The first verrrrrry long step of the piecing process. I think that I am happy with each piece! I seemed to have almost all of the pieces matching Woohoo! Now it is on to the border! I have a quilting guild meeting tomorrow night so I will bring it in and get some opinions on the colours of the inner border…the other border is already chosen. I am so proud of myself…this was so intricate and I measured EACH 1/4 inch seam so they would match!
And I had my favourite company for the whole day:
Pye-Pye…sitting under my ironing board :). He’s been sleeping about a foot to the right of where is now but he moved to this spot when he realized my feet needed his space. This was my other company: CBC radio. The Sunday radio programs are always interesting!
Oh! And here is my scrap jar after this week-end’s work. I really find it hard to throw scraps out!
If you look really closely in the jar, not all the scaps are mine. When I was at the workshop yesterday I had place all my scraps in a little pile beside my sewing machine, ready to put in my bag to bring home. I did not put them on the floor to be swept up…however, a well-meaning sweet lady, dear her took them and all the others and put them in the garbage :(…I politely asked her if she had put my scraps in the garbage and she said yes, but when I told her that I save them she felt so bad that she retrieved them and then gave me all the others…so moral of the story, keep scraps hidden! Am I the only one who keeps these little pieces?
