Well, well, well I got a lot done today! I spent about two hours in the morning doing more handwork on my Shoofly before getting dressed and heading back to my sewing machine. My first task of the day was to organize the strips that I cut yesterday for the two Day and Night quilts.
Then I had to sew all the strips together. There are four strips in each group, 4 different groups, and 3 sets in each group… so basically ALOT of strips! After the strips are together you use a special triangle ruler to cut all the triangles.
I liked making the half-square triangles in to 3 pinwheels that will become snowflakes. Next I took a turn at some applique. I haven’t really done much applique but I like is and I would like to do more and get better at my blanket stitch. Anyways, I think the snowman I added turned out great!
Finally I finished adding the boarders around midnight! So all-in-all this quilt top took 6 hours to complete! Of course I still have to sew on button eye’s and a smile, sandwich and quilt, and put on a binding… so maybe another 6-8 hours before its completely finished!
