Yesterday while working on cabinet building I cut my finger. Nothing serious, just a small cut on the index finger of my left hand, but It keeps starting to bleed when I hand quilt. I really don’t want to bleed on a white whole cloth quilt so I decided to go back to hand piecing another project for a while.
I wrote about this one a while back. The block is called ‘Lansing’, and was published in Hearth and Home.
I have an antique block that is the same pattern, but the circle in the center is done in one piece.
from a piecing perspective it is much easier to do that circle in 1/4’s , here is the one block I made
here is 1/4 of the block from the back
Now I am doing some cutting of the pieces for more blocks.
I copied the block several times and made a picture of what it will look like when the blocks are joined
of course in real life the blocks will line up correctly, but you get the idea of what it will look like
I have lots of cutting to do so I will be busy with that for a while, or until I cant take it anymore and have to start hand quilting again.
PS I understand that there is some kind of sporting event on TV tonight …I wonder if anyone will watch it since Sunday Night is Downton Abbey night.
