FNSI Recap March 17, 2012Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
Last night the only thing I sewed, was the three seams to finish the center of the Ocean Waves quilt. Then I spent the rest of the evening figuring out how many more pinwheels I needed to make. This box contains hundreds of HST squares of the right size — the are “bonus” triangles from several quilts I’ve made over the past couple of years. When I started Ocean Waves I went through these and pulled everything I thought I could use. A few weeks back I went through the box pulling more HST to get more variety in my quilt, as I ended up with way more black HST than I wanted in the quilt. But last night I came up 42 pinwheels short, so it was back to the box.
I pulled more pink, gold, blue, red, purple and green to add to my mix and still didn’t have enough HST squares to make 42 pinwheels. So, I will be stitching a few more tonight. Perhaps tomorrow I’ll have a border for the quilt.
