I got another of my Dear Jane – “Insanity Revisited” blocks done today – a very easy one it took under an hour to hand piece it. It is called Snowball. I tell you as others will agree I’m sure – some of these little blocks are so easy! and then you get a tough one that takes almost 4 hours to make. I could have made another block today but I spent some time quilting at the big frame today, the quilt is coming along slowly but I will still be able to finish it by my February 22nd deadline.
On the subject of cats. I have 3 cat coffee mugs. They are a little unusual. I will start with the oldest first – this was one of the first two of the mugs that started my collection. This one was picked out by my oldest daughter at a craft fair god knows how long ago – I’m guessing – 20 years? 25? It is a one of a kind – I have never seen anything like it again. Looks like that cat is getting ready to drink whatever gets in this mug. I have actually never used it for anything – the cat very much gets in my way! but it has always been sitting out where I can see it. I will show the other 2 cat mugs tomorrow.
I have been told that some like all of my quilt questions no matter if they know the answers or not so I will continue to post them for awhile. This last test that I found has really tested me!
Yesterday’s question was: The 1000 Pyramids quilt is assembled with equilateral triangles – true or false? The answer is True click on the link and it will lead you to instructions on how to make it and you can print out a template.
(I guess I should point out that I have no connection to the links I provide. They are just found from searches on the net – I do not mean to advertise one page over another – I just pick one that picks my fancy.)
A new question – I don’t have these numbered – I’m taking them out of order:
When you applique, concave curves, lines that curve inwards, are easier to turn under when you make perpendicular clips along the curved seam allowance — TRUE or FALSE
