Still no iron! It was to be delivered last Friday according to the Bed Bath and Beyond website, then Tuesday according to FedEx, now its Thursday. To have a “stop work” on my piecing is really difficult for me – I depend on my piecing to keep me active as short spurts of busy work throughout the day – especially when I have fabric all cut and ready to sew, and those tiny little 3″ blocks to keep up with!
However, I did finally get going on the red thread quilting on the Just Takes 2.
The first pic shows my pretty much standard quilting when I’m not trying to follow a straight line – just a curve from a point to point, and maybe some added loops.
The second picture is what happens when I’ve come up with a quilting idea that just didn’t quite work – the block turned out sort of pushed out of shape as a result – I’ve so far not done any major ripping out on any of this quilting (which is a milestone for me!), but this block may have to be re-done.
And the last pic shows when I’ve successfully come up with a neat motif that just fits right!
Its the end of January! This is when I start thinking only February, then March…then we’ll start to see Spring 🙂
