Last night was the first meet up for 2015 hosted by Wendy at Sugarlane Quilts and friends from all over the world. I had been sewing during the day so I finished a few blocks last night and prepped a couple more.
Block 25 of the Moda Building Blocks. I drew myself a foundation piecing pattern for this economy block and it went together smoothly with some Pearl Bracelets and Cotton + Steel.
Oops, another little project started. I am only doing nine of these blocks for a baby quilt (no intended recipient) and this is a combination of Cotton + Steel for the spines and plains for the body and face on a low volume background. I have three patterned fabrics and have raided Jane's stash for more. I am surprisingly lacking in plains though.
Another Moda Building Block which looks striking with its red and white spot on a Carolyn Friedlander background.
Time to get ready for the day, plans include:
Making cakes - probably ginger cupcakes
Playing canasta this afternoon (hence the need for cake)
Dinner with Mike & Jane
Prepping some blocks for tomorrow's UFO day as I've stitched up the ones I had already prepared. I also need to find the last border for my Aviatrix quilt which might also lead me to some more plains.
