Hi ya'll! I got one more 6" Farm Girl Fridays block done, the Farmhouse Block:
Note to self: don't use fabric with squiggly lines for windows again. The 6" blocks are so hard for me but I want to make the quilt with all the 6" blocks put together. I am so out of time to sew that I'm thinking of quitting the 12" blocks for now. I have 16 finished:
I just need to figure out the sashing fabric and the border. I'd like to do a border of red gingham but don't think I have enough. Decisions, decisions. I've been working like crazy on a special project for someone that sounded easy--haha. Just tie this quilt, she said. It will be quick and easy, she said. I need the money though. Here's the old quilt top that I'm actually restoring:
It is hand pieced and can't just be tied because the batting sticks out. I'm having to stitch the many, many tears down. It's a beautiful collection of old fabrics.
As you can see, the blocks don't match (I'm not fixing that) and the places that have pulled away have frayed. I literally have worked on it for a week and it looks like nothing has been done.
I don't think the owner is going to even be able to wash it because the fabrics are so fragile but she wants it done. Believe me, I did not charge enough-lol. What have you been up to? Hope you're having a wonderful weekend! Cheery wave from Bev
