Sleigh Bells Ring has grown up a bit since I last posted. I now have four rows of 6x6 blocks (3 across and four down) sewed horizontally and I've added the off whites in a double row on each long side.
My whole week has been about edges (more about this further on....)
Monsieur "Partridge in his Pear Tree" ;--))
I love this rose square ;--)))
Well, folks----this journey has been an eye-opener; I have collected mini charm squares the past year and cut some with my GO!BABY (go!! lol) and each company's 2.5" square is sized differently! Who knew?! Pas Moi!!
So this is an exercise in matching up for sure (especially as I am --oh no, not this AGAIN??--so 1/4" challenged--and for those of you still interested [anyone??] my 1/4" foot has STILL not arrived!! I ordered it from "sewforless" on October 6th!!!!--it should be sew-less!! humpfff!).
Hey Dawn--see your fabrics that you so (sew) kindly gifted me? The Dancin' snowmen and my favorite angels--a part of you will be in my quilt...thanks again...hugs....
And now for a different kind of "EDGINESS":
It doesn't look like much, but I added all those black hexies over Thanksgiving (and I am thankful for finishing those! 3 sides to fit in each)
and also on this side:
those aqua-ish ones on the left--my piece now has two sides ziggy-zaggy and two sides with 1/2 hexagon holes in it!
My next step is to make Monsieur Monet's Water Lilies floating and to add the French Writing....and another puzzle to be solved is born...I do like the city buildings though...
Today I hope to sew more squares on 1/4" challenged Helga--oops--sorry--I won't go down that road rant again!
But........... I have to rest my hand from hexagon stitching as it is sore...
I hope you have a sew-full weekend...
hugs, Julierose, La Blageus (Edgi-euse)
