Now that we are home, I have been working on piecing blocks four, five and six. I have just started to quilt them. Before moving onto to those blocks, I do need to back up and show block three.
This was easy to make, though I did not follow Leah Day's direction on piecing this block. Instead of cutting the pieces before stitching them, I stitched the strips first, then cut the blocks. It went pretty quick.
|Getting ready to cut the sewn strips into blocks.|
|Practice loops and writing. Where nothing is written will be the same loops and writing, only done without guidelines.|
|Circles and lines.|
|The bottom rows I did half inch between the lines, then I noticed the pattern is showing more lines and closer together, so I made quarter inch lines.|
|The lines on this one I used a ruler to try to get good straight lines. The curvy lines I did free hand.|
|Lines are getting straighter and I don't think the circles look that bad either.|
|The back side.|
|Short lines are better to do than long ones. Still working on travel stitching, I can see where I went off the line several times.|
|The back. Decided to throw a black square on the back instead of just gray.|
|I like doing the curvy lines, even though I did not stay on the lines, I think I did pretty good. The white lines will erase off, so I'm not concerned.|
|Not a real good picture of the back, but I think it looks good.|
I am having a lot of fun with this project. It takes time and that is one thing I need to remember, not to rush when I'm trying to do the quilting.
