Again I have my hands in too many pots at the moment. First I'd like to share what I did take down from the design wall this morning and that was the UFO I found. the split nine patch.
It wasn't much to put together seeing how I had all the fabric and I just need to cut out that setting triangles and the sashing, just needed to assemble. Did that yesterday and it stayed up on the wall until this morning, then I took it down.
Then I put up another UFO.
I would like to get done before the end of the year and that is my chicken scratch blocks that I have been working on since I believe 1990.
I have had them completed for at least a couple years but just put them away and hadn't done anything with them it's about time I do something with them.
I want to put them on point but the stars are not a perfect square so when I first attempt at it a while back I wasn't happy with what I was looking at. But time has passed and you know what it will be just fine.
So on point they will, be I just need to trim them down at the corners triangles to each block and then add the sashing that I want to use.
The natural darker color strip I have on the wall will be the setting triangles for the blocks
The lighter which is also a very small plaid will be the sashing.
I also have some more of the green to be the border.
Have the fabric needed a just a matter of doing it now
I also am working on month 6 for the shops BOM's Farmer's Wife Sampler of the 1930's
I get the blocks ahead of time to make the store sample and then also check the fabric requirements and make sure that there's enough fabric.
As you can tell this block is missing a piece. Just a small smidgen of the green fabric is needed 1 1/2 x 4 1/2 but there just wasn't enough left over from the piece given.
I have enough for this block. But I did not have enough for another block using the same fabrics that was going to be paper pieced. I didn't get enough blue. This is putting me a little behind on getting these blocks done today. I'm going to need to go by the quilt shop tomorrow and pick up the fabric. I don't have any of this fabric in my stash, otherwise I would just use it.
