I had some time to myself last night – husband was working and son was out with friends. Just me and my two girls. I have two Brittanys who by the end of the day just like sleeping on their bed. They are very happy girls.
I was able to piece both The Splendid Sampler and Machine Quilting Block Party blocks. I love piecing and both of these blocks used half square triangles. I had already cut out all the squares needed so I could just sew! Comfort zone! Block 8 – Friends Around the Square used an odd size for the half square triangles 2 5/8 inches. I had to mark the 2 5/8 on my ruler with a little painter’s tape to square them up . Those 1/8 inch lines are hard to keep track of without counting every time.
Both blocks came out very good. I left a couple of points that weren’t “perfect” go. I really don’t like the word perfect. I think you have to decide if it really is worth ripping out even a small section when really no one else will even notice once it gets quilted. No ripping on these – they came out just fine.
I didn’t get to add the border to the Machine Quilting Block Party block since both my boys came home before I could do so. Maybe after work today.
Until Next Time!
