Happy Wednesday! After a rainy Tuesday, I'm hoping to see some sun today.
On to another WIP Wednesday report...
Resurrected: I was tidying up the sewing room (I don't actually sew there - it's become primarily a storage area) and came across a growing stack of piano keys (2.5" x 10" rectangles). I had calculated that I would need 150 to make a border for the Three by Three swap nine patches. More than 100 were already cut, so as I filed away some fresh fabric, I chopped off a strip. In no time, I was ready to stitch.
Sewing them together into borders went fairly quickly. Monday morning, I figured I'd slap them on and be done. Not so much. That's when I became reacquainted with my seam ripper! I had put one side on backwards. rip rip rip. Then I wasn't happy with the corners. rip rip rip.
|Please ignore the junk on the end tables. People live here.|
I'm mostly happy with it, but it's too small to fit on my bed. I need at least another 4-5" all the way around. I could add another row of nine patches and white, but I wish they were inside the piano keys. rip rip rip? I think I'll make a bunch of nine patches and see where that takes me.
Back Burner: I played with all of my 4x5 blocks this week. Yay! Then I piled them up and put them away. boo.
Now off you go to see what else is happening in WIPland...
