What’s On My Design Wall February 11, 2013Posted by Pam in KC in Uncategorized.
Saturday my quilting friends and I got together and worked on this quilt. We each had a job to do. V & I cut the fabric strips Friday night. Then Saturday, I sewed, V cut the pieced blocks and trimmed the signature blocks after T removed the freezer paper. S did the pressing. All the blocks were made by the time they left at 5 and 4 rows sewn together — two of them correctly.
We decided that with the exception of the center row of the quilt which we reserved for T’s family, the rest of the signature blocks could land where they may. So, I just started sewing from my EQ drawing. Except, one block was turned wrong and I didn’t follow the design. Thus the two rows stitched together wrong.
After everyone left I was able to get the blocks sewn together correctly and a few rows sewn together. Some blocks haven’t been returned and T thought a of a few more names she would like to send squares to. I hope we can get this quilt finished before T’s next birthday.
