WIP Wednesday 1/29/14

This has been a sewing week for me.  At least most days.

Let me start out by showing my 5 blocks for January in the Goodnight Irene sew along, which is hosted by Terry's Treasures.   See the button on the right for more information and to click over.  There is a linky on her sidebar with the progress of others who are sewing along.

The first 16 patch that I did, I worked in rows.  The other 2 I worked first into 4 patches and then together.  This works out so much better for me as I am then able to square each 4 patch to 4 inches before sewing them together.

Now let me tell you that my pre-cut smaller squares were 2 1/4 instead of 2 1/2, so my squares for the other blocks are 4 inches instead of 4 1/2 inches.

I've also not decided yet if I am going to stop at 5 rows of 5 or make this one larger.


Next up is the log cabin blocks that I am working on.  92 of them at a time, 1 strip at a time is taking some time to get done.  Also, I keep running out of what I cut for strips and having to dig in my stash to find something else.
See, I cut the strips from what I had and then divided those into envelopes marked for what round.  It's just taking a lot more fabric than I thought. 
I'm on the 1st 'round' of the darker side.
 `Here we are to my progress on the applique bunny quilt.  I'm a little disappointed on just how small this is going to turn out.  It will have to be for a child, or a nice lap quilt.  Months and months and months of working on this one.  2nd row of 5 is together.








Now, I have joined in on the 2014 Project UFO and NewFO sponsored by Joanie's Trendy Quilts.

  2. You have had a productive week Marsha. I do hope you enjoy making a hexie table runner orquilt too. I love having a small hand project on the go, it's so easy to take along to appointments or on holidays.
