NOTHING. Did not use any fabric from stash at all. But, I do have some productive sewing activity to report.
The fabrics from the Bears in the Farm house project were bigger than needed and I had some pieces left. I've seen this material for so many weeks now that I do not want them back in the stash and continued to work with them. I didn't have a particular pattern on mind so I settled on nine patches. They came out cute but looked too simple, What to do?
Maybe they would be happy if I box them in a square-in-a-aquare setting, alternating red and green fabric for an hour glass effect. Unfortunately, (of course) it was late at night and didn't go well. The formula I found for this block said to cut the squares the finished size plus 5/8", well being tired and all (I claim temporary math ammesia), I figure the eighths mesurament was not worth the trouble and upped it to the next increment,I added 3/8" not 1/8" and now the nine patches are floating. trimming them to the correct size was not gonna work and they are staying at 9 1/2" unfinished.
Still not happy, they seems to dark. Where do I go from here? I took my blocks to class and put them up on the design wall.. 95% of the class suggested a cream lattice to tame them down, I think that is a good idea. I'll work on it this week.While still at class, I pin basted the double delight top and it is now ready for machine quilting. I don't have much experience with machine quilting, but I plan to practice on this top. I am thinking a curvy or meandering pattern, but will probably end up being stiched in the ditch.
I have all week to work on these two projects since the babysitting job is on spring break until the 20th. Making happy blocks is my goal for this week.
