last time I posted about a new top I am making called “Table Scraps”
I did some more piecing on that.
I am using 2 inch strips
I sew together 6 and then cut into blocks
Stack up a few of them and then cut the other direction
then rearrange them
then sew them together. once I have enough done I arrange them in the diamond shape
after they are sewn together I cut them again to be an accurate 45 degree diamond so they will all fit together to make a star
One of my fabric pieces was large enough to do a full diamond unpieced……I like the variety
2 more diamonds to go….I’ll probably piece them a bit differently…I’ll post pictures of that soon.
The finished star should be about 75 inches across and it will get a pieced scrappy border to make a finished quilt of about 85″ square
Today it finally rained……but you really can’t call it a real rain…just enough to get the grass damp and cause the humidity to go up to 90% . It has been so dry! What we need is a good long all day rain! I took a few garden pictures shortly after the rain. (click pictures to enlarge)
I did another video of hand quilting….this one is quilting on an antique applique quilt.
