I don’t think I feel like attaching more than one long row a day – two more rows to get together for Tumalo Trails – 3 down two more to go. I do pin long rows in place so it takes longer because of that. The sashing in between the blocks I do not pin and just hole in place with the all the seams of the blocks on the top so I can see to have them not fold out on me.
All of the hexies that I had basted and sewed are now on the body of the piece – it is now almost as wide as the coffee table.
But when you put it on the dining room table this is what it covers – just to give you a perspective of the size. It is 29 inches long x 12.5 inches wide at the widest.
On June 7th a month ago it was this size – so it has grown a lot – it just doesn’t seem like it.
A whole mess of oregano from the garden was cut, washed and let sit to dry off for awhile before I loaded it all on the dehydrator last night to dry out over night.
Earlier in the day I had pineapple sage drying – I’m really not sure what you use it for other than ornamental but I googled it and it says you can use it in fish and poultry and tea – I thought I would dry a little to try out this year and see what I think – it dried quickly spread out over 6 racks and I have a pint jar more than half full – do any of you use it for anything in particular?
Thought I would mention that AccuQuilt is have a Christmas in July sale – if you have a Qube set – you might like to know that the companion sets are now 50%. I have the 12 inch Qube and the companion set will give me a Drunkard Paths die set, a signature block, and a chisel block – 3 different dies (one being two pieces) for $65.00 – While Quantities Last. Other items also on sale but limited times so you need to check if there is something you are interested in – they do not run good sales like this real often. Thank you if you click on through from the photo below or the word AccuQuilt here or on the sidebar.
