I have been busy but not at sewing the past week
Was able to make a few blocks of the Retro Air-Ship Propeller. If you hadn't read all about earlier this month about how Karen and I are both making. You can see the post here about the pattern and how to get free copy or one to purchase.
I can add here that after writing that post, Deb at Frugal Little Bungalow decided she was going to join in the fun. I think that is wonderful and I think the more the merrier.
Well started out with this block
Now my thoughts were this was going to be a good pattern to use up some of the fat quarters and scraps. Which is what I'm going to do,
Here are the two we decided we would make for the month.
But if know anything about me I sometimes can just stop when I find a good idea.
This is a 1930's pattern and I do have a large collections of 30's reproduction fabric. Which was obvious when it came to moving it out of the sewing room.
Came across a tub of fabric that was pink and turquoise 30's
I like that combo and figured I would make a 30's quilts, well that day is here.
So here are another set for the month.
For the background on these will be the same fabric instead of a variety like the others. I like Kona Cotton Snow when making 30's quilts.
Also want to share what little progress on the Words to Live By
So far I have one side done and half of another.
I think it takes longer to place them like I like then it does to sew them together.
It is a lot of HST.
Getting it done slowly.
