As always I have lots of irons in the fire. My list of things to quilt is getting taller and taller. I think I am soon going to have to go on a “no sewing machine” and “only quilting machine” kick….but like Scarlet O’Hara, I’m going to think about that on another day. For now, I’m still in the piecing mood…so piecing it is.
I somehow got all the blocks done to Four Patch X. I’ve just been working on them here and there, never really concentrating on them. In fact, I have more or less sewn them together leader and ender style. I have never really sat down and concentrated on them. Now next up is picking out a sashing.
I laid out the sashing so I could get an idea of what it might look like if I use the stripped fabric I was thinking about. I just laid the blocks out. If I do use the fabric all of the strips will go in the horizontal direction. I don’t might it. Feel free to chime in and let me know what you think. It isn’t what I would normally pick but I think that’s okay.
If you’re wondering the pattern is Bonnie Hunter’s Four Patch X from her More Adventures with Leaders and Enders book.
I also pulled a new leader and ender… My cheddar bow ties. This is a UFO for me. You can see my note. I have 130 blocks made and I need 729. I don’t see me getting super serious about this right now as I really don’t like these as a leader and ender. I end up loosing the pieces. For now, until I think of something different, this is the project.
I think I’d rather work on my Texas Braid so this might get ditched and Texas Braid might come out. That’s the good thing about a fabric stash and UFOs. There is always something to work on.
Watch the blog later this week. I do have a quilt on the frame.
Today I am hooking up with Patchwork Times.
