Greetings, friends. I’ve been sewing almost every day, so it’s about time I logged what has been under the needle. I find it so relaxing, especially with other stresses that are piling up right now.
First up is the Simply Solids bee. I enjoyed the Spiderwebblock for July for Chelsea, but it took a lot longer than I thought it should have. I had a hard time going completely scrappy, so I started with an aqua-orange theme and added a few others like chartreuse. Eventually I started picking each strip so I wouldn’t have the same colours matching up together at the seams….I think I need to practice improvisation some more. I finished this on the 25th, so a very yellow late night photo before I sent it off.
The good news was that Patti sent out her fabric early, so by using her block as leaders and lenders for the spiderweb block, I finished it on Saturday. Wow, it’s not even August yet! I loved this rolling stone block and her quilt will look fantastic.
I also got back into the Virtual Quilting Bee at Diary of a Quilter for my nephew’s quilt After taking this group shot, I decided that every block needs the dark blue, so I’m not sure what I’ll do with the two light blocks. My daughter had a great time rearranging them.
Linking up to Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story and WIP Wednesday at The Needle and Thread Network.
