My knitting WIPs haven’t changed much but in the sewing department I have been busy. I made 6 blocks for a new mystery I am following along with in a FB group. I just grabbed some scraps and yardage pieces, so who knows how far I can get with this. But it’s just for fun. the blocks are 3.5″ unfinished.
I also got the blocks finished for October so it was just a matter of putting on sashings and cornerstones. The borders were easy compared to all those small pieces!. I have taken my time on this one, not to be precise, but because it’s so small and I have trouble handling these pieces. LOL
The quilting of this will be a bear. The star centers are 1.5″ finished. The sashing and cornerstones are .5″ finished. There are a lot of bulky seams in this piece that butt right up to their neighbor! Not sure just yet how I will proceed, but the top when done will be bound in the black fabric. I am so pleased you cannot see the lost points, mis-aligned seams, or general unevenness of this piece. LOL! But I really don’t care to make it perfect, just done is what I am going for. Most people will never even see it hanging on my sewing room wall.
Last week I ran this poll seeking help to decide how to proceed with my Good Fortune Mystery called Patriotic Duty. Thank you for your votes! The overwhelming majority liked the no brown option, which I really like. But since I have the brown pieces already made, and I still like the brown and red together, I am going with the 2nd favorite, less brown with red 4 patches added. Truth be told, I am just not willing to rip and redo all those red 4 patch blocks! LOL Now I need to just put it aside and wait until my UFO challenge draws its number. Maybe separation will yield a different direction?
So, what are you WIPping with this week? Join in the fun with the link parties below.
