In my last post, I mentioned I had a two week trip for work to Denver and was planning on getting some sewing done. Well, I DID! A wonderful lady named Darcy lent me her sewing machine and I was able to put a small dent in this quilt that I started almost 10 years ago. Here are some photos:
This is Darcy's Sewing machine. She said it was the first purchase she ever made on credit! A sweet little machine that ran like a charm.
I managed to sew together 128 melon pieces for this quilt:
So, while 128 pieces may sound impressive, I have a total of 508 melon pieces to sew up!!
Not a great photo, I know, but this is a small representation of all the pieces I have sewn together. If I don't hurry up and finish this, I will come up with some missing :(
These are the three types of pieces I have sewn together so far: Arc A, Arc B, and Melon .
I am convinced it will be beautiful when it is done - just want to get there!
Meanwhile, I need to finish this one up first:
Again, not a great photo BUT - aren't you impressed with how organized I am??
This is a photo of the made up pattern. From the book - P.S. I Love You Two
If you are a reader of my blog, you will recognize the pattern. My sister and I made a full size one out of the Christmas fabric we bought last year. This will be the Fourth time I make this pattern up!!
All ready to start my therapy!
Notice the Starbuck's cup to the right? Yep - gotta have the 'ole caffeine!
Oh, and the vacuum cleaner in the background is to remind me once in a while I need to clean.
Til next time. . .
