which Moda Bakeshop recipe I'm cooking up. I'm sewing every opportunity I get....
Got my pedal to the metal chaining pieces. That's no mean feat for me because chaining has a tendency to really confuse me. I start off determined to concentrate really hard but somehow I always end up in a guddle (mess).
So... I decided to cut myself some slack and chain in small batches so I do have a few complete blocks.
It's good to have something straightforward and relaxing to work on
and the more I piece the prettier it gets. It was a good choice to get me back in the saddle.
Another project making a welcome return is this....
yes... it is blocks 2/3 of Vignette and it's still a WIP but I'm back to working on it too. Notice the magnifying lamp.... it's my new best friend. I can't believe the difference it's making to my stitching. Now that I can actually see what I'm doing.... I'm doing it much faster!
OK... I have a hot date with the TV and this.......
an evening of American Major League Baseball. I'm a total addict. I was lucky enough to go to a Mariners game in Seattle a few years ago and that was me.... hooked. Who'd have thought...... I even sing the song at the 7th inning stretch!! Wonder if I can persuade Mac to have Hot Dogs for supper......
Till next time.....
I LOVE nine patch blocks/quilts and I'm looking foreward to see yours - the fabric you're using is gorgeous!
Nice new project, it's looking good. I hope the right team one the baseball! I'm so happy to hear that guddle is a real word! My Mum always used it and now I tell my kids their rooms are a guddle and to tidy them up - they and hubby look at me like I'm talking a foreign language. But maybe I am....LOL
Oops I think that should have been WON the baseball! Looks like it's going to be a long day. lol
I like what I see!! Those colours are great! Baseball?? Have fun! Not my thing! DH loves it though! Hope the hot dogs went down a treat! Vignette... you're putting me to shame Josie... STOP IT! I still haven't managed to start 2/3 yet!
It looks so pretty. Can't wait to see more. Great to see that you have also reconnected with Vignette Block 2/3. You will be making huge progress before you know it.
I love the quilt that your working on!! Both the pattern and the fabric. Glad to know you enjoy our baseball. I grew up watching the Atlanta Braves :)
I have no idea what project you're working on, but I would have bribed you with something to get my hands on your Tula Pink fabric. I am in the middle of making a quilt for my sister using nothing but Tula Pink fabric from 4 of her design lines but really wanted a second charm pack of Full Moon Forest to complete the top. Be sure to show us the finished project. Thanks!
Ohhh its gorgeous - I'm sure I need some, whatever it is! I'm with you on chain piecing - if I get too carried away I get muddled. Love the guddle word - and others you pop into your conversation now and again. My grandmother was born in Scotland but she didn't use interesting words like that!!
I just love that fabric Josie... much more than I do the baseball!! And I also love the new Scottish word!! Guddle...
Just what I needed - a reminder of the Vignette quilt! It will be my next long-term project when I have finished Lynette Andersons Christmas Fun button Club quilt. I love the colours you have chosen :)
I love the look of the new quilt, and I'm with you, I only do little bits of chain piecing.
Love your fabrics and chain piecing is the way to go...lots of progress.
