A Little Piecing


A little more piecing was done on the center block for the Common Bride quilt.  It is amazing how little pieces can go together so quickly.  I did run into one problem in that a template was turned out to not be the right size (the beige color piece) – it still worked out but I had to trim the block afterwards before putting on the corner pieces – the template was too large – so much better than too small!

Right now it is ready for the thin sashing and cornerstones before it is on to the feathered star part of the block.  The block right now is right under 8 inches square.


This is the box of white on white, beige on white, beige on beige box to go through for the back ground pieces.  I actually have more beige than I thought I did so before I decide for sure on a white background or beige background I will be taking pieces out of the box today and looking through it all before the final decision.  I do not plan on buying anything more than a few fat quarters here and there for this quilt – most will be done with what is on the shelves.


The cut is healing nicely, doesn’t look near as bad as I thought it would right after it happened. I had to cut the whole fingernail off as the cut went through the end of the nail and under the edge of the nail.  Feels a little puffy yet, but I’m done with the Band-Aids.


Time to get busy for the day.  Have a great day.  I hope all of my readers that live in the  south by the gulf are safe and will not have too bad of a time through the Hurricane Isaac –

    This quilt is going to be beautiful, like all your others. Is the whole thing done with templates? Wow, what a lot of work. I’m so glad your finger is healing nicely…after all how can I see all your beautiful work if you are wounded? Have a wonderful day.

    That quilt is beautiful. I saw it as a block of the month and almost signed up. It looks like it is going to be a lot of work!

    Your finger still looks pretty sore. Ouch.
    Glad to see it isn’t slowing you down with your quilting. Your block looks great!

    I saw a map of the path projected for Hurricane Isaac this morning – hope you will be out of the danger zone. If not, my thoughts are with you!

    I’ve been in Colorado for a week, tending my mother who had surgery and taking care of Dad who has Parkinson’s. You sure have been busy!! Love the red and green quilt, as well as the new Common Bride project.

    Take care of that finger – those rotary accidents sure can be painful!

    I can feel your pain with that cut on your finger. You don’t realize how much you use your fingers until you have a cut. And this one looks pretty bad. Amazing you can still quilt but doing something you love diminishes any pain.
