Yesterday I was sewing together the blocks of my disappearing 9 patch. I was on a roll. When I sew a large quilt I like to put each half together separately. That way I don't have so much weight pulling at it. That plan did not work so well yesterday. Apparently I turned the blocks on each half together differently. So, this afternoon I am going to sit with my friend Sharon and chat while she sews and I rip. She did remind me this morning that I am so good at ripping.Thanks Sharon. LOL Here is the start of the layout.
Yes, it does look rather busy, but it will go under our spread and it will feel good to sleep curled under it. I just wanted to do something with these fabrics and move on to the next project.
This evening I will be doing some slow stitching on my Baltimore block wall hanging. It has been a couple of years since I hand quilted using regular quilting thread. I'm trying to improve my stitches. I am doing about 7 stitches to the inch after watching several hand stitching videos. Here is last night's progress.
Not a good photo,but hope you can get the idea. I also finished my son's wall hanging this past week. I will be sharing a photo as soon as we get it hung on his living room wall.
