And with my time at home I was, naturally, in my sewing room. This week I was able to finish the Frozen II quilt, deliver the Fireman's Patch quilt, fix two misplaced blocks in my second Addicted to Scraps quilt and play with a few Idaho Square Dance blocks to create a table runner.
The retired Fireman loved his quilt! When we originally planned the project he talked about it being a gift to his son... when he proudly walked out of our house he was holding it closely and wasn't too sure about giving it away. Lol!
I was pleased with the final product of the Frozen II quilt. You can read about that one here... Frozen II I am certain that some sweet grand-daughter is going to LOVE this one.
You will learn about the misplaced blocks sometime in August... I will sum it up in this "The queen-sized quilt was done and ready to be be photographed for Quiltmaker. And then I saw it! Two blocks that were turned the wrong way! And I couldn't leave them that way." 'Nuf said... you can read about it later when the quilt is revealed.
When I had started the Idaho Square Dance blocks I was intimidated by the number of 1-1/2" squares that were in the block. So I played around with some larger blocks. This is the result...
Using 6-1/2" center squares, 2-1/2" squares and 2-1/2" x 6-1/2" rectangles I quickly had three 14" squares and a table runner ready for quilting... After completing one block and giving the project some consideration I chose to not alter the pattern... but this was a fun, quick project!
My time in the studio for the week is done, but you can bet I will back in there soon... next on the cutting table is denim for file holders for the summer NRA Gunsmithing students. Hey, this girl doesn't just quilt... I am a multi-faceted sewologist!
