Yes, I do sound like a Saturday Night Live sketch. But it does describe this post pretty well, so…
Saturday was football sewing day. I am including the first picture because it shows very well the color of the star points. I know that they look black in many of the other pictures, but they are, in fact, dark purple.
And, yes, I do think that sewing the Y seams is probably more difficult than paper piecing, but I still want to do it this way!
After the game, I also got into the sewing room to cut triangles for the 2012 Designer Mystery BOM blocks. And Sunday evening I sewed these to stripes to them. They are unpressed in this picture so you are looking at the wrong side of the stripey fabric. Hopefully I will get them pressed tonight and start sewing them to the blocks.
I have also been going through old magazines, tearing out pages and putting them into notebooks. I am saving special editions of some magazines, but for the most part I am not keeping whole magazines. So far I have gone through all my American Quilter, Quilter’s Newsletter, McCall’s Quilting, Fons and Porter, Easy Quilts, and American Patchwork and Quilting magazines. Yes, this does mean that I’m in the home stretch now!
What have you been up to?
