Hi Everyone and Welcome to My Blog,
As per my blog post here, my courageous goal was to complete two rows on my Nostalgia Twist Quilt. Last week I showed that I had completed the mountain blocks and was on to the next row of square in a square blocks.
I mentioned I purchased some newsprint paper to piece with which is all good. I’m really enjoying. it. I had thought I was getting a good deal on the paper I bought from Amazon for $9, but my lovely quilting friend also pointed out that it is even less expensive at Dick Blick Art Stores for only $3.79 online. Unfortunately, we do not have a store in our state but for those who do nearby I recommend it if you are doing paper piecing. Another friend said it was also available at Office Depot for $5.09 a ream. We do have a couple of Office Depots near me so as soon as I have a chance I will stop in and take a look. I’m not in a hurry though as my purchase should last a while.
I made a big mistake when I printed out the blocks. I forgot to choose no scale in my printer options and it didn’t print them the correct size. Of course, I didn’t realize what I had done until I had all the blocks done and sewed together. When I placed them near the quilt, I have to admit that some unladylike words came out of my mouth. No one was home to hear me so I suppose the only harm was to myself.
So after some marathon sewing these last couple days, I’ve fixed the issue. Low and behold, the fit perfectly. I’m thinking that I could use the incorrect blocks and make a matching pillow. Any how I got the 2 rows done and ready to add to the quilt.
