So we are almost finished. These are 2 1/2in half square triangles. Pretty simple. I used triangle paper and it went rather quickly. Stay tuned as the next border is .. well...just a little more time consuming. but oh so effective.
Hello to my Tuesday group and all others out there.The famous checkerboard border....what can I say. It is more challenging than it appears, so there is a skill to learn, KEEPING ALL THOSE SEAMS STRAIGHT. It was stripped pieced which makes for easy construction, but prevents a lot of randomness, unless your strip sets are short. The picture is a little off. My wall is next to the window and we had a nice breeze for a while. I hope you guys are starting to sew. It gets more interesting..... Hope to see you at the Long Beach show. Frances
I will try to make this short. My Tues class is...well....lets say....taking a hiatus. We were cut from the budget. So to stay connected, we are doing a by snail mail project. Also known as a mystery.....sort of. This is the first "round". There are 4 more envelopes to go and it is my intent to blog about it. So Hey to my students!! I miss everyone and hope you are staying busy. I love these houses and they were not too difficult. I think I'll cont. with the dots and stripes theme, but you know me. I'll probably change my mind. I promised the blocks would be up by Sunday( like yesterday ), but I think it might still be Sunday somewhere. Anyway, you can thank Beverly, our class baker for reminding me it was Monday in her universe. OK so it wasn't so short.
I find this difficult to believe but I finished the quilt before the baby came. At least I think I did. This is for a student whose baby is due this month. I haven't talked with her in a few weeks so I'll let you know which came first.
