Here is my design wall. Up there are blocks for two different quilts. I finished the Christmas swap blocks and as I did I put them amid the deco swap blocks that I was working on a couple of weeks ago. Until I started posting this picture, I didn’t realize that the Christmas swap blocks are really almost the same as the deco swap blocks. Funny, huh?
Here are the Christmas blocks, in process. I have difficulty chain piecing and still getting blocks together right. So I get all the pieces prepared and then I put them together. In order to keep all the pieces together I set up each block either in a manila folder or on top of one. Here are just two with four blocks ready to be sewn.
Today I will be sending these blocks off to the “swap mother” and someday I will get a package back with blocks made 11 other quilters. I don’t plan to make a quilt with them this year so I will start 2012 with at least one UFO ready for me.
But, that’s not all I got done this weekend.
Crazy Cat blocks.
I have really enjoyed making these.
I have a couple more to do and a little hand embroidery to do on all of them.
Because I do three WW meetings on Monday and Tuesday, I have decided that the rest of those days are devoted to household chores. But Wed – Friday are planned for the studio (of course the best laid plans …….). The weekends? Well, they are just up for grabs.
