My friend, Wendy, at Pieceful Thoughts chose the signature block for the fourth border for our Stay at Home Round Robin (SAHRR). I decided that the light French Bull Dog fabric from Christopher Thompson’s Blue Carolina collection would be perfect since I could cut the dogs on the diagonal for the signature blocks. Of course bias cutting tends to eat up more fabric than straight cuts, so I chose to only make eight signature blocks. Getting the dogs going the right direction and not upside down proved to be challenging especially when I was sewing Saturday afternoon and starting to run out of steam. I definitely had to use my seam ripper and do some re-sewing. My SAHRR project now measures about 35.5″ square.
I actually finished the last six economy blocks for Lucy’s I Spy quilt on Saturday and got the layout designed. I plan to share the finished quilt top next Sunday. Here is one of my favorite blocks that I think is perfect for a toddler quilt:
I am up-to-date on my flying geese units for all three temperature quilts but need to make a unit that captures the data for my rides on the Peloton bike last week. I hope to post a progress photo or two next week.
