Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs. You are welcome to grab the cute little mouse and create your own Needlework Tuesday post. Leave a comment with a link and I'll be sure to visit with you.
I will admit that with all those pieces and different fabrics I did get some bits out of order and had to do some un-sewing. I found I worked best if I laid all the blocks out before I started any sewing. This is a set of 8 blocks of the same pattern. I work on all the blocks at the same time so that I sew the same step for all of them at the same time. After sewing the final seam, all of a sudden I have 8 finished blocks. (a little happy dance moment) Next step is putting the top together. I'll have a photo of that next week.
Last week I finished all the blocks for the Gretchen quilt that is for my niece. I think it looks great. Just what is needed in a dorm room. Suggestions of how to quilt this beauty would be appreciated. Earlier I wrote a photo post on how to piece the Gretchen block.
Remember to leave a comment with suggestions of how I might quilt the Gretchen Quilt (which I really should change to the Jessie Quilt, as that is my niece's name).
Who else is stitching this week:
Over at Just One More Thing, Tami is stitching aprons and the neatest fabric boxes/baskets.
It feels as good as winning the lottery when you finish a huge project. Sarah at Lit and Laundry is on cloud 9 with her recent finish.
With time to spare, Roslyn at Ros-the-Quilter has finished piecing the top for her new Christmas wall hanging. Beautifully done.
The needles have been flying with Marie over at Daisy's Book Journal. She has several cuddly projects on the go.
