Blocks for today...

I really know that I have to move along on some other projects, but these things are so hard to set aside. Today's blocks...sorry for the differing picture sizes.

Top: Panic, pg. 157 Diary
Bottom: Writing Home on the Cars, pg 171LL

So far I've done these with cutting actual sized pieces, not paper piecing. I almost changed the rotation of the red and yellow in Panic, then decided to leave it as it was designed. Both blocks required measuring in the 16th's of an inch, so beware and have a good ruler!

Left: Wretchedly Cold Weather, Pg. 199LL
right: Guerrila Warfare, Pg 175D

Wretchedly Cold Weather was harder by far, than any block so far and should have been paper pieced at least in the center, but I measured well and cut the very small pieces and they went together well.

Happy sewing! Hubby's home sick and I'm going to do needlework!

I don't have these books, so I'm a little lost. At 4 (or more) blocks a day, how long will it take to make your quilt? How many blocks are there?

What kind of ruler has the 1/16" marks?

Mary said...

I can't believe how many blocks you are getting made. I have the books but have decided not to try and start them now.

Writing Home on the Cars is just lovely. And Southern Notes is very striking. You've obviously been measuring *very* well! :) Lily

It is so amazing how I don't notice a block until it is really made up! Oh yours are all so wonderful!
