With today being National Quilting Day, I wanted to work on something quilty when I joined the ladies from around the world last night for the virtual sewing bee, Friday Night Sew In; currently being hosted by Wendy from Sugarlane Quilts. I already have quite a few large quilt projects in various stages of completion, the most recent of which is my Holiday Celebrations quilt that I showed you on Thursday.
So I decided to work on finishing another of my smaller 2015 Finish Along Q1 goals. I made this sketch on graph paper earlier this week:
Then last night, I cut squares to make 8 half square triangles (hst) at once using this method.
And spent the rest of the evening sewing all the seams.
After that I’ll be sewing them all together and using them to frame that redwork embroidered Christmas mouse. If I finish before the end of the day, I’ll update this post with a photo.
How are you spending your Saturday? Are you working on something for National Quilt Day too?
