School’s only been out for a week, and I’m already behind on blogging! Ooops… I took an unintended week off from the blog because, well, summer. Baseball games for Henry, Dumb Friends League Camp for Annie, a new cat for my mom, a 5 day weekend for me, and oh yeah, my husband’s birthday in the middle of it all!
I didn’t have any Tula progress last week as I was racing to complete that special HST quilt- and it was mailed off over the weekend, so I’m back.
Blocks 41-44- more triangles. Ugh. If I ever want to be reminded that I am NOT an accurate piecer, these blocks should do it…
Block 41 was an excuse to use that wonderful Lizzy House Constellations print I finally found a few weeks ago. I threw in a shot cotton and my AMH feature fabric, and, ta-da. I really like this one.
Block 42: I went back to one of the prints from the Nightshade line, and I am so happy that I managed to get one of the skulls right in the center 🙂 Then some purple solids from stash, and again, ta-da. No complaints about this one.
Block 43 and I had issues. This is the 2nd one I made. My first version was wonderful, I loved the fabrics, and then, I walked across the room. And the chevrons totally blended into one another and looked like a blob. Boo. Back to the drawing board (aka stash) and I started again with MUCH greater value differences. I’m much happier with take 2.
Block 44: simple and sweet, and makes me smile. Nuff said.
So here’s what I’ve got done to date:
Not bad. I am so close to the halfway point that I can almost taste it! Also, nearly as close to the end of the triangle section. And THAT will be cause for a par-tay!
