l was so happy to put the final seam in this quilt.
With over 3,500 pieces, ( who's counting!! )
it was a mammoth task. And l loved every minute of it!!
Of course, when you finish a quilt, you can start a new quilt, right??
So, l've been wanting to make a red and white quilt for a while!! LOL
( Can anyone tell me if there is a R&W Annon group for my addiction? )
What better time than now.
l must admit to not having done much paper piecing.
It wasn't long before l had a container of perfect sized triangles
And another container of paper scraps,
mindlessly removed while watching Downton Abbey on TV.
Remember these blocks just waiting for inspiration?
Well, its taken its pretty time coming!!
We have tried all sorts of settings. And because 6 of us made
and swapped the blocks, we are all in the same predicament,
because we are trying to find 6 different ways to
set the blocks, that each person likes.
You saw in a couple posts back what Anne is doing with hers.
Over the weekend, we cleared the design wall and started playing.
Here is Chris and Sandra putting inspiration on paper.
This is what they came up with. Sandra thinks she will go with this.
More playing. But wait!!!!
If l turn the hour glass blocks this way..........
You get 2 options using the same blocks, but different!!
Which one would you choose?????
Of course, our weekends are also about food!!
Well, had we remembered to take a photo BEFORE we ate, that is!!
But we did remember to take one before we ate desert!!
Banana and passionfruit on pav!
A marriage made in heaven!!
And just for something NOT red and white,
here are my 55 16 patch blocks ready to be posted overseas.
Those half square triangles from earlier?
This is where l am at. Who knows where it will end.
It truly is an addiction!! LOL
And that's the end of this wonderful sewing marathon.
l hope you have enjoyed seeing what we all enjoyed sewing.
No red and white quilts were harmed in their making.
And all quilts will be on display at Quilts In The Barn in October.
Thanks for visitng.
