What’s on the machine Wed. 1/18

Here it is Wednesday again. I loaded this quilt on Viqtoria today. It’s just going to be basted before moving it over onto Millie. I have no idea how to quilt it…….. Hopefully something will come to me.

I finished the cross hatching on this one last night. So it came off Millie this morning. I haven’t loaded another one on her yet.

Flying geese

I’ve been working on FG units today. I do the no waste method. In case you haven’t seen it I’ll share the steps I do to end up with 4 FG units and NO waste. Using 1 large square and 4 small squares…

I use a little glue and baste the smaller squares down on the big square, then I mark my lines…..

Sew on the marked lines and cut apart, press, then lay one of the small squares on the piece, mark and sew as before….

Cut apart and press open. You will now have 4 flying geese units and no waste.

Back to my geese now……

Design wall Monday 1/16

Here’s what I have on the design wall. I worked yesterday getting the rest of the blocks pieced together. I’m putting a pieced sashing between the blocks, which I haven’t cut out yet. Hopefully I can get the pieces cut and sewn this week. I don’t care much for this so far……………….

. I’m hoping I’ll like it better after I get the sashing in there.

I will also be showing my first finished UFO for the year. Yea!!! Each month we will have a prize for one person that shows a finished UFO. I wonder if I could be lucky enough to win both the quilt and the UFO prize???? Not with my luck!! But it’s always fun to dream!!

What’s on the machine Wednesday? 1/11/12

Since I am going to try to post more often. I thought I would share what’s on the machine on Wednesdays. This is what’s on Viqtoria, I shrunk the pantograph down to 5″ and I put it between the rows. I took part of the pantograph and am placing it between the blocks. It’s a sunflower pantograph and we thought since this is a Kansas quilt that would be great on it. After I finish that I will put it over on Millie to do the blocks.

I am still working on this one.It’s been on and off Millie numerous times so while I have a little time I am working more on it.
