I am putting my effort into Fit To Frame, 2019 UFO, and Kofi, 2021 UFO. Fit To Frame needs a name for those who might have one to suggest. Ten of the 12 blocks are done now with the latest finish of Block 10 (bottom left). This one has to be my favorite. I am already on to Block 7, but we'll leave more information on it for tomorrow.
Kofi's piecing is done. I never could figure out the corners so solid black fabric will suffice and really it does look correct. I have to sew the units together and hope that my pieced border will fit. It shouldn't be too hard to correct if it doesn't. I never heard from Anelie Belden the quilt's designer. I sure hope she's okay.
The last of my sewing this week has been to make a sample and create the instructions for Sweet Apple block. I was introduced to this block at my Mom's Quilter's By the Bay Quilt Guild meeting. My Sunshine Quilt Guild was needing a member to pick up September BOM coordinator. So this fit right in; easy-peasy. It makes into such a cute wall hanging or quilt whether it be for a teacher, a friend, or yourself.
These are the three and I think I'll work on the one with all the leaves next. The Avery Label method made this very easy. I used my Aurifil thread on these blocks and like the results.
I just might be able to finish this project in 2021!
Dad is headed all the way to the century mark this week. It seems so incredible that he continues to be in such great shape. He loves testing his wits with this game show. I'm so happy that I've been able to return to celebrate your birthday with you.
I've been working on Fit to Frame while visiting. I also am sewing down the binding and label on Kringle's Koming that will be given to Greyson tomorrow. Mom had some labels to sew in place that I did too.
Hope your week is as happy as mine will be.
I left Kofi on my Design Wall until I get back. This is the last of my work. I have an email out to Anelie (the designer) to see if she has ever tried to do what I want. Maybe I'll get lucky :)
No change in stats this week... I'm having way too much fun with family hugs =^.^=
This was a good place to take a photo. It is coming along nicely. I was a bit worried about how the center should work with color placement of the blades. I reached a version I liked. What do you think?
I have been trying to get the blades to sit right in the border corners, but after too many to count fails I might just throw in the towel. The pattern wants prairie points to finish and I don't. I did try it but wasn't happy. I want a 6" border with blades. The tricky part that I can't grasp is the corners. It seems so simple...why can't I figure it out?
I have a busy week ahead that involves Southwest Airlines! Look out family this girl is heading East =^.^=
Last week I worked on preparing my "in flight" projects. I'll be heading East soon for a long in the waiting trip to see family and friends.
I am back to Fit to Frame project using this time the Avery Labels. As long as my glasses keep from fogging up with my mask on I should be able to get through a lot of the base applique. Then I'll set up there for the flight home. I am about half way through the blocks. This is a UFO from a previous year...
It may not seem like much was accomplished, but work had me pretty busy. Nothing added or eliminated from my stash count this week. We have Don and Rita coming for the night and two days this weekend. We will be staying in. Spaghetti and fixings on Saturday for dinner. Baby backs and chicken thighs with jasmine rice on Sunday. We will even run the dishwasher!
This is how it was left on Sunday. I hade all the leaves sewn down only needing seven berries to finish up. Time got against me and had to call it quits for the day around 9:45pm. Tuesday had me at the work site and getting to bed early is a must on these days.
Now that Mistletoe is done...what next you ask? I love my light box. I used it so much during Mistletoe that I couldn't just put it back in it's box. I'll be preparing the units for Fit to Frame (2019 UFO). Two of the remaining six are up for preparing for my trip East. A girl can't keep her hands idle...
These are the fabrics I'll be using. Once these are prepared for my travel companions...Kofi (2021 UFO) is next to work on.
Of course I can't share too much! This project will have me busy at my machine for awhile. Progress to show as days go on. Return to see what's happening with Kofi on Sunday with my post. Take care and have a beautiful week =^.^=
I've been working on this every day. Getting a bit closer to finishing the applique. This was taken on Friday and since then I've made a lot of progress.
No changes to stash this week...no further in the red :) Hope you have a wonderful day. If you have time check out Mistletoe tomorrow on my Design Wall Monday post.
