WIP Wednesday – Primitive Reproductions


DSC_0243I absolutely love this fabric.  I’m not too crazy about the partridge with the pear, but it is seasonal, so I can make allowances.  I bought 4 charm packs and some yardage of  Seasonal LIttle Gatherings by Primitive Gatherings from my favourite quilt store in Fort St. John.  I am doing my  utmost to be very deliberate in the construction of this quilt.  Already I have made a couple goofs and am upset with myself.  I wanted all the pieces with parallel lines to go in the same direction.  Third block, fail!  Sigh.

To this point the planned layout is as shown.  Once I took the picture and it presented as quartered snowballs rather than bow ties has me second guessing the plan.  Either way, I am going to be snuggly and warm on the couch with this new lap quilt.

Mark 8:18  Do you have eyes, and fail to see? Do you have ears, and fail to hear? And do you not remember?

Two Strips Forward, One Strip Back


DSC_0816I brought the “Fruits of the Spirit”, or as I learned today, “Chinese Coins” quilt down to the church to sandwich.  Wouldn’t you know it?  The wide borders won’t lay flat.  I’ll have to take them off, find out where I made an error in squaring up the top, repair that, then sew them back on.  My chore for this evening since the flannel back and the batting are occupying the table in the church basement and I want to get this together before someone else needs the space.  (Untaping the back from the table is not an option … when you take into account how I hate to negate two steps forward!)

ARGG!
