I'm catching up slowly! I had some much easier, and therefore quicker ones recently so I cracked on with a few. Where there are odd shapes and triangles, I have been continuing with the templates, and I seem to be getting quite good results with them. They are slow to cut, but I'm slow anyway, faffing about getting them straight, square and accurate, so I don't think I lose much time. So here they are
Numbers 18 (Century of Progress), 51 Hovering Birds, 58 mothers Dream, 77 Seasons, 1 Attic Windows and 30 End of the Day.
I'm really pleased with these 6, and the new fabrics I got are just super. I think I need some yellow now though. Century of Progress (middle top) meets fairly well in the middle, but it is about 3/4 inch thick! ANy tips on how to make this knot of seams in the middle lie a bit better. I have also started to iron the seams to one side rather than open, which makes it easier to line up, much easier, but I don't like the step it leaves on the front of the seam. Will this lie down better when it's quilted?
And here are the 12 I've done so far
I have to admit that they aren't all 6.5" - A lot are 6.25 which I suppose doesn't matter too much as long as I can make them all 6.25"
The quilt-along is on week 9 so I'm catching up. Not that it matters that much really. How's everyone else getting along?
