I didn’t have much time for sewing but I had some. If you’re been following along you know that I’ve been doing strings on the treadle for Daylilies. Being I only had two-ish hours to sew I decided to head up to the sewing room and pull Tulip Fields. With the String Challenge I have three quilts left to completely from the book…Pineapple Crazy needs to be quilted. Daylilies needs the string blocks and Tulip Fields is cut out but that’s it.
Here’s how I last left it….
I’m so happy with myself that I left a good note inside.
Only problem…ugh. I couldn’t find the book with the pattern. I don’t know where I put it. I didn’t want to waste all my time looking for it. Well I remembered that some triangles had to go one direction and the other triangles the other direction…so I went on the internet, typed in “Tulip Fields Bonnie Hunter” then went to images and I saw this…It’s a picture I took from my very own book. It’s a picture that I probably had on the blog at one point….kind of silly. I guess I did find my book in a way..just not the hard copy form in my hand that I wish I had.
No time to fret…I just started sewing after I looked at the quilt long enough.
I love my seam guide...It’s from Lori Holt. I didn’t know if I’d like it or not but I sure do.
Before long I had a pretty big pile. I’m not done yet but hopefully another session like this and I will be. Then onto ironing.
I don’t know what I’ll be working on next weekend. I am looking forward to a couple extra days off over the 4th of July. I hope to make one a real sewing day! In the meantime, I think I’m going to start looking for my book! Once I get onto another step I’m sure going to wish I had it.
Your making progress and anytime spent stitching is well spent. I cant believe how close you are to having all those quilts done.
