Weekend Progress


A long-time friend of mine from Arizona is also a quilter who does the row by row quilts.  And I've been busy working some of my patterns up in to blocks or rows read for stitching so that I can give her the patterns for the rows that she'd like to have.   To that end, I've managed to assemble 4 more rows (one isn't shown here) and have the pieced sections for a 6th one made (the records at bottom left).

The records are shown by the store in a finished 12 by 27 inch row, but I'm not sure that i'll leave them in that formation.   So for the moment they are just individual 6.5" blocks.  Once I know what other rows I'm adding to the quilt I'll have a better idea of how I need to lay it out.







Row by Row 2018 Sew Musical PatternTrying to decide what other rows I want to add to it.   Part of that decision all depends on where I want to turn it into.   I've got the kit for this one from Stitchin Heaven, to I'll most likely use it, esp. since I'd love to turn it in there.  Which leaves me needing to pick one or two more rows.

I don't have the specialty ruler for the 'dance floor' blocks, so I'll need to either figure out how to make the block w/o it or do something else.....  The figures are laser cut so and I plan to raw-edge stitch around them. 


Gratitudes:

1. Finding treasures in all of the stuff that I'm unpacking and going through.

2. For the freedoms that we enjoy here in the US.

I like how it's coming along! Darn, I had one of those rulers somewhere, but I haven't seen it in a long time. You manage to do so much in between working full time, unpacking, and generally being busy.
