Hello my bloggy friends... I have been uber busy this week with other things ... but have managed to get a bit of stitching time in since Sunday... mainly on these beauties :)
All but the last block required some amount of ripping out and starting over... I thought you might light a short tute on how to make ripping out or "frogging" I have heard it called... a little easier...
First snip every 3rd or 4th (if on a flat area) thread from the top if you know which is the top of your piece (chain piecing can cause you to get confused I think! lol) to remove thread from...
You are ready for another try at that perfect pieced block now :) Yahoo!
In reviewing my last block post I found the pic of this QAL did not show up so let me show you the example of this pattern and kinda what mine will look like...
Here are some close ups of each block in the order I did them ;)
The very last block was the first one cut and last one pieced and is the most special piece of fabric... each piece in this quilt has some meaning to me for the spool insides.. but this was a cover my friend Joyce made for my gypsy... now that I am selling my gypsy I repurposed the bag into 2 blocks... the one above... and this one a little smaller that I did with my friend Wendy!
I plan to do something special with this block and am pondering it.. it measures 6 1/2" now and finished at 6" .. ideas anyone?? I could applique is to my quilt center section... that is a thought on that redesign. A sewing machine with a spool and a cute pair of scissors ??
The MAN QUILT will be getting some attention today from me. Right now I am about 1/2 way through this feather now :)
I am selling all my craft room and will have an advertisement posted on my blog this afternoon for everything I am selling on eBay.. it is sad but necessary and I don't use the stuff anymore so it should go to someone who will love and appreciate it for what it is! Wonderful paper crafting tools and accessories to make masterpieces possible!
I am also trying to sell personally my Cricut Gypsy and wanted to offer it first to my paper crafting followers and their friends... are you or do you know anyone interested in a Cricut GYPSY???
Thanks for bearing with me through these times... more quilty fun to come!
