I sewed Friday night, Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning- that made for a great weekend and some real productivity. I was able to put together my Made in Cherry. I really like this BIG star style. Mine came out to be about 80" square. I think I'll add a small outside border using the same background fabric and float it.
I used around 36 different fabrics. I will say that when it was up on the design wall the fabric looked a bit more mixed up, but as long as 2 of the same fabrics didn't end up next to each other I'm okay with that. I think I'll finish it off with a scrappy yellow binding. Which now that I think about it I should have cut strips when I still had all the fabrics out in a heap on the floor. I knew there was a reason I shouldn't clean up. See neatness doesn't always help - LOL!
And I got my T blocks sewn up for this month's Schnibble, Bibelot. Thelma at Cupcakes and Daisies has been lobbying to have the name of this pattern changed to "T stands for Thelma" I like that idea.
I still need to add the sashing and borders. I'm only doing 25 blocks since I just want a little topper. I stitched mine up from my stash of novelty fabrics and it has a theme. Can you figure it out?
Okay its back to the real world. Youngest son has classes and his volunteer job today so I'll be driving a bit. Have you seen the price of gas? $3.99/gal here in Ohio, it is crazy. And it makes me feel old because I remember gas for .25/gal when I first got my drivers license at 16. Yes, there were dinosaurs grazing next to the pumps - LOL!
