Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

This Is Better

After dinner I decided I would forgo radio and television – after all, I voted this morning and watching the results is not going to change anything.  So, I’ve been listening to a book on CD and sewing.

First I prepped the snowmen for the Christmas BOM.

I still need to decide what I’m going to do about the stick arms, but I’ll embroider the faces when I get that far.

Since I had the project box out, I thought I would start sewing some of the blocks together.  The first thing I did was re-do one of my earlier blocks.

This poor star.  I made it in August 2003 — shortly after I got seriously infected by the quilting bug.  Let’s just say I didn’t do HST squares very well.

During the past 9 years my quilting skills have significantly improved – including being able to get the same look with different shapes.

This quilt using coping strips and lots of partial seams – something else I don’t think I could have handled when I started this quilt in 2003.

This is the largest section I have sewn together so far.

After sewing for a couple of hours, my room now feels more ‘creative’.  I need to pick fabric for another coping strip, then I can sew the next few blocks together to get all the way across the quilt.  Then I’m going to have to get on those last 8 blocks as the rest of the blocks are scattered throughout the rest of the quilt.

One Thought on “This Is Better

  1. I’m glad you could turn it off! I had to watch so I can add the Tallies to my Election Quilt from 2008. Your space looks good even with the projects out. I can bet you get this to Flimsy this year, before Christmas.
