I'm just sewing out my stress.

2011 Project Week 1 January 7, 2011

For the first week I took the easy route for triangles.  I chose the Pinwheel Block.  I started with 5″ squares and drew the lines on them to sew. 

I have tried this with other blocks but haven’t gotten around to actually sewing. 

Lining up with the machine.

From there is was pretty easy.  Cut and re-arrange the blocks.  Don’t forget to press, it’s very easy to have lots of bulk in the corners.

After taking back to the machine and almost messing up the layout, I was able to get it finished.  Maybe I shouldn’t be sewing at 1:30 a.m. 

First Block Done

I could have done better lining up the center and points.  Triangles weren’t so scary this way. 

Could be better...

Here are some of the fabrics that you will see over the next few weeks. 

This was all in my stash.

Okay we are half way through the month of September.  So far I have avoided purchasing any fabric.  15 MORE DAYS!!!!  I can do this. 

The Holidays are really coming up quickly.  Today has been more of a maintenance day.  I took my machine apart and really worked to get the lint out, replace needles, and clean my area.  BTW…be warned if you Google images of LINT.  This was the best representation of what was inside my machine. 

There will be a sewing marathon on Saturday.  I wanted to be as ready as possible.  Here is a list of what I will be working on:

  • Moda Fruitcake potholders
  • Getting quilting designs on two quilts I have ready to go
  • Complete the top to a baby/signature quilt

The next two weekends are really busy and my first show is October 16th.
