Right now I am doing:
I'm doing red and white.... each Wednesday we get a new block, ending on the first day of Summer.
2. Pat Sloan's Children's Library challenge blocks
How could I not do this challenge? I taught kindergarten for 30 years. I love children's books. One block a month.
3.The new BERNINA Block of the Month... starts today. I don't have my fabrics yet. :).
4. And now. Farm Girl Vinrtage.
My friend Peggy said she was starting this quilt.
Farm Girl Vintage is a book written by Lori Holt. I love her quilts, fabrics, everything.
So when Peggy said she was doing it, I jumped in too. After all its more fun to do it with a friend. We shopped till we dropped getting vintage looking happy fabrics, and off we go.
You can do the 12 inch blocks or 6 inch block. We are doing 6 inch blocks.
That means smaller pieces, and more precision piecing. .
First step cutting, and major organization
Call me the queen of post it notes. Lori Holt uses a lot of snowball corners in her pieces. That means sewing on the diagonal, that means corners that get eaten.
Not with my BERNINA, I put on my straight stitch throat plate. Sews those diagonal seams like a dream. I am using my Sew Straight gadget from Quilt in a day, so I don't have to mark all my lines. and my presser foot 34D. I line up the corner with the line on my foot
Perfect piecing. Stay tuned, I'll post the block when it's finished.
Happy Sewing everyone
