I always cut my foundation blocks first. I use 7″ blocks. Then I cut a yard of fabric and then cut it again on the fold. I do that because of the interfacing only bring 20″ wide. Get it?
Then I iron on my interfacing to each piece and then cut out all of the peels with a template I made (nothing fancy, just paper).
The next part is the painful one. And truthfully, it’s the part if this quilt that I don’t like. See down each orange peel to each foundation block with a zig zag stitch. This part takes FOREVER.
I don’t mind a tedious quilt with lots of different pieces and blocks to put together. But this one is simple. It’s just that one agonizingly boring and long part. I go numb sitting in my. Hair that long, I get antsy, and BORED.
Other things I did this week:
I redid a wall in my home. Added new art and that trunk that’s been sitting in my garage for twelve years. The accordion coat rack I found at a yard sale a few weeks ago. The hubbies been complaining about the clip boards looking silly but I rather like it.
Have a lovely weekend!
