It's lunch time so I figured I'd post again and I'm getting tired of all this black and white!
First let me show you the BIG quilt that I finally finished the binding on.
this thing is so big it had to drag on the floor when I hung it on the design wall
large applique ribbon in the middle block
a pretty simple rail fence block
I quilted a sort of copy of a panto I had seen online.
hand done ribbons and swirls and hearts.
Now back to the BARCODE quilt.
it's hard to see, but with a green color pencil, I drew vertical lines down every OTHER square,
this way it shows me how they go together 2 and 2, it's 27 blocks wide. So I always had one leftover white block.
I went to TOWN and fed the dog :-) this pile behind the machine kept growing and growing.
I also had the ruler on the chart to check which row I was working on
See, the piles with the numbers and pins are still together, black on the bottom
(hard to tell with a black table
here's my white left over pile
And for this morning's LISTENING pleasure I chose little bit of
right next to the radio is my BOX of owls and baskets and portfolios ready for the craft show
Here's all the sets of 2 sewn together, I cut them apart and didn't worry about the ORDER which I sewed them together
Then I lined them up and ironed the seams apart and sorted into 3 piles
Now I made it half way thru the pile then I needed a break.
I tidied up the TV room and the kids bedrooms and did a few other things, tomorrow I'm going to asheboro Randolph county quilt show and saturday my in-laws are visiting so I figured I'd already tidy up a bit.
