I've completed two more blocks for my Brinton Hall quilt. These blocks come together so quickly. If you missed how I made them you can read about it here. The hexagons are 1". I cut 2 1/2" strips of fabric (across the width of fabric) and rapidly cut the hexagons for the frame.
I've also been basting leftovers for the side filler pieces that will be needed when the blocks are made and stitched together.
I've added the final wavy appliqued border to the sides of Value Proposition and I've removed four rows from Birds in the Loft to make it less large. It is now 100" long (give or take) and I can live with that.Unfortunately it is raining so the pictures will have to wait until it is dry outside. I've designing a medallion that I can surround with the leftover rosettes from Birds. I need to sort out the colours I'll use and then I can start cutting and basting!
I found another hexagon project in with my fabric and most of the work was done but I think I got sick of it so I just put it away. I've had a look at it and am in love once again so I'm going to finish it up. Here's a sneak peak. More about this quilt in the days to come!
I'll leave you with a picture of the lads, Gump (left) and baby Jinx (right). It is so funny how the old guy fell in love with the baby (he generally hates all other cats). These two are inseparable now! Mind you I think Gump would be just as happy if Jinx would just give him a little alone time! For my part I am happy that he appears to be losing his interest in my patches. He hasn't stolen any in weeks however earlier in the week he tried to run away with a pair of scissors! Crazy cat - doesn't he know that you need an opposable thumb to use them and more importantly NO RUNNING WITH SCISSORS JINXY!
My chores await so until I post again, happy sewing!
