It's hard to believe that it is already Wednesday again already. I made some great progress on a few things this week. I finished up the baby quilt top that I was working on thanks to some unexpected time on Friday afternoon.
Then I decided that I was going to start knocking some of those WIP's off my list. I looked through my pile and decided that it was about time I finish up my Sunny Trails quilt. I started this quilt back in January of 2012 and after sewing up 15 of the 20 required 16 patch squares I stalled. Maybe because cutting fabric is my least favorite part of the process. However, when I looked at my stacks of half finished projects I thought it was about time I finished this one up. I quickly sewed up the 5 remaining 16 patch blocks.
After that it was simple enough to cut the strips from the solids and after a night of TV watching I had the lines drawn on the backs of the solid yellow and gray squares. Now that I have all of the smaller parts done it is just a matter of getting the blocks sewn together.
I managed to make just one of these blocks this week which turned out to be a blessing. I have really paid attention to making sure that the text prints are all running the same way. The instructions call for making 20 blocks and then laying them out in a 4 by 5 layout. But as I was looking at the layout again last night after finishing the first block I realized that every other block is turned. So I need to adjust the position of the text in those blocks to account for that. It makes a ton of sense but had I just made all 20 of my blocks before laying them out as I had planned to do I would have had text going all sorts of crazy ways.
Be sure to head over to Lee's to see what everyone else is up to on WIP Wednesday.
