What have I done for the last month? I want to say 'nothing much' or 'mucking around' but in reality, every day seems busy. It seems with shorter days, I spend less time stitching during my favourite time of day in my sewing studio which is the time right after dinner with kitchen cleaned up. One hour of pedal to the metal except now it is so dark, I have push myself to come downstairs.
But, there have been quilty things accomplished along with gardening, yard work, tennis and fall clean up.
My hourglass scrappy Quilt of Valour was quilted (gratis, thank you!) and returned to me by Dianne of Chilliwack and she did a great job with it. This is a UFO from a few years ago when I made a quilt and had extra blocks leftover which were living on a hanger. I started making more blocks, using up leftover 2.5" strips and added in a panel.
I worked on adding hearts to background fabrics for a wonky heart long cabin quilt. I used a "new to me" technique. You spray the back of the hearts with 606 and then press in place. It makes a permanent bond but the fabric doesn't go hard like using a fusible web.
The tumblers blocks that were leftover from the last tumbler quilt I made got put together into another donation top. I still have tumblers left. I used my accuquilt to cut them out and tried to use up some 'what was I thinking? fabric'. I had to play with the rows on my design wall to get the effect that I wanted.
