Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

40 Day Challenge – Day 19

It’s day 19 and have finished all but 1 of the Star Studded blocks I have in my possession.  I’m not fond of paper piecing, but I’m even less fond of hand stitching and applique which is what the next block includes.  I’ve finished 7 12-inch blocks which is what I started with at the beginning of the challenge, but I suppose I really need to do that 10th block before I mark this as complete.

Today during the Facebook Live event Stitch-On Needlework did, they showed this pattern. I’m not sure what it is that I like about it.  My original plan was to go swing by and pick it up this weekend, but my sister was on her way to the shop and offered to bring it to me. That saved me money, not only for the gas, but for whatever I would have ended up buying while in the shop.  I still have 2 patterns and the fabric to make a quilt and a wall hanging that I bought last summer that I haven’t even started.  Perhaps that will be my next challenge.

Up next really needs to be the binding on the log cabin quilt. My sister is coming over this weekend to use the longarm and while she’s here she wants to use my sewing machine to attach the binding to the 4 quilts she’s quilting since she can’t find the walking foot for her machine.  That means binding needs to occur before Friday.  While she’s here, if the weather is good I hope to get pictures of some of the quilts and I guess I’ll spend the weekend working on Frolic and assorted pillowcases.
