Are you getting tired of reading about my trip to Paducah, where I attended the AQS Show? This is my last post on this subject,
until next year.
One of my favorite things when I leave Illinois and cross into Kentucky is this bridge over the Ohio River. It's the only bridge I've ever seen made of flying geese units. It's like it's welcoming me to the quilt show.
All the traveling I do during the course of a year is by air, except for this trip. When I fly I have to really limit what I can and do take with me. When I drive, look out, I load my car down and hit the road. This year I brought my sewing machine and my Sew Ezi travel sewing table so I could sew in the mornings and evenings in my hotel room.
I took my pineapple block project that I had cut then put in a project box. It was a great project to work on with its easy and repetitive stitching.
Good thing I didn't have a roommate, I pretty much took over this sitting area.
Here's my little pressing and trimming area.
My goal was to piece 10 pineapple blocks per day. I don't know where I came up with that number, but it took a lot longer to make each block than I expected, but I did manage to finish 30 blocks. And here they are.
My blocks are 6 inches and I'm paper piecing them instead of using a special pineapple ruler. Originally my goal was to make 100, I'm not done yet, but I am rethinking that 100 block idea.
