I didn't get too much sewing done today, that could be because I am a little sore from using a jack hammer the past two days. Even though it wasn't long, and it was the little jack hammer drill, it makes your whole body hurt, and your hands too! Plus I mowed the yards in extreme heat conditions today too.
Right now I am working on the Garden Fence QAL. I had to wait because I didn't have the fabric I needed for the sashing. DD #1 bought it for me for my birthday, and she finally gave it to me last Saturday, not yesterday. (DD #2 bought me 2 flower GO! dies I needed :D) So I slowly starting cutting the pieces out this week, here are the first two sets waiting to go...........
I counted how many blocks I had...........I need a total of 100 and I knew I didn't have that many cut so far. So back to the cutting table I go. Here are the last 2 sets, I just don't have it in me to keep sewing the same thing over and over........that boredom thing is kicking in!
This last picture is a few of the fabrics on the design wall before I cut the last two sets. I was checking for light/dark values to see if I had more of one than the other, especially the darks since I was using chocolate for the sashing. I believe there are 23 different fabrics in this quilt including the sashing.
Hopefully I will finish the last two sets tomorrow. So then I can start pairing them all up and try not to duplicate any blocks. There will be 3 of the same fabric centers for blocks for 9 of the fabrics and 6 of the same fabric centers for blocks using the other 12 fabrics and there is one fabric there is only enough fabric for 1, and I got that out of the scrap basket. The same for the outer rings, and I want to make sure I don't pair any with the same ones. Plus there is 4 or 5 with polka dots, a few with swirls, and I want them all mixed up. Shouldn't be too hard, but I also want to keep the value even too. Hopefully I will have the top done next week when I do my weekly report.
Are you working on anything exciting right now??? I am also going to finish the last 2 blocks of BAP this upcoming week (thought they were all done) so I can start playing with the GO! and the flower garden I am putting in the middle of it!!!!!
