I wish I could tell you that I had a HUGE pile of quarter square triangles all sewn and finished for my Orca Bay, Bonnie Hunter, mystery…but I don’t. I do have a really little stack though.
There are only about 20 finished ones there…the rest of the this week’s installment is in various stages.
All the pieces are cut out…all the triangles have been sewn together once. I like to keep my projects together in cake pans or in flat boxes like the one in the picture. It helps me stay organized. I think it’s fun to watch people work on projects like this…some cut one block and finish it, some have to work on each step until it is entirely finished, some do a bit of this and a bit of that. I am mostly the last one. I like to work really hard on parts as they fit in with my life. At one point this weekend, no one was around so I power sewed all the pieces together. Last night, hubby was in the kitchen so I was at the table and ironed while I hung out with him. I am sure one of my kids will call on the phone tomorrow and I put the speaker phone on and iron. I am curious how others tackle assignments…are you methodical and have to complete an entire step or do you skip around like I do?
I am also working on this project….funny thing, I have to make 256 hour glass blocks for that one. Thankfully those hour glass blocks are a little bit bigger.
I’ll finish up the rest by Friday if all goes well. We are expecting all the kids to come home this week. Some just for Thursday…some for a couple days…one all week. A lot of cleaning, grocery shopping and orgainization needs to happen around here before Thursday so we’ll see what happens. If Orca Bay doesn’t get done of Friday, I’ll catch up over the weekend. Family comes first.
If you are up for more eye candy, check out my crumb quilt along linky party here. We’ll be having another party in January to see the rest of the finished quilts.
