This block was so cute I had to make it right away. #76 of the Splendid Sampler blocks - not that I'm that far along. I think I'm missing about 20. As for scraps, let me show you what I think
I am rethinking what to do with scraps. The above will be for any collage and mosaic quilts I may want to make. Anything else will be leftovers and I hope to deal with them as I create them instead of stuffing another bag with fabric.
Now here's a recent WIP. I finally decided how I was going to handle the on point block to form a rectangle. First step:
I made this by using the exploding block in Jenny Doan's method. Next I have to cut it (scary part) to make it into a thinner shape.
On an older WIP - am quilting the baby quilt with the same thread front and back and it stands out in the back! I tried a lot of threads and nothing looked right on both sides. So yes, it's going to look different. What color would you have used?
Now here's the front. You can see why there are circles on the back. Yes, the starts and stops show (but their aren't too many) as do the wobbles and bumps, but the stitching looks nice. Three more sections to do and I can start binding it.
So what are you up to these days? Anything quilty? I'd like to know about other stuff too. It will qualify for the giveaway. This week I'm back to offering a quilting book of your choice of three. I'll send you an email asking for your preference as to quilty subject. Usual guidelines apply: Leave me a comment for one chance. Link your eye candy for another (link button below). Follow me and let me know for a third. Remember if you don't have a blog, you can always post a photo from a photo hosting service. Please be sure there is some way for me to contact you. Ends next Thursday, midnight. I'll be linking to several parties. See tab above. I'll post this week's winner Sunday. Blessings!
