I finally caught up with the Temecula Quilt Co Minis. It took me a few practic pieces to get my needle set in the right spot to make those 36-patch blocks come out to the correct size. I was going to wait and see how they work in the finished piece and then maybe go with something different, but we have to exercise and stretch our skills. Working tiny does that and I am always up for a challenge.
Monday's block was a bit of a relief after the stress of the 36's. I am getting curious about how this is all going to come together. I love each little block in itself.
The latest temperature rosette. These are coming together with scraps, too. I throw a few colors of the ranges we are in into the shoe box tote with my papers, needle, thread, etc.... So not every 'same' temp is made with the same fabric scrap - it's just what is in the tote and I feel represents the day. 78,81,78,77,80,76,76
And my newest mini project is being worked out of my scrap bag hooked by the machine. My bits that get snipped off - tiny 'orts'. I don't need anything too wide or too big, so some of these are getting a chance at being into a project.
Tiny Pineapple Blocks in progress. Slow and steady with these and I hope by the weekend this little piece will be done. The worse part will be picking all the papers out!
