Oh, what a slippery slope I am sliding down. I have to start this with a caveat, I am not a "miniature" quilter. 2 1/2" half square triangles are plenty small for me, but 1" finished? Oh my!
My piecing and cutting and pressing has been pushed and I have to say, I think because of the Simple What Not's I've become a better quilter. But honestly, did I have to make this many blocks to get to this point?
These sashing pieces use 1 1/4" brown squares to make the little triangles on the end of each strip, then the strip is sewn together to make the next round on a 9 patch. But the 9 patch in 3 1/2 " sq and that's tiny!
I've got my 9 patches all made for the 16 blocks that make up Cloud Nine. Some have got the first round of sashing.
Our group that meets once a month has only 3 more to go, and Cloud Nine will be the last one that we do. I have given them a heads up on the cutting, there is a lot of it, and with all the extra fabric that comes in each kit, they can get a jump on this one.
So far 5 blocks are finished. There is 1" sashing that goes between the blocks and the outside boarder has some piecing. For now, I'm just trying to get the blocks together, as I need to put this aside and get cracking on another What Not pattern.
It's been a great ride, but I'm looking forward to something different after the summer. Have you seen the quilt along that Lori and Karen are going to start in July? I'm in for the appliqued blocks, anyone else jumping in?
Check out my Instagram posts, they are fast and easy for me so a bit more is going on there
Thanks for stopping by, hope you get some stitching in this week.
