Adventures in Fabric Art

WIP Wednesday: Sewing Again!



Yes, six new blocks, like this, for the Coffee Quilt.  I will was all thumbs using the rotary cutter after so long away.  I wasted some fabric, but eventually cut enough triangles to make these.  Even managed to include some yellow Mirror Ball, one of my favorite fabrics. These blocks finish at nine inches.  The weather looks to be cooling off, so I may get this top pieced before the month is out; quilted, I’m not so sure.  Twelve more Cardtrick blocks
and then mitered borders.

My sewing machine is purring away after being cleaned.  However, six blocks were all my back and shoulders could handle.  Now to catch up some on reading blogs (don’t even ask how far behind I am on podcasts!)

How are you progressing?

I’m linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. Nice! Moving forward is always good. I’m working on so many things I can’t even begin to list it all. 🙂

  2. Card Trick is one of my favorite blocks. They always look nice.
