This weekend was my weekend to sew! I had a great time down in my sewing room stitching the hours away. Al had to work so I spent a good portion of that time sewing and then a little time cooking and baking.
I put in a few hours on my block for the FAVORITE BLOCK swap. My block choice was Mother's Choice. NOT AN EASY BLOCK!! At least the way I made it wasn't easy. I guess if I had followed the online instructions I would have been able to get both of them made in no time ....BUT NO... I had to do it my own way.. the old way. NOT FUN! I spent over 2 hours working on it and got a little over 1/2 way through. I'm going to finish it up the old way but the second block is going to be done using the instructions I found online. Can't believe that any lady (back in the day) would have made a WHOLE quilt from this block, unless they did it completely by hand... too many set in seams for a machine to do it correctly.
Well enough ranting and raving about that... After getting almost nowhere on that blue block, I started making some really easy strip blocks with my blue fabrics. I have blue fabric overflowing EVERYWHERE so it's time to make some scrappy quilts using up at least a tiny bit of my stockpile.
