|The two different sets|
So I had seen a pattern over at Cluck Cluck Sew the other day that I liked. I don't buy many patterns because usually I can look at the picture and sort of figure it out but in this case I just wanted someone else to have done all the math for me. Bizzy Kid wasn't the original pattern I saw but it stuck my fancy when I was ordering. I needed to spend time sewing and not looking at inspiration only to find the day gone and a project not started. So on Thursday night I ordered the PDF (another first for me) pattern of Bizzy Kid and read through the instructions. I looked at my fabrics I had pulled and figured out I had what I needed. I went to the LQS on Friday during my lunch break to get some Kona Snow and was hoping to find some charcoal sketch. They appeared to be out of both but lucky for me a willing salesperson and a trip to the back found a bolt of Kona Snow that was not in the inventory in the computer. So Friday night I cut my solid six inch squares and made the larger hourglass blocks. Sunday I spent most of the day sewing and was able to complete the blocks and sew the sets together. The only thing left is to sew the columns together and wait till payday to order some washi tape fabric for the back. I think it will be the perfect fabric for this quilt.
|This is a queen bed with blocks laid out on it. The row hanging off the side will actually move to the other side of the quilt there just wasn't enough room. And this should finish at about a twin size according to the pattern.|
I also got my Loulouthi Tiles quilt back from the long arm so I should have my second finish of the year to share with you soon. Hopefully that will take some of the pressure off. What have you been sewing?
