Design wall 9/19/16 Crown Royal block

Another Monday is here, so I’ll just check in quickly with an update on the Crown Royal blocks. I got everything cut (thanks to my Accuguilt cutter!) I decided to go with a simple block that can be sewn together pretty quick. I need to make 36 blocks for the quilt. I started sewing a few of the 4 patch units together last night so I could lay out a block to see how it will look. 

Pretty simple block to make. I think it’s going to look great once I add the sashings and cornerstones.

That’s it for today. Need to get the long arms fired up. To see more walls check out www.patchworktimes.com

Design wall 9/13/16 Crown royal squares….the beginning…..

I planned on getting some machine quilting done today between bus routes, but when thunderstorms move in plans get changed.😩 I keep both LongArm machines unplugged when there’s lightning going on.  Anyway, since I couldn’t get any quilting done, I decided to start ironing the Crown royal bags that I’ve cut apart. I ironed 49 bags, but decided to only use 36.

After I finished  ironing all the pieces, it was still storming, so I started cutting them into squares and strips to make 4patch blocks.

Next step will be to cut the other fabric I’m using but that will have to wait for another time. The storms have finally left and now it’s time for me to leave on the school bus.

Anyway, that’s it for my design wall this week. Joining in with http://www.patchworktimes.com

Hope the storms are gone for today.
