Well, I said I would show (and tell about) my big project that is keeping me from doing some fun and unfinished projects I'd rather to be doing. Phew...a mouth full!! I also said that Pat and her GO cutter came one day and we cut 75% or so of the strips and squares. However, I then had to sew together strips and cut again and also cut more pieces. (Used rotary for this..ugh!)
I made this pattern earlier this year to give a coworker for her marriage. Loved the end result but, now remember how tedious it was halfway through the making of blocks!! Oops!!
This time I'm changing the center and personalizing it. (Also larger this time.) The center will repeat the patchwork pieced heart in a larger form and contain an entwined heart.
On my design wall I have laid out some of the pieces for the center of the quilt. On the paper is a template I drew and I'm following. (And some things not related!)
As of today I have squared 16 finished heart patchwork squares, pieced together the 4 corners and finished the 12 patchwork side triangles.
By the way, I am making this as a wedding gift for friends of my son (he's in the wedding) and we have known them for 12/13 years. The wedding is Aug. 20th in the Hampton's, NY and I think I will go, my husband may not.
So I have a deadline looming!!! I do think the creative thinking part is finished (often the hardest part) and only have a backing to choose (oops, binding to do,too!). So, not too much thinking now just labor!
Wish me luck and I apologize ahead of time for my lack of taking part in fun doings or showing new projects for a bit!!!
Oh, and I will post a finished picture (hope I like it)!!!
