When I left you last week I had hoped to have my Pfeffernuse blocks sewn together. Well, that didn’t happen. I went to sew them together and WHAT??? The string blocks were too big. I failed to read the memo and cutting them to size. UGH.
I put them in a pile to work on during nap time one day this week. I often try to do a little project during nap time if everyone sleeps at the same time. Trimming the blocks down will likely take me a couple nap times but that’s okay. It’s something I can do in the kitchen that’s quiet and still allows me to supervise the sleeping little ones.
Well that left me scrambling. I wanted to work on a UFO. I’m committed to these UFOs and know that once I do nothing on them for a week, I’ll let them fall to the wayside and that’s definitely not what I want…so what to do??
Well I have TWO finished Bonnie Hunter UFOs that are finished-just not quilted. Well that was an easy decision…load a quilt. Now, Wonky Wishes or Winston Ways? I ended up picking Winston Ways. Here’s the truth why I picked that one. I already had a big piece of fabric to use for the backing set aside…I don’t know I am backing Wonky Wishes with.
I measured and got a backing made. I loaded the quilt. Then it was time to pick thread….What would you have picked?
I ended up with the warm brown to the right. I use brown a lot on quilts like this. I sometimes blends better than anything else.
From there I started in. I’m on bobbin #2 and ready to roll the quilt for the first time. Wow…I love this quilt. What do you think?
I’m a 4 patch lover…what can say? Anything 4 patch makes me happy…so very happy. I think the only other thing that would be better would be all polka dot fabric and 4 patches all together!
Getting the quilt loaded is always the part I procrastinate on. Now that’s it loaded, I’ll easily find time to keep working one it. It’s fun and so close to completion now. I can’t wait to have a finish.
You can find me right back here next Wednesday. Dare I hope to have this finished??
