Ahhhh! where do I start?
well as i mentioned previously all the Block A’s were done for the double irish chain baby quilt!
This morning i went down to sew all the Block B’s
It went really well, as there were only 2 seams per each of the 17 blocks.
In no time at all I was done! trimmed squared etc. checked them out and they should just nest and seams should butt just perfect!
I’ll be done before supper i thought.
I almost didn’t put them up on the design wall……. but thankfully I did! and guess what i saw?
Yep do you see whats wrong with this picture now? **sigh** out of 18 Block A’s the only correct one was the very first one I did, you can see it way up on the upper right hand corner !
Man did i blow this one LOL I put row 1/5 where row 3 should go and vice versa!
Put hey on the plus side i only need to make 17 , not 18 !! AND all the horses were the right way up!!
I have some strip sets leftover that i dug out of the scrap basket, I plan to just remake them totally as the seams that have been fanned would have to be resewn on the ends where the seam was undone. I have enough fabric of the background , but as i was going to Fabricland anyways i got a teeny bit more of the pink and mauve just to be on the safe side.
The seventeen blocks that i made I might see if I will be able to use them for something in volume 2 , set on point, with a sashing.
Yesterday I went off to Vanderhoof to hunt down some fabric for the border on Inlaid Tiles , no success. I also checked the quilt store here but nothing. I gave up looking for a border print pretty quickly and was just trying to find any print at all that would work. NOTHING! Hence the trip to Fabricland today, where i did find a print that i think will work. I havn’t auditioned it with the actual runner yet , and it does introduce a new colour but it might just have to do. I will get a pic maybe tomorrow evening. I am kinda wrapped up with the baby quilt at the moment!
I picked up a new Olfa 6 by 12 inch ruler yesterday, it has the narrow plain black lines that all my square rulers have. I had a 25 % off coupon and I will try and pick up the 6 by 24 one next time i am out there.
I also checked my quilt tops that i have made so far to make sure i still had fabric for borders. I picked up a bit of fabric for one or two of the tops that i needed. I still need some of the charcoal grey fabric for the Shades of Grey quilt top , as they were out . but i might see if i can get some online as i know the manufacturer and design name.
well i am going to go and put supper in the oven and head down to sew strips for Block A ( again) 🙂
catch you on the flip side!
