Work in progress Wednesday
It`s gotten to the point here on the west coast where it`s almost impossible to take a photo. Noon is just as grey as 4 pm and there`s a constant drizzle outside. Perfect sewing weather I`ll admit, but not great for the snaps. But it's Wednesday, so I'm fighting the grey and linking up over at Freshly Pieced.
The 2x wedding ring is progressing. I`m glad I`m just making this throw sized! Ten of sixteen rings are sewn and attached. Pretty good I`d say!
I've started on a couple new things this week. The first is my trial block for my bee month over at the travelling circles bee. I fell in love with this block and basically copied it. Yup, out and out plagiarism, but I don't care, I love it. And her tutorial is great, it's my favorite way of foundation piecing.
My other new start is a Texas Star following this tutorial on Blue Elephant Stitches. I'm so happy that Jolene posted this, I love the quilt she made using this block and the block itself is awesome. I think I'm going to draft this up to a 16" block then attempt a quilt using them. I'm even going to steal her colour palette!
