Sunday Stash and Quiltathon Report
I went to the Quilt shop and spent the rest of money given to me as Christmas gifts. I bought a Hello Betty Layer Cake, a little cupcake, Happy Campers Charm pack and a yard of White on White for the block exchange with my friends. I also needed more foundation paper for the Civil war Diary Quilt I am making.
I am stuffing my tote to overflowing. I think I have about 1.25 totes. NOW I need to sew and only buy for the backing and borders. You know, I have never met a charm pack, layer cake, jelly roll or cup cake that I didn't like!!
I have been home for my three day weekend. I sewed 4 CVDQ blocks. I found that all this paper piecing makes my neck and back hurt. I will start on easy blocks for my exchange with local friends ( see link in corner) -today to keep the tasks from stressing my neck.
The easiest block I had to sew each piece three times and I threw out one disaster. Why?????????????????? Done, not perfect.
