I love to sew after midnight. The house is quiet, it's dark and you know there isn't anyone coming "a callin". The cats are snoozing and the next thing I know the sun is up and I'm still at it!
After my blocks were done for Easy Street, I keep moving on Christmas things. I've read the Fence Rail block was good though I've done others I thought were harder, what the heck.
This is suppose to be a Fence Rail block but I used a Christmas Jelly Roll so I'm not sure of the look. Well I pieced them together with Diamonds, and hunted for sashing fabric. I put them up against Red - Whoa way too much!
This bolt is a lot brighter than the photo shows. White on White was ok, but just ok. There was some soft blue in this, but to me it's not good with Christmas prints. I jumped all over the Deep Hunter Green!
These came out good, so I watched a You-Tube (uh oh).
Cut the backing larger than the block, add the batting, then the top -- and Quilt. Hard to mess the back up when you don't have to lug around a big wad with hand sewing, pins inserted or squishing to get near center.
After you quilt, make sure to move the backing fabric away and trim the batting -- Ok.
Iron the Hunter Green and cut 14" blocks. Layer them and pin. Easy enough so far right? I'll go quilt a few blocks and see how this goes.
Plan B - Cut that side off with the hole, and use the excess from the other to turn and make "sashing". ***Do NOT Attempt at 4 am***
ARGH, now the lines don't match.
*Sigh* The sun is up and so is my husband -- Will grind and make him a fresh pot of coffee, give the cats their 1/2 and 1/2 and grab a nap. Where DID the night go??
oh say hi to Lucky -- This is his favorite position before he rolls over and lays upside down like a Penguin! Buddy Belly Boy
Hope the computer acts right when I get up!!
