These chickens have come home to roost. These are the first six blocks of the Funky Chicken BOM from fatcatpatterns.com. I only have two more to make and I will be all caught up. And I cannot tell you how much fun I have been having picking the fabrics for all the pieces. I am hoping to be able to start some of the stitching this afternoon but first I will need to decide on thread and what stitch I will be using.
And this is what is on my main wall. Actually, these are two sets of Christmas swap blocks that I need to get made up (2009 & 2011). I did have some heart stopping time when I went to get both sets and could only find one. It took me a couple of days to spot the second set. And then, when I found it (set on the left), I found that I had already made a second set of blocks to go with them.
I have 13 of these as well as the sashing, already cut (light fabric) and borders (darker fabric). Looks like this one is going to be pretty easy.
Now all I have to do is figure out how I am going to make the blocks on the right become a quilt.
One thing that has been keeping me out of the studio is that I have been working on EQ7 lessons. I joined an online group that is working on the lessons that are found in the program. I have to complete 2 lessons a week and post a picture of whatever was covered. So far I have been able to do everything and am even a coupe weeks ahead. It really is fun to be able to make that program work. There are still several more lessons to work on so I have a lot more to learn.
I have even less time for sewing now-a-days as I , once again, have agreed to lead a new Weight Watcher’s meeting. The really good thing about this meeting is that it is only 5 minuets from my house so I will be able to run right back to my sewing machine.
But before I get back to my sewing, I'm going to spend a little time with Judy at Patchwork Times. I know she will welcome you, too.
