Hope everyone had a lovely Easter! We had yesterday off as a Bank holiday and the extra day helped me make some headway on a few projects. I had over a week of no sewing, what with being away with work and catching up with family, so it was nice to have the whole afternoon yesterday, to get back into the swing of things and catch up on some TV programs I had missed. I watched 5 episodes of Suits back to back while chain piecing my triangles for Sassy Quilter's Triangle-A-Long.
I don't know why, but I had the idea of triangles being really difficult to work with. I'm fairly rubbish at managing bias edges but starching twice and using lots of pins really seemed to make this part go together nicely. I got 2 rows put together with no problems at all!
I'm all set up for chain piecing the rest of them! They do shrink the row length quite a bit when pieced!
I did make some progress over the rest of the weekend on finishing Bachelors Walk and hope to have that to show on Friday and managed to finish my 4 blocks in our Thursday night group quilt. I'm not too keen on the last block I made for this project and may make one more to swap this one out. All blocks are free patterns for the Moda Signatures Quilt-A-Long and can be found at Sylvia's Stitches.
Finally, while the rest of the triangles are on the table for chain piecing, I used the space on the wall to put up my Hexagon Medallion Quilt for the Modern Irish Quilters QAL. Yes I have 86 flying geese all made and am ready to sew them together, at long last! Update for this is meant to be today!
I have 4 hearts to piece for the corners and then the last border of 40 stars! Nope I'm not finishing this one on time! I was a bit tempted to stop at this border and frame it with a purple print but I've gone this far with it I might as well keep going and finish it right.
So that's what's happening this week. End of April is approaching and I've Bee blocks to do as well - going to be busy here in the crafty corner (ahem kitchen table!)
