I wish I had more to show for my week of sewing. Unfortunately my Holy Toledo top has been totally side-tracked. So much so,it didn’t even get unpacked from our trip. I have been sewing, just not on it.
Instead I have been working on two commissioned quilts. One of which I received the request while I was travelling and came with a deadline, first week of December. Yikes.
The first one is a black and grey based on the MSQC’s tutorial for Big Star.
Nice big blocks, going together fast. I just need to cut more of the black corner squares to finish the rest of the blocks.
For the second one I went to Missouri Star's Youtube videos again for another big block that would sew up quickly. And came up with the Quatrefoil pattern. Here are the two test blocks I did to show the client what it will look like.
White sashing goes between the rows,with a green cornerstone that makes the purple into a nine-patch and really looks cool.
When she contacted me for this, I was in N.S. and figured I could pick up the fabric at Mardens on my way home. However, she didn’t get back to me with the colours until after I had already left Maine. So I took a chance and picked up a couple of yards of things I thought would work. Nope, the colours she came back with were green and purple and not florals.
Now what to do with all this fabric??
Now to link up with Jo over at the Country Junction and share my lack of progress. Which is the best part of this adventure, because it has allowed me to connect up with some great people and reconnect with retreaters from the fantastic Iowa retreat. It was so great to hear from them after last week’s post.
