It's time to share your y-seam adventures again!
I've been stitching up a set of seven posey blocks that I found while sorting through UFO's a couple weeks ago for the Orphan Adoption project hosted by Cynthia at Quilt Is More Fun Than Housework. Who cuts out just eight blocks (one was finished)?
Since I chain piece through y-seams, I using them as sew-offs while working on other projects.
They are 6" finished and were probably a teaching sample at some point.
I could make a few more -- all the fabric is right there and they are very sweet.
When they are finished, we'll see what they become!
I've followed Karen over at Faeries and Fibres for several years. She is currently working towards a new EPP "follow along" for us called The Empire Quilt. She's teasing us with peeks at sections of it.
Last week, she posted a detailed explanation of cutting stripes for hexagons. When I asked her to share with the link-up today, she explained that she is coping with her own construction chaos and it has impeded her access to her computer. So I offered to share it for her as part of my babble.
You can read her complete post by clicking HERE.
Even though she is speaking specifically about stripes and hexagons, her ideas apply to any directional fabric and other shapes.
My construction chaos is just about finished. Now the painting fun begins?!?
I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone shares. The link-up will be open for 5 days.
P.S. Happily all my orphans were adopted!!
