|3.5" Quilt -Coaster|
|3.5" Snowball Blocks for Border|
The snowball blocks themselves actually turned out really well. Being a bit oversized allowed me to square them up at 1/4" offsets from the points of the center fabric, which was better than trying to guess at an edge. See I even added a pack of needles for reference. Boy I hope they look good with those 18" Dresden Plate Blocks! I haven't squared up the main quilt yet and for that matter my folded border will need ironed with whatever new iron I pick before I can progress very far with these. I thought I might go ahead and sew a block to one end of each of the lighting bolt fabric strips, as it seems like it will save time later.
On a different note, remember your visit to my sewing room yesterday? When you came face to face with a glaring Tiny? Well I thought I'd post this picture to balance the other one out. Now tell me how can you scat a cat clearly so relaxed! I wish I could sleep that good! And for the record she knows we can't resist her beautiful white belly and uses it against us regularly.
Were you wondering about Patisserie? Well this is it's current fight. The fusible didn't hold here and ended up with the quilt back sewed to itself. Luckily the stitches picked out without to much trouble.
