No FOs this week, but I’ve been getting stuff done. I sewing 4 QALs at the moment, trying to stay up with them is filling my days, when I am not taking Hubster to have kidney stones removed. LOL!
The longest running QAL is the Moda Blockheads 3 version. I’ve subbed blocks when I didn’t care for the designer blocks, so not all of these are true to the QAL.
The most intense QAL is with Edyta Sitar at Laundry Basket Quilts. I’m using yardage and scraps I cobbled together.
After Day 7 I had 48 blocks
To make 4 corners like this
The calmest QAL is the Round Robin with Quilting Gail. She gives us clues to add rounds to our orphan block. Here is my progress on that.
And the last QAL I am doing got started yesterday, Willow by Gigi’s Thimble. My fabric pull and mock up.
You would think that with most of these being 6.5″ blocks they would go fast. Au contraire, not! They are just as intense, if not more, than a 12″ block. The seams may be shorter, the cutting and sewing is not much quicker. But it is good to take my mind off of the debacle that is our politics at the moment. I am ready, once again, to throw them all out. A friend suggested we send a Kindergarten teacher to whip the politicians into order! I am not so sure she isn’t spot on. How sad that the people we elect don’t really seem to care about us in return. SMH, it’s sad, just sad.
If you are a small business person, or know someone who is, or an employee of one, I am praying for all of you!! EVERY. NIGHT!
