Raining Cats and Dogs Block 9 Still need to baste 7 items

Still need to baste 7 items

Design board #1 – Is the current status of Block 9.  My goal for last week was to get these all basted down but I wasn’t able to do it.  So I will try to get these done this week.  Here’s a secret – this is right by my work desk so when I’m on a long conference call that doesn’t require a whole lot of work other than me listening – well, I take this baby down and work on this a little.  Don’t tell anyone, okay? It’s just between you and me. 😉

Design Board #2 – I haven’t posted this board in a while mainly because it hadn’t changed until now.  The last (and first) time I posted this board was when I made it.  I pinned an old block that I did years ago when I tried foundation paper piecing.  Until this past weekend I didn’t do anymore with foundation paper piecing.  The bottom block is my second attempt ever with foundation paper piecing and is the practice block from the Lucky Stars BOM. You can see info on the Lucky Stars BOM page to get all the details of it.  But here’s my first attempt with the Practice Block.  This is the 6 1/2″ block.  I had some trouble with it… It was much easier this time around with Elizabeth’s detailed instructions than the first attempt with Foundation Piecing.  I’ll discuss my issues at another post as I’m simply taking a break from work to join the Design Wall linky today. 🙂

Wish I was quilting!
