Design Wall Monday
I have sewn many blocks over the past week. I will showcase the Farmer's Wife blocks tomorrow on Tiny Tuesday, so I hope you will come back then and see how I am doing.
Progress on my Aunt's quilt
attempt one at a variation block not loving it -from scraps
Currently, I have been working on a variation of a tree quilt I am making for my Aunt. I haven't achieved success but I am getting closer to a block pattern that is use able. I don't know about you but I won't do a block that EQ works out to be 4 3/8 of an inch or 2 1/8... I trying to find more realistic measurement that make a block that is square!!
I have a quilt of my own on the long arm frame and it will be done this week, feels good to have a "no pressure" quilt of my own design. I have several more to quilt during the post holiday slow down in the long arm business. The bad news means more binding to do, I still do them by hand because I like the results best. Do they have any finger yoga out there? I better get those joints loosened up and ready to go.
By the way the second attempt at the beard head hat that I am knitting for my son is going much better.
