Tah-dah! Below is the design that I stared with. Not exactly the same but pretty close! I really like using Electric Quilt to “sort of” design my quilts. I don’t hold fast to what I put on the computer but it gives me a jumping off point which I like.
I only bought fabric for the sashing and the border on this quilt. Yay! I’m loving the scrappy look for using up my… uh… small stash. 😉
So I was gonna have someone else quilt it and at the last minute I couldn’t send it off… I tried doing free motion and my machine was acting up so I just went with a simple grid, nothing fancy. 🙂
It turned out to be a bit on the wild side… but really would you expect anything else from me?! Now I just need to get it quilted… but I think I’m going to have someone else do that for me because I’ve already started working on another project. 😉
I’ve got all 144 six inch blocks made… and guess what I’m doing now? Sashing! When it came time to deal with all those bulky seams I decided sashing would make it all soooo much easier. So I’m adding it. 🙂
I didn’t have any time to sew yesterday! I did see lots of friends though, so that was nice.
I was going to add sashing to these quilt blocks… I even planned it, as you can see in my quilt notes above. ((Gotta use my iPad for something!)) However, the thought of cutting up a bunch of strips just didn’t strike my fancy, not to mention the quilt is already rather colorful! I think I have cut enough pieces to sew the remaining blocks so whippin’ them up should be a breeze. I know sashing can be nice because you don’t need to worry about points matching up, and I know my points won’t all match up… but you know what? Who cares! I’m just going with it. 🙂
Sun is out today… I went to the early aerobics class and sewed all morning! I love gettin’ stuff done.
Another dash of my churn dash blocks… heehee… these titles are gonna get real old, real fast!
It’s a rainy day here… which makes it a perfect day for sewing. 🙂
Making more wild churn dash blocks. It is nice to have most everything moved.
Another dash of the lovable churn dash block. I made all of these today! Suh-weet! 🙂
I’m churning out the churn dash blocks… It is quite a fun block to make. I’m also enjoying slapping the colors together however I want! Yeah for crazy colors. 🙂
I don’t know what I’m doing with these. I cleaned out my stash and I’m cutting all the small pieces into shapes for this bock. These blocks are 6.5 inches unfinished and when I made the first one I thought what have I done? I messed it up, its too large. Ummm… no it was just fine, apparently 6.5 inches looks large next to 4.5 which is what the Dear Jane blocks are. I just need a bit of a break from Jane… how long did it take her to make that quilt? It seems a bit like it is taking forever!
Of course I have a few projects that are soooo close to being done, and I could have chosen to finish one of those while I take a “break” from Jane, but no… something new is in order! Maybe my motto will be whoever dies with the most unfinished projects wins. I do skip about and read other blogs where they steadfastly finish stuff but really, what fun is that?! 😉
