We've been going out and about more than usual the last few days. We drove down to Richmond to do a bit of shopping and have a nice lunch out. We stayed masked except when we were actually eating. I enjoyed the time away from home especially since we haven't been going out all that often.
It didn't cause any problems with what I wanted to get done this past week. Yep, I handled all the goals I wanted to.
✅ More sewing on Looking Glass quilt — ready to be laid out & sewn together.
✅ Do first clue of Stop Tossing -- All done
✅ Make more √Red Spider Webs, RSC blocks, and √16 patches -- Hum, I want to get one more RSC block done...
✅ Bind Baby Bricks -- done and turned into guild. See the finish here.
✅ Work on SAHRR -- I added the rest of the border from the star round. I'm behind on the rounds but at least I have an idea for appliqué but I haven't decided yet.
✅ Cut up some smaller scraps -- I churned out some triangles & 2" squares from some small pieces of fabric hanging around.
Here's what I'm going to be doing this week. I won't have as much sewing time because of some activities.
Attend Mid Atlantic Quilt Show
Make more Red Spider blocks
Quilt Jenny’s quilt
Cut pieces for more “cupcake” blocks
Layout Looking Glass Quilt and begin sewing together
Work on SAHRR
Here's what my design wall looks like this week. I'm lucky to have a big wall to put up lots of different projects. (Well, until I put a whole design up!)
Here's a close up of a couple of projects I'm working on. This churn dash was cut out with my 9" Accuquilt Cube. It is 13.5". I read about using my smaller cube to make a bigger block. I have enough of the center cupcake fabric to make at least 9 blocks. I haven't looked to see if I have enough of the go with fabrics. There are a lot of colors in the cupcakes so I can use different combos if I need to.
It's hard to tell but I added the rest of the white for the star border. Hum, it looks like the color changes on that white border. I'm sure it's the same fabric. I wonder if I turned some to the wrong side or is it the lighting? I'm skipping the signature block round. I have an idea for some appliqué. I think I'll add something in the bottom left corner. It may take me a while before I make a final decision. I'm looking forward to seeing what is called for this week. I'd like to get the top done by the end of the month but that my not happen.
