I’ve set Celtic Solstice aside for a bit. Step 5 took way too long but it’s done now. Catching up with my long time UFO, Razzle, in the meantime…
Razzle is made up of corduroy fabric. I love the fabric. It’s so fun and soft! But not so fun to piece with. There is a LOT of lint and fuzz and I have to clean my sewing machine a lot.
I need 49 of these strips:
Most of them are still at this stage:
But are hanging out at the pressing station:
I’ll be taking time pressing today and will work on getting the other side of that white strip pieced together to the unit.
Here are the blocks that they will be sashing:
Yup, the last time I worked on this project was May of 2014! Time sure flies…
For those checking in from Freshly Pieced… Thanks for stopping by!
~Here’s to a great week!
Hi, Melanie! Gosh, I love this Razzle fabric. 🙂 That’s going to be a cool quilt with the soft corduroy. Hey – I’m going to answer the email here from your comment on my DOD Americana post. (The email notice for that says no-reply-blogger, so I think if I email-answer it, it won’t get to you?) Tracing my pencil drawing on the newsprint paper with the Sharpie bled through the newsprint nicely for my purpose. I had scrap paper underneath so it wouldn’t also get on my cutting mat. There wasn’t a whole lot on that scrap paper. When I then flipped the newsprint over and traced the bleed-through lines onto some fusible, I did not have any transference of the Sharpie ink. It had dried for a couple hours, though, while we went to the movies.
Thanks Lynette for answering my question. I’ll have to try this some time. 🙂
Wow, that’s been a while! I really look forward to seeing this come together. I like the brightness of it all.
I do too! As I get projects to the quilting line, I’ll be pulling old UFOs out. I can’t believe how much time has passed since I last touched some of these!
