The best of plans can change
As sewing in-set seams or Y seams, is not my forte, my first attempt was wonky. Then I thought it needed to have the seam allowances added to the pattern because the units were too small to finish at 12 inches. So, I thought if I have to start over, might as well do it in the English Paper Piecing style. Did one (almost) (at left) before I realized that the pattern also calls for a plain piece in between the sage buds, like the Bear Paws (November) in the last picture. (!@$$%*@#$!!) (Sorry!) Starting over again!! I saw a few ... okay, many Westering Women quilts finished. I saw one that had 11 blocks. Guess which block was missing? I can sooo relate!! Anywho! Wasn't born a quitter but a kicker, so on we go! (Did my little exasperation dance but I am fine now. I can calmly carry on.) :^D
All the while, my leader / ender was the I-Spy quilt. Did more cutting than sewing on this one.
It is time consuming to get the fabric out, cut ONE five inches square and put the fabric back on the shelf. Start again with next fabric. Once I get to just sewing it, it will surely go pretty fast ... I hope so because February is almost over. Yikes!
The cherry on top of all this is that I am back at work. Since it is a progressive return to work, I still have some time to sew.I'm tired and happy! But it sure feels good to be back at work. :^D
Okay, got to go. My sunglasses are calling me.
Until next time ... I'll be looking up because it is brighter up there.
