Happy Sunday! Yesterday a couple of quilty friends and I trekked it over to Orange to check out a quilter’s garage sale. I did not come home with fabric! 🙂 Surprise! I did come home with some notions that I’ve been keeping an eye out for, buttons, and whole bag of leather, vinyl, and suede! Those will be bags one day. 🙂
The fabric stash:
- Used since last time: 0 yards
- Used year to date: 27.5 yards
- Added since last time: 0 yards
- Added year to Date: 112 yards
- Net ADDED for 2017: 84.5 yards
Slow Stitching Sunday
And for Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy at Kathy Quilts…
I did a little bit of work on Block 8 for A Rainbow Garden!
Here’s where I was last time:
Here I am now:
I do not usually baste my pieces down but the pieces were so fiddly and for some reason, this time around I was annoyed at having to re-adjust my pieces every time I worked on this project. I usually do not mind but this time around it just kept looking funny to me and I would spend too much time adjusting and re-adjusting. I’m hoping that the pieces will stay in place now but can still be moderately fiddled with when I get to a spot needing fiddling.

I think that’s my favorite block so far.
This block is going to be sweet. I love the flower shapes. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!
Thanks Cynthia! 🙂
I baste all my pieces down, it seems to keep the frustration from flaring up. Lovely little block.
I guess it depends on my mood and the project. Sometimes I feel like it and sometimes I don’t. 🙂
Congrats on visiting the sale and leaving without fabric! Cute wool work that you’re doing.
Thanks Jennifer! 🙂
Nothing added – that’s a good sign. I like block 8. Sometimes we have to change horses in mid-stream, and basting this one seems like a good plan to me.
Thanks Susan! I think that’s why we learn different techniques so we can use the best ones for a given project or mood! 🙂
Congrats on not adding to the stash during your trip. Hope you’ve got the worst of the fiddly stuff done.
Thank you Kate! 🙂
