This Is Better November 6, 2012Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
After dinner I decided I would forgo radio and television – after all, I voted this morning and watching the results is not going to change anything. So, I’ve been listening to a book on CD and sewing.
First I prepped the snowmen for the Christmas BOM.
I still need to decide what I’m going to do about the stick arms, but I’ll embroider the faces when I get that far.
Since I had the project box out, I thought I would start sewing some of the blocks together. The first thing I did was re-do one of my earlier blocks.
This poor star. I made it in August 2003 — shortly after I got seriously infected by the quilting bug. Let’s just say I didn’t do HST squares very well.
During the past 9 years my quilting skills have significantly improved – including being able to get the same look with different shapes.
This quilt using coping strips and lots of partial seams – something else I don’t think I could have handled when I started this quilt in 2003.
This is the largest section I have sewn together so far.
After sewing for a couple of hours, my room now feels more ‘creative’. I need to pick fabric for another coping strip, then I can sew the next few blocks together to get all the way across the quilt. Then I’m going to have to get on those last 8 blocks as the rest of the blocks are scattered throughout the rest of the quilt.
