My son has been home from college and the rest of the kids came home this weekend too so little sewing has happened this week. That’s okay though…as much as I treasure sewing time, I treasure family time even more.
I managed to get the pieces that I had pinned for Kelli’s Double Wedding Ring quilt sewn.
I managed to remake my four patches for Celtic Solstice….I also worked on a little math to figure out how many of what I need. I am making my version in between Bonnie’s big and small version. Mine should be about 93″ x 93″. That way I can still quilt it on my machine…and it’s bed sized. That’s about the perfect size in my world.
and I made a decision on what I am doing for a layout. Last week I asked for some advice…. I showed this picture of my “wrong” chevrons and possible layouts.
I am leaving my chevrons wrong. For a layout, I am going to alternate rows with the “star” blocks in the upper row and the “diamond” blocks in the second row. Nope, mine won’t be like Bonnie’s and I’m fine with it. Several people advised redoing my chevrons but for me, life is too short and there are too many other quilts out there waiting to get made. If I end up not liking it, I am sure I can donate to some worthy cause where no cares about my chevrons. That is a luxury someone who makes lots of quilt can have.
Make sure to stop back later today and I’ll show you how I make 4-patches a quick and speedy way.
