On this spring like day I want to share my progress this week , I am linking up with the Needle and Thread Network . Let me see , I have been busy this past week , I started another new project , shhh , don't tell anyone ;-) it was too cute not to start right away and it will be perfect for Valentines day although once this gets hung up it will be up for a while , I love the colors.
Then I also felt it was time to tackle the Stay at Home RR that I am taking part in with Sunny of Quilting Dreams . I measured my top so far and realized that neither 4 nor 6 would divide evenly into 34 so another spacer was needed so I cut 4 strips at 1.25" so the final measurement of the top would be 36" ,I have two sides sewn on , why not four you say , well I took this with me this morning for my sewing sessions and wouldn't you know I left the remainder of the fabric home and well I cut the piece too short so for piece number three , didn't allow for the piece I just had sewn on , I know kind of dumb . Not to worry I had plenty to keep me busy , I have to surround this block with either pinwheels or hourglass blocks and since I had seen a really neat tutorial on the Missouri Quilt Co. I tried that for making the pinwheels . I did manage to sew and cut all that I had with me I will need to sew a few more as I am making them at the 4" instead of the 6" therefore I need more . Here is my pile so far ....
House on the Side of the Hill , I have all of the applique done on the house and the base and trunk of the tree and my leaves are cut but not yet sewn on , this is fun , maybe not cutting around 100 leaves but the rest was fun ;-) I have also printed off the pattern for the BOM on Raspberry Rabbits , another great wool project but so far have not gotten started .
So that is it for me this week , plenty to keep me occupied for sure , be sure to check out the Needle and Thread Network , there is so much talent out there . Thanks for the visit and have a great week,
