I have made it a habit to post on Sundays too. That has kept me on track for the Dresden Plate Project. I like having the 'push' to do a little bit, each weekend. By December, I might even have a quilt top done!
At one point, this weekend, my table had exploded in fabric bits:
I had finished block four of the Folk Art Quilt on Friday night:
Part of that fabric explosion was getting block five ready to go:
I also got the July block rough cut for the My Favorite Things BOM:
I started sewing together my Dresden Plates:
Memories of Grandmother's Fan quilts came to mind as I started. I recalled why I don't do this block more often. It is a challenge to make them come out right!
I need to be even more careful when I cut out the blades. Accuracy in cutting will make for a nicer looking plate. I did manage to get two done though:
The blue and white square fabrics are the sashing/border pieces for the My Favorite Things BOM.
We had a nice 4th of July weekend. It was just family, good food, and sewing! hahahaha I hope you enjoyed your weekend too. Till next time, Happy Sewing Y'all!
