Over the past week or so, I’ve been stitching these. In the space of about an hour, I can stitch close to 20 of these little 2″ Drunkard’s Path units. There are 66 of them in this photo. Of the 832 needed for the quilt I’m making, I now have 519 made. Now there are only 313 left to make. If I were to just stitch these for the next week or so, I would have them all made. But I doubt that I’ll stay that focused.
The box containing the little blocks is getting full.
So I decided to make one of each of the two 4″ blocks that will be used in the quilt top to see how they looked. These are such fun to put together and oh, so fast. It takes only a few minutes to join the four 2″ blocks for each of the blocks.
Pressed and seams graded.
I realized last week that I hadn’t been grading the seams so, over the past few evenings, I’ve gone through all the finished 2″ blocks and graded the seams. I’m saving all the bits as they will be great for stuffing a little kitty bed or a pincushion. Kitty bed first, of course. Now I’m glad I have been saving the bits from grading seams on various projects as I have almost enough for a kitty bed for Baxter already.
Baxter went for one last canoe trip before the weather gets too cool. Seems he had some observers on the shore.
Baxter takes his quilt inspection duties quite seriously. Mr. Q.O. captioned this one, “What’s this, then?”
