Lots of prep

Lots of dog ears to trim.  Then finally sewing!!  Putting a few of the hst together and lots of pressing.   I hadn't completely thought through all the pressing and the amount of piecing involved when the entire quilt is made of hst.

Then drat!  After putting about 40 squares together....only three are correct.   I guess I'll be doing some un-sewing tonight.

Two halves = whole

Many many hst.  Two hundred small blocks become 400 hst.  Likewise 150 larger blocks become 300 hst.

AQS lancaster 2014 show

A few pics from the 2014 AQS Lancaster show.  Beautiful work, must all be professionals who's work is accepted. 

No chance for my work making this level....especially while I am working.

First finish for 2014

I took on more responsibility at work, some days just kick my butt.  So not much sewing done lately.  The last two weeks I have been catching up. 

When the spring weather breaks I will be outside so I have finished red and white,  and also got a start on another before I am out playing in the dirt.

Approaching another finish

The red and white is in the final stages.  I love love love this one!!  I like each quilt I make but I like both the pattern for this and the monochrome color.

After a very long day at work, and yoga I now sit to watch another episode of Sons of Anarchy and work on some binding.
