So Judy over at Patchwork Times has declared this weekend Quiltathon weekend. Well it would be rude not to join in wouldn't it.
I had a late start today as I had Yoga this morning and a few chores to do. I did manage a few hours sewing this afternoon though.
First up were some Bee Blocks
The patterns/instructions for these cat blocks can be found on Elizabeth Hartman's site HERE.
Next up was to work on a UFO.
This is Mini Galaxy of Stars, the practise block from Sleeping Under The Stars
I'm making it into a wall hanging and decided it needed a border
What have I let myself in for
Yep, a 3" border of 5 pieces, two of which are 0.25 finished.
The corners will be rounded so I've printed out some templates
I think I'll hand piece these. Something to do tomorrow. ( Add I've just noticed one of the templates is wrong, will have to draw them out again )
So after an afternoons work my UFO looks like this
Not much progress really. Hopefully I can get the other borders on tomorrow after another morning spent in the Yoga Studio.
I'll also be stroking the new fabric that arrived this morning.
I have no idea what I'm going to do with them but they needed to come and live with me.
Linking up with Patchwork Times for Quiltathon Day 1
