|Block 4- Basket Weave|
|Block 5- Bat Wing|
|Block 7- Birds in the Air (I have skipped block 6 for now, I was excited to jump into this one with all the little triangles.)|
I was worried that Block 7 didn't have enough contrast, but now that I look at it, I actually love it! So far I have had a lot of fun piecing these little beauties and I'm even more ecstatic about the fabrics I picked. I'm excited to work on the next few blocks in the coming days and hopefully will make equal progress next week for my blocks. I am trying to balance making this quilt with about a half dozen other projects I am working on.
I started cutting fabric for my dad's quilt yesterday. I am using mostly Lake Life by Thimbleberries, with a few other prints mixed in, and I am using the McGuffey Schnibbles pattern, only I am making it bigger. He wanted a quilt big enough for his bed, and I had to put my foot down on that one. There is just no way I can quilt a queen size quilt on my little machine. Well, I could, its physically possible, but I'd be pulling my hair out. So I am doing a short double size quilt. Bigger than a throw, but not quite long enough to be considered a bed size quilt. It will still be the largest one I've quilted on my machine. I'm not sure what I will do with my Farmer's Wife quilt when it is ready to be quilted. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
