Double Disappearing Nine Patch Blocks
I bought sashing material -- and not the color that I expected. What a surprise! I pulled a bolt of yellow that I liked, but the staff at the shop brought out another fabric that I liked it better (I'll show it on Saturday). They oohed and ahhed over my blocks and one patron was impressed with the little itty-bitty squares.
I spent the weekend piecing and quilting. I was too chicken to try stipple quilting it - so I stitched-in-the-ditch. It was not a great choice: in addition to the quilting making me go cross-eyed, the fabric jumped under the presser foot because of the many seams. I'm glad there wasn't much to quilt. I have a new appreciation for the mini quilts entered into the Blogger's Quilt Festival.
I recently found out about Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River. It's kind of a here's-what-I'm-making show and tell. Be sure to check out the other neat quilts and crafts that people are creating.
