I'm always amazed by the amount of sewing folks get done over holiday weekends, I sew the least on the weekend and if it's a holiday weekend, even less yet, this weekend was no exception, but I do have some QCR updates to share.
As I finish attaching the corners to my main blocks I throw them on my design wall for storage and to admire.
For some reason it occurred to me to put the blocks on point, and then I decided I liked this look, so this is what I've decided to go with. I guess I'm making Metro No Lattice. I think it has a cathedral window vibe.
Ramona is going to town on her Metro Rings project.
Here is her start on a baby blanket, I sure hope it's a girl, but I'm loving those pink arcs all the same. She told me the curves were super easy, that she just needed to go a little bit slower than what she usually pieces a straight seam. Keep up the great work Ramona!
Here are Mickey's Metro Lattice blocks. She mentioned in her email to me that she's going to move those sashing blocks around and not match them to their blocks, she's off to a great start.
Kristen at Meadowbrook has updated her blog with her Metro Lattice progress, her blocks look great. Kristen did not have a positive history of working with curves but is now sold on the QCR, click here to see her progress.
Vicky at LA Quilter is also making great progress on her Metro Scope blocks, once she got that brown paper off the back of the ruler, lol. (click here)
If you're sewing along too be sure to let either Lisa, Nicole or myself know. You don't need a blog to join the sew along and the only goal is to be done by labor day.
