I'm still working away on my scrappy Modern Crosses quilt. There should be more to show, but I ran into a little snag, called my brain.
As I mentioned before, these blocks are strip pieced. Sew your blocks to a strip, cut apart, press and sew onto the next strip. Easy. Right. I had about 10 blocks completed. I was on a roll. It was like driving on the Autobahn. Foot pedal to the floor , my Husqvarna purring like a Maserati, I was just starting a new group of 17, had them pressed and ready for the next strip. They looked like this.
One print, and two white ones. Except there's a slight problem. It should look like this.....
One white, and two prints. Aaaaaaagh! 64 of them wrong! All sewn to the white strip, not the print. Way. To Go. Lynne. Meet my new best friend......
I turned off my sports car sewing machine, unplugged the iron and left the room. Back to that later.
O k, let's look at something fun now. I just found this when I was going through my crap scrap bins. It was a Christmas present from a couple years back.
It's a Moda Bakeshop sampler of 12 different fabric lines. In cute little 2.5 inch charm packs!!
Finding it was like getting a present all over again!
Should I sew them together like a postage stamp quilt? Or use one of the patterns from the book
that came with it?
They look so pretty nestled in their little box, I almost hate to take them apart. I think that's why I never made anything with them. Maybe this is the year. Or maybe I'll just stare at them a while longer.
