Linoleum

Summer is officially here. I slept in until 9:30 this morning and woke up to seventy degrees and sun. After a lazy sit with my sister on the couch, I pulled my laptop towards me to respond to some comments and then moseyed on over to the studio to do some fun sewing. Sounds pretty perfect to me.

Back from sewing and only managed one Farmer's Wife quilt block today. I attempted to plan and cut easier shapes for the blocks instead of all the fussy pattern pieces but managed to miss some seam allowance here and there. I caught it early on the first one but not right till the end on the second. Ah well, practice will make perfect, and I will get better and faster at making the blocks from scratch.

This week's blocks
Linoleum






This work in progress will eventually get done someday... Check out other people's WIP over at Freshly Pieced.

    1. Thanks! The green is a Michael Miller stripe, and the houndstooth is from Bonnie and Camille's vintage modern.

    1. I do that too. When I start to reach the end of a piece of fabric, I have serious separation anxiety haha. Luckily, these fabrics are set aside for this quilt, so I don't feel so bad.

    1. Thanks! It's fun to shift back from the navy and coral colors that I've been working in for the past several months and pull out my favorite citrons and mints again :)
