Ahhhh---Di---why do you need to redo today?????
Oh it wasn't today that I 'redid'--
it was a project--actually two of them!!!!
Why--because I got real tired of hearing this one 'quilt' crying all night--
I just couldn't get much sleep--
so even though I had 3-4 projects on the sewing table that I really wanted to do--
I went and got out the 'frog'--
That's me, what ya need today, Di????
Oh I see--we need to do alittle 'froggin' together on this project--
Ok, let's get busy and take out those large patches and then see what we can do--
so off we started--
took the border all off and then frogged in to the large plain blocks and took them out--
went into the sewing room--
but once I really looked at it,
I realized that more than one block had gotten sewed in so the names where actually reading upside down--well, lets take them out of there--
and by the time 'we' got done--
I had taken all the blocks apart into the 4 patch sets--
re-straightened them and laid them out again--
and then I had a 'light blub' moment--
and set off to redo the quilt top--
and here she is----
Oh my what a difference!!!!!
So what do you think?????
Do you like the first one or this one better?????????
Then I redid one of the Blessings basket blocks--
I am not happy with how mine are coming out--
there is not the quarter inch along the sides of the block for seams,
so that I won't lose the points when we sew them together--
here is the first one--
It looks like there is in this picture--but there is not enough room--
here is the redo--
There is more now--but on a couple of them it is 'iffy'!!!!
I even remembered that I have a ruler that measures in 1/8th inches--
so used that and we know that my machine is not doing a quilter's 1/4 inch--
Last night I did some drawing of the patterns onto freezer paper for some wool designs and for March and Aprils blocks on Something Wonderful SAL--now to decide which ones to do first!!!!!
Hugs, Di and the wonderful Miss Gracie--
