Today it’s all about the sewing progress, what little there has been. Anthem is the current piecing project and is bringing joy!! I love these fabrics, I am so glad the other fabric I had didn’t work. It forced me to go looking and I found all these fabrics in the clearance section of my not-so-local-shop!! Last I saw they still had the background, hmmm, do I need more? They also had the light blue print in a light red version. So sweet!
1½” HST’s are tiny!!! I still have 24 to trim up. I’m just taking my time and enjoying the fabric as I go. I put 1 block together to check my size and seams. Pretty good, but there’s always room to improve points and intersections. And…..the value shot. I knew the navy and red would be close, in real life it isn’t as mono as the……mono shows. 😆 Although, once you are far enough away, the values will recede into each other more, so it’s a good thing I don’t plan on displaying this from a distance.
The purchase of Nomi was precipitated by a conversation we had at a guild stitch-in. One of the ladies had been browsing a new machine to take to quilting classes. A light bulb went off in my head as I realized I don’t take my machine to sew-ins a lot because it’s so heavy. Maybe I would go more often if I had a lightweight machine. Hello Nomi! Another lady spoke about her extra set of rotary tools for class use. Bingo! So I ordered a small mat, square ruler, small rotary, and new blades for my full size rotaries. The old rotaries had such dull blades cutting was an effort! My rolling case is now stocked with my new and old extras, I am ready to roll.
So, are you ready to roll?
