I made progress on the next melon block top.
It will be 9 blocks 18″ each, and I will add borders. I have lots more fabrics.
Yesterday I was asked about the back because there is so much bulk in the seams where the 4 units join.
I press the seams to the center
here are the 4 units joined.
The same for the other blocks but different arrangement of the units
Lots of layers of fabric there in the intersection at the center.
I am really not an accurate piecer. I know I could do better but it really is not that important to me to be perfect. For me close enough is fine.
I don’t use a fancy machine, I have a vintage Singer 301a and I love it. The tape on the throat plate helps my seam allowance size, I don’t have a 1/4″ foot.
I am calling the quilt Xs and Os
Here is an X
and an O
and here are all 9
Borders next, but I need to decided what I want to do with them.
Teddy is not offering an opinion, but enjoying watching the progress
Time for a piecing break. I think I will do some hand quilting 😉
