For the last couple of months the only sewing I’ve done is to cut off and hem my great nephew’s baseball pants. I’ve been in a crazy 'don’t want to do anything' funk but I hope I’m coming out of it now that Spring is here.
Today I’m working on paper piecing block #19, The Old Maid’s Ramble, of Barbara Brackman’s Grandmother’s Choice block of the month. You will understand why I chose to paper piece this one when you see the one made using the rotary cutting instructions.
Half square triangles turned the wrong way. A larger dark triangle placed wrong. Block unsquare. And oh those crazy bias edges to deal with. Yuck. I vow to get the new block finished tonight!
I am way behind on the Grandmother’s Choice blocks. Chances are I won’t make them all because I plan to set them in a vertical stripy style similar to this one found on Lone Star House of Quilts’ blog. But that plan may change. It’s still early.
Hope each of you have a wonderful, productive, fun weekend. In the meantime, may your bobbins always be full.
