Happy Mother's Day
Now that I've sorted my repro fabric into colour-ways it was an easy way to pull 13 light and 13 dark fabrics from my fabric collection. I prefer to cut them a little larger and then square them up when they are stitched together.It may take a little longer but this way I know they are accurately pieced. I have almost made all of the 128 needed so I hope to finish those tomorrow.
I'm working backwards on this quilt as it was made in sections and I have been making the different sections before I put them together. I need to get all the parts together and see how many more sections are needed. Check back soon and I should have more progress to show you.
It's not easy to change my way of working to working on my projects but I have also been hand-piecing stars for a donation quilt as well as de-constructing more house blocks. I think I had planned to make them into a vest many, many years ago. I hope to have enough blocks to make a quilt from then and will probably donate it when it's done.
I have been asked to keep the Oz Comfort Quilts blog site still active so I will keep it and post photos of donation finishes as they happen. Thank you for stopping by.
Hugs, Jan Mac
