Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,
It’s been a busy month for me and I haven’t been able to get as much done as I would have liked. I have however sewn a bit and I’d like to show you.
I’ve been working on the test pattern for Denise @ For the Love of Geese. You should see her Minion quilt. I think it’s the cutest thing. The name of the pattern I’m testing is Nostalgia Twist. Here is where I was the last time we talked about it. And you can see my previous posts here and here.
Since then I’ve been working on the next row of mountain blocks and I’ve finally got them finished. I found these blocks easier than the geese because of the straight lines instead of diagonal ones. Just the middle row was a bit difficult, after that it was a breeze. See the stack of blocks.
I also got them all together and laid them out where they will go on the quilt to get an idea of the look. I’m please with the results so far.
The next blocks I have to make are block in a block. I’ve made a small change to my foundation piecing technique. I have been printing out the blocks on regular printer paper which is stiff and hard to remove so I made an Amazon purchase of newsprint paper that will go through the printer. So I’ve printed my next blocks on this and we will see if I like it.
It’s been tremendously hot over here recently. This weekend I hid indoors with the blinds and curtains closed so to keep it as cool inside as possible. We had to cut grass and I thought I’d keel over at any moment. I can’t wait for Fall to come, but it’s quite some time away.
The linky parties I usually participate in can be found by clicking this link. Please visit them and see what others are up to leave some comments and encouragement. There are many bloggers out there who share their tips, projects, and tutorials to inspire us.
That’s all for now. Thanks for stopping by.
