Scrappy Wednesday


Happy dance that the braided rail fence quilt is now a flimsy!  All those partial seams really were not the bother, just the jigsaw puzzle layout that had to be kept as things went together.  AND those stripes zig and zagging did make the eyes weary.  This was to use up a lot of left over Kona black strips and the collection of solids over time.


You can see we jumped right from that long winter into Summer like weather.  Those are light springy greens - not yellow (not yet).  I started my temperature quilt on Summer Solstice and that is quickly coming back around.  I need to get a row of rosettes stitched down so when I hit that last one, this one is a flimsy.  SARAH is starting another temperature sew along, but I think once is enough for me.

76 - 71 - 76 - 78 - 68 - 76 - 77


The next project to get into the flimsy stage is the black/white brick quilt.  I've decided to go with just a white sash and border rather than a color.  This reminds me of the Harlequin dolls for some reason.


I probably have about 300 1.5" HSTs from the last baggy of blue bits, but I found these to be added.  I'm sure there are more and as I am not sure how I will use them, I will continue to make them up.  I'll chain a bunch as well as use them as leader/enders.  They will surprisingly get done fast using both methods.  I even pull a few to trim down in between other things as breaks.  Ha, who takes a break to trim a mess of HSTs?

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. I really like the rail fence. Maybe not enough to work on all the partial seams. But enough to admire yours from afar. Just a little drulling but no one is looking.

  3. The rail fence looks great. I don't know if you are familiar with licorice allsorts, but that's what your quilt reminds me of.

    Looking forward to seeing your temperatures all together! Today is the 2nd-last day of mine.

  11. I love the rail fence quilt. I can't imagine it looking as special without the black strips. I actually like to trim HSTs more than I like to make them. Maybe, it's because I am so off when making them that trimming them down salvages any mis-sewing.
