I sewed as much as I could on Shelly's 2010 Exchange Block for BAE Systems Quilters. I mentioned in an earlier post the pattern Mississippi Wheel of Fortune that she'll have us each make. The next step of assembly involves a template that unfortunately is at work. The template has markings that are significant when sewing the curved middle portion of the block. The blue and yellow curved pieces will go in the center of the "wheel" and the orange will be the middle. The green/green pinwheel points get cut away. Perhaps you can make it out in the instructions photo.
My next project is one designed by Judy Laquidara called Peaches and Dreams. I've been gathering my orange, yellow, and ecru strips as well as cutting some more for my quilt. I'm starting first on the border blocks. I'm only 14 blocks into the 78 that are needed for the huge 92" x 104" quilt. I'm thinking to make this one smaller. Judy has been wonderful to describe how to easily achieve this. Of course I'm already starting to figure out a "K" name. My thoughts so far are Kantalope and Kream, Kreamed Korn, Kustard, and Kreamsicle. I'll have to see what color stands out to help me decide on a name.. Kreamed Korn is winning at the moment.Here's my report for this "finally" not rainy day in San Diego.
