I didn't wanna..instead I worked on Raspberry Swirl which is a Jo's Club quilt. I am am part of the club but I am always working or working on another quilt so I haven't made any of them this year or part of last year for that matter. I am going to be teaching that class this Saturday since the normal teacher had a family emergency so I figured what the heck..I will spend the day doing something different.
So out comes the Jo fabric and sorting and deciding began. I ended up using pinks because I had 9 different ones and I wanted each block to be different and I also had enough for the outside border. I really wanted to do it in the poison greens but I didn't have anything for the border. So off I went. I realized I will need to check out work tomorrow for something for the sashings. I have a fabric that will work but I am not too happy with it. So I am hoping to find something get the top all finished and then quilted and bound (GULP) by Saturday morning.
I might just do it since I don't have a hubsters here this week, but I also have tons of blocks to get crack a lackin on for Sylvia's....does it ever end? I don't think so.
Here is the partial blocks that I was working on. I was chain piecing three at a time and was down to my last three..which would mean I had already done six...well
Does this look off to you? Why after doing so many do I decide that I need to do some creative sewing..not on all of the pieces mind you just some. So out comes the seam ripper and off I go.
Here is a close up of one of the finished blocks. I keep looking at it and personally I think the "spikes" are off in size compared to the rest but the block does come out right.
If I had a lighter background I would have used it but this was all out of my stash and it was the only shirting I had that didn't have blue or black in it or "something just not right". I think it will grow on me.
I only have two quilts up on my Jo's club area so this will be a nice addition. Oh...well now that I remember I do have another quilt top that is Jo's that just needs quilting...hmmm maybe I can find time in the next 100 years to get some of these tops done....well dreaming is allowed right?
For more design walls head on over to Judy's.
I have to work this morning but then that is it. We will have leftovers tonight so I can sew, sew, sew, the night away. Well, unless work kicks my bum.
Have a blessed day everyone.
