Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Weekend Sewing

As of 8 PM Sunday night, this is as far as I have gotten on the 2nd quarter of the wedding quilt.  Each cross of units contains 2 lavender broken dishes, 2 seafoam broken dishes, and the 5 neutrals squares necessary to make one block  in the quilt. It doesn’t seem like much, but much of the weekend was spent doing non-piecing quilting.

This year I’m my Guild’s Quilt Registration Chair to the Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival, so Saturday morning started off with a call with my co-chair. Afterwards, I visited a friend to try and figure out how to load the bobbin to the new to her Bernina 820. That machine is smarter than I am.

Afterwards, instead of coming straight home, I headed off to Stitch-On Needlework in Lawrence Kansas. They do Facebook Live Shows on Mondays and Thursdays.   A few months ago I fell in love with a quilt they had hanging in the background.

This is Fairy Floss with Maggie Sashing from The Block-Maker II for Half-Rectangle Triangles by Janna L. Thomas.

The last time I was in the shop they didn’t have it in stock, but Saturday was my lucky day and I was able to pick up a copy.

Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon was spent working on the Guild’s website, bringing the content up-to-date. I also watched the video on how to use the Bloc-Loc Half-Rectangle Triangle ruler.  I fell in love with the quilt in the background of the video.

This quilt is Star Fusion with the Serena sashing.  The video can be seen HERE.  It was after this that I finally sat at my sewing machine.

I haven’t decided if I’ll try to assemble a few blocks tonight or not.

One Thought on “Weekend Sewing

  1. Pam, I LOVE all of the Bloc-Loc rulers and have about a dozen. I also LOVE the quilt, “Star Fusion”, that was in the background of her video. I got to see it in person at Paducah in 2014 and I bought the pattern. It is really beautiful. I’ve got it on my list to make.

    When are the dates for the KC Regional Quilt Festival? We always enjoy going.
