Nothing I can show you today but one that I made some years back that I would like to revisit. It is called "Kris' Three Patch" and was featured in Template Free Quiltmaking by Trudie Hughes, published by That Patchwork Place in 1986. It was a fun quilt to sew and looks a whole lot more complicated to make than it was.
Today was a walking morning for DJ and I. Just before lunch I had an appointment to meet with the fellow that wants a queen/king t-shirt quilt made for his son along with two wallhanging sized SEC (football, Jan, not financial, LOL) quilts for two of his clients. In between I had four other stops to make in and around Anniston--combine those errands when you can, right?
Vaughn had a pile of t-shirts laying on his conference room table when I got there and the SEC stuff all sacked up for me. The design will change to something more like THIS and cut to accomodate an SEC logo t-shirt so I wont have to piece the lettering this time. So he and I and then Mom has a little confab about which sides of the shirts to use and what color neutral to use for the sashing bits. (like khaki pants though I don't know how good that will look with the gray shirts) Oh, and it will probably be closer to king sized. I don't have to quilt it, thank goodness. A long armer is lined up for that job. I may well be asked to make one to raffle for the school come spring--forewarned, I guess. The SEC ones, I can handle on my own home machine.
But first, finish up the round robin. I have one side done and on the quilt. Somehow I had to add one more square to what I thought was needed--a slightly smaller one. It is only a 1/4 inch difference so I doubt it will be noticeable. (DJ couldn't tell which one it was when I showed him.) How did I mess up the math that much?? I was pretty sure that this thing was square this time but 2 1/2 inches off? It also occured to me yesterday that the horizontal sides were NOT supposed to be mirrored. I may have overcut some of the half square rectangle pieces. I don't care so much about my own fabric wastage but I DO about hers since there was not a lot of it leftover. I really don't want to go to Birmingham this week for more fabric--now, next week may be another story if I ever get this thing finished.
I am behind in reading and commenting on your blogs right now---bear with me, I'll be back. Supper is already made--pasta salad using some of the Bernstein Cheese and Garlic Italian dressing that Pam sent me--so except for eating dinner and stretching breaks I have a good stretch of time to get back to foundation piecing. But, first I have to tape them together and cut them out--what DJ calls cutting out "paper dolls" TTYL
