How can a week pass by so quickly? Especially when I have to look back and wonder what I did.
I was sidetracked this week by making the Disappearing Pinwheel block by Missouri Star Quilt Company. A mistake challenged me to make alternating blocks. The top is pieced and I plan to write details on what I did and why.
I made more progress on Scrapitude, my current leader/ender project. I also spent time chain-piecing this when I only had a few moments to sew and no time to think about where I was with other projects. As a result I made quite a bit of progress on this.
Another sidetrack, sample name badges for sewing club, details on the technique are here.
I finished the border and pieced the backing for these two quilts. They are in my queue for quilting. This is still on my long arm, I am about 1/2 done on this. I have switched up the design a bit. Many of the seams were not very stable so I am doing a curvy stitch to reinforce them and I am also practicing stitching without the stitch regulator.
I decided to see what it would look like if I outlined the lettering on my whole cloth quilt with more stitching. It makes a huge difference. One letter down, 6 to go. I hope I don’t open a can a worms and decide the entire quilt needs to be stitched again.
Lastly, I did my part for the economy and visited my local quilt shop, Show Me Quilting, to take advantage of 20% off on bolt fabric. No plans yet, just ideas with no clear direction floating in my head.
I seemed to have a lot of distractions this week, but again when I look back, I can see I accomplished more than I thought.
Did your sewing take you down a rabbit trail this week?
