Busy Saturday and Sunday sewing
Blockapalooza Blocks #9 and #10. Two of mine have finished at 13 1/2 inches instead of 12 1/2. My 1/4" seam must be a little off, but we can make them fit. Who knew I loved machine quilting? This is my try at Cherry House's quiltalong. She taught us a great strategy- use painter's tape (mine was masking) for marking lines. I used 2 tape widths away from each row of itty-bitty squares. So quick and not bulky at all. Ready for binding on Tuesday!
and finally, I was waiting for my tax refund before putting these together, and Friday both State and Federal were in my checking account! They are almost completed birthing kits for Craft Hope- still need to cut string and add receiving blankets. My pregnancy and delivery were so happy and easy, thank you Epidural and C-Section- I can't imagine in a million years being handed one of these as my only help. But, I hope they bless someone in Haiti. They'll be mailed later this week.
