The weather yesterday was definitely like a lion! We saw snow, sleet, hail, and the sun was shining when the ground was turning white with hail. I’m hoping for spring … warmth … sun …
I don’t know if it’s the weather or not, but it just seems like my quilting is progressing very slowly!
Quilting: I’m still quilting in the ditch to section off parts of this quilt … I like the quilt, but every single time I decide to stitch in the ditch, I remind myself that it would be much much faster to free motion.
Piecing: I’m slugging away at Orca Bay … the only step I’ve completed is the blue string blocks which will be part of the sashing – and they were completed sometime last year, along with the red string triangles. All of the other units are in progress. It seems like it’s taking forever … and I’m not enjoying the hourglass blocks … lots and lots of them to do. I have no idea how many more I need to make … who counts when you have a billion to make?
The first picture is the pile of blue string blocks. The 2nd picture is some of hourglass blocks – waiting to be sewn. The last picture is some of the hourglass blocks joined to the red centres of what will eventually become Ohio Star blocks.
