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 –
