A week ago this afternoon I was just returning from a quilt retreat where I had so much fun with friends chatting and yes sewing!! I did actually get a lot done. This quilt, however, I only managed to piece a few blocks of. Why you ask, well I couldn't find a way to press that made me happy so I thought I would wait until I got home to search the internet more. This is a disappearing 4 patch(D4P) and yes I could get the pressing so the units within each block nestled but I couldn't get each block itself to nestle to the next one. So if anyone knows the correct pressing please tell me!!
There didn't seem to be any answer on the internet that I saw anyway. So some of the seams got twisted in the back, but who see's the back! I decided to let it go and just do it, done is good, LOL. Lots of steam and the quilting will make it behave :-) It is made of all scraps, some mine and some given to me by friends(thank you to them, I loved putting their scraps to good use), this quilt will be a donation one after I get the quilting done. The measurements come in at 48.5 x 64.5. I started with 5" squares. There are tons of tutorials on the net if you are interested in making one.
That was my main project last week, although I did work on a couple other things I will show you later this week. What did you work on last week?
Linking up with Oh Scrap and Freemotion by the River. You can get the link on my left sidebar to check out the eye candy this week.
