Hye Soo’s Quilt (II)


I’ve been having a blast working on Hye Soo’s quilt. I finally got all the fabric I needed, and could get started on it. After all the washing and ironing, I cut all the fabric up into strips and squares and then got down to the sewing and more ironing.

Cut up my strips – LOVE my yellow IKEA bins!
Squares for the centers of my blocks…
Stacked up all the pieces for each block
Sewing first two peices together…
2 levels of 4″ block done
String of sewn pieces
Iron
Finished 4" block
Done

Yesterday I worked on the 3″ squares, and got all 78 done… Somehow I made 3 extras… so hey there is that 2nd quilt calling to me again. –Don’t look too closely… I can see some mistakes in there. But I’m of the belief that mistakes in any artwork are the best parts.

At least that’s my story and I’m sticking with it. OK, Hye Soo, I’ll put the mistake blocks in my 2nd quilt.

81 3″ blocks:

81 3-inch blocks

All stacked up:

Stacks of 3-inchers

I hope you had as much fun reading about my progress as I had making all these. I’ve been dreaming of fabric squares in my sleep! {:-D

Wonky Scrappy Circles (II)


Well, I very quickly fell down on my goal to make one set of 4 blocks every day… surprise, surprise! (-: I made one more set a few weeks ago, which I’ll picture here. But I’ve been working on my niece’s wedding quilt, so the Scrappy Circles are taking a back seat for now. But for now, here are the pics from the last set of 4 blocks I made:
