Out of everything for quilting I think I despise ironing the most. I like most everything else but the pressing I don’t care for. I worked on Primary Colors off and on all day yesterday. There really is no rush on this but I don’t like to have the table covered for days on end with fabric and cutter, rulers, mat etc. I would like to get everything needed for this quilt cut out and then put away. So right now all of the “signature” style blocks have been cut, stitched and pressed! The four patches are about half way there. (I keep taking breaks from cutting)
but I ran out of cut pieces and my fat quarter bundle was done – no worry though as I had some pieces left over from the last quilt I had made using the fabric and I have one more bundle left over. I also have more of the dot fabric and I took out three more of the half yard pieces I have to press and get ready for the 3.5 inch squares that are needed. I decided to go with two of the yellow pieces for the 3.5 inch squares that I needed I knew I would need a couple more. Linking to My Quilt Infatuation today.
So from the bundle that had not been started I pulled a red and orange – and you guessed it – got it treated last night so I would be able to cut more today.
Each evening while watching tv I have been stitching the 3 row section to the body of Handful of Scraps. I will decide later on how wide this neutral section will be for now it will be 3 rows all around.
More tomatoes picked and although some of them are still green most will go in the sauce and if need be I will add a can or two of diced tomatoes to the crock pot as well. I will be canning the sauce this time so I need to find everything I need and do that on Friday. I will put everything in the crockpot tomorrow night and let it cook over night and crack the lid in the morning for a couple hours so the excess liquid can evaporate a bit and then can in the afternoon – I most likely won’t get more than 4 pints or so but that is fine with me just knowing that they are not going to waste. The big tomato that looks green is actually supposed to turn yellow and it should over the next couple days. I have one plant that they are yellow.
