Oh, it can be so easy to do.
What's taken my attention?
The One block Wednesday SAL
designed by Temecula Quilt Co.
I've been finding bits and pieces
of fabrics, cutting the pieces, and
sewing these simple blocks.
The instructions are very good and
are designed for a faster approach, but
rather than making multiples of the same
combinations, I've been cutting individual blocks
from lots of different fabric scraps.
Much more time consuming,
but more to my liking.
To make the size quilt that
Sharon at Temecula Quilt Co. suggests
would require 360 blocks,
180 light and 180 dark.
The SAL has you make only 12 blocks
I've veered off here too. I'm sewing as many blocks
as I get cut during the week.
The one thing that I've been very careful
to do is to press the diagonal seams
always towards the dark.
the seams to mesh when I'm sewing blocks
side by side.
Well, I might have gotten sidetracked from other projects,
but I'm having great fun playing with scraps,
sewing on my featherweight,
and enjoying the process.
I hope you might get sidetracked sometime soon.
Let us know where it sends you.
We could use your help!
I've also been busy, online,
voting for my school teacher daughter, Jessica Wolfe,
who was nominated for
"Northern Colorado's Tuesday Teacher Award".
It's quite the honor and there's a $500 award
for the school. What school couldn't use that!
If you have a moment and feel inclined,
here's a couple link to some local radio stations
where you could add a vote or two for her.
You can vote on each link.
Just scroll down until
you see the place to "vote now".
Until Next Time-
