Good morning Sewists.
|I think the bovine question of the day is ".....what are we working on? Could we think about working on squares?|
We would really like to work on squares...We like these squares, OK?"
I have changed my mind about a lay-out for all those nine patch blocks. I want to alternate each block with a white square that has some machine embroidery. I have played with to-size embroidery at an event last year but didn't care for the fabric in the kit so I passed it on to a friend. She liked it. But I like the concept. I finished 12 blocks but it just was not me. I didn't even take pictures of them. Sad but true.
Onward. Using the Accuquilt Go cutter and the 6 1/2 inch die, I was able to make short work of the cutting process. I have 85 9 patch blocks and cut the same number plus a few extras for the alternate blocks. I am not sure about borders yet so I need to ponder that part. It will probably take longer to embroider the white blocks that I considered but that is the plan. I may use an open design and quilt the nine patches with that too. Need to consider all the options, because this was to be a simple nine patch quilt. Right.
