Three of my finished blocks. Yes, I really am done with all of them, but do you really want me to take a picture of blocks that are all the same? I didn't think so.
This picture is even more fun! A couple of long pieces, sewn together, very exciting. Actually, as I've said before, I could look at this purple all day, so of course I had to share it again. Plus, I really did finish all of the pieces, and it feels weird not to have them pictured.
I can't wait for the next set of instructions...that come out tomorrow. Guess I won't have to wait long!
Don't forget that I am having a giveaway that ends Friday night at 11:59 pm CST. You can find details here on how to win my newest pattern, Frayed Edges.
I just want to say, I've had these blocks done for a few days, I just couldn't find time to write about them. So yes, I was slightly late, but not as late as it seems. ;) That being said, I am scheduling this post for the 15th, the day the last set of instructions comes out.
I've been keeping all my extras, and I was able to pull these for the center blocks from them. I had to cut a piece for the pink strawberry and green floral, but I'm going to have some extra fabric to play with. Darn.
I love a pile of freshly cut squares.
There are more seams to sew just a thread over from your drawn line. It really does make a difference.
How do you catch your chain piecing? I have a basket that my sewing just falls into as I go so it doesn't hit the floor. I love picking up that basket of pieces.
When sewing pieces together like Flying geese, or Square in a square, I try to always have that piece facing up, so I can see where I am stitching and not lose my point.
I love this medium purple. I am so glad I chose to make this in purple. I think I stayed pretty true to my inspiration photo. You can see that here.
Oh, this purple. I will say it every time I post a picture of it, you just can't see how scrumptious and rich this purple is.
It was an easy cutting job, though, I did have a moment, when I had finished cutting out the dark purple. I had 2 1/2 yards left over. Even if I had purchased extra for binding, there was no way I should have that much left. So that meant, Yvonne was wrong, or my quilt shop had mis-cut.
Who was guilty? ME, of course! I had skipped the first cutting instructions for the color and went right to where the diagram was. This is why you read through instructions again and again, and then one more time, at least, to figure our where you messed up.
There is still plenty of time to join this quilt along. Won't you join us?
Plus, you can make a beautiful roll of binding like this. (I told you I loved this picture.)
