of some laundry so I have clothes to wear this week. Read some of the new book I bought and went through the quilt magazines too so all in all a relaxing weekend except for self imposed frustartion that I kept cutting things wrong on this quilt which should have been so easy to make. 🙂
Here’s the design I was fiddling on this afternoon. It was really boring with the blocks in straight sets but I like the design it makes when turned on point and blocks rotated – reminds me of stamps.
