|My calculations told me I needed 10 FQs, so I chose some bright|
colors and a White w/ Black Polka dots and set off to make a
6" block checkerboard with bright colors and White squares.
|Before sewing I always make sure my blocks are properly squared|
and match in size
|My favorite way to sew... Chain sewing, like chain smoking,|
only MUCH Better for you!
|Right off the machine, still attached by a thread...|
|IRON the seams toward the colored squares... I don't want any seams|
showing behind that white....
|Another view of the seams sewn toward the color.|
|A short search it was, the kitty had stolen a row of blocks. When I|
tried to take her photo, however, she dropped her loot and ran!
|So, here she is in all of her colorful glory, all 36x54 inches of her.|
Now, I'm wondering if I should just make this the front and the
Bargello the back, but then I decided the Bargello should be
|So, I sewed the two halves of the barello together and laid it out on|
the back of the quilt to insure I had adequate clearance, and I did.
|I had three blocks left over, so I decided to make a few pinwheels...|
Although I have no idea why I did, or what I'm going to do with them!
I am going to quilt this soon... I am still messing around in Photoshop to decide exactly what to do with it, but I will definitely post it as soon as I have an idea of what I am going to do.
Of course my wife looked at it and said, "I like the colorful side better!"
Until Next Time,
