September’s block is now done and dusted for our Charming stars sew-a-long, I’m using the range “Midwinter reds” I only had enough of the cream fabric to make up 14 blocks with no sashing so 12 will be used for a wall hanging and the spare two will be made into a runner. I’ve already cut out and sewn up the points for each of my blocks but will select from these and make up one or two blocks a month till done.
I also copied Fiona's idea and made up HST blocks with the leftover corner triangles that would have otherwise been discarded and have plans of making a mini wall hanging as well as a cushion with these scraps…….Thanks Fiona it was soooo easy to make up these HST blocks
Now I just need to wait for some more Midwinter Red fabric to arrive so I can finish my next lot of blocks……I just needed a few more creams and tans to even out what I already had in my stash. When this quilt is done I plan on making a larger version with my birthday red & white fat 1/4’s for our bed and I’ll also be using Fiona's trick again to make more HST for a few extra accessories to go with it.
It feels good to be back at the machine, it’s been ages since I’ve done any machine sewing Hopefully I’ll be doing lots more over the next few weeks.
