It’s been a slow to start to my sewing week, with one thing and another, but now the dice has been rolled and I’m raring to go again. This week I’ll be working on number three from my List of Six. Which is – the Horse Panel Quilt. You may remember that last time I worked on this, it didn’t progress much at all. But never mind, I’ll try and do better this time around.
I’ve been working of strippy borders with nine patches in the corners. Spotted on Pinterest, this idea seemed a great idea to border a panel.
Sadly, it hasn’t all been plain sailing. You know what they say “measure twice and cut once”. Goodness knows how I got the measurements so wrong but I cut several strips of cream much too short. Just as well I have plenty of this fabric to spare.
I’m also doing a “new to me” leader and ender project at the same time. I wanted something simple and easy to use up some of the 2 1/2 inch strips I have hanging about. So I sewed a little house, to see if it would work. With 2 1/2 squares to make a door, flip and sew corners to create a roof, it is quick to sew, especially with a pile of pieces all cut out ready to go. My little houses don’t need windows or chimneys, I’ve decided, they are fine as they are. They will sew up nicely into a child’s donation quilt in the future. Perhaps I can find an easy pieced tree block pattern to go with them as well?
