Did I forget to mention that the strips were under 1" wide and these blocks will finish at 3/4"?
I have made many 9-patch blocks this size before, but it has been a while and it took me a couple of attempts to remember the techniques.
During the Olympics I spent a lot of time doing the stitching on this.
I'm not sure I want to border it the way the pattern shows, but I haven't yet come up with something that clicks for me. Currently it has a place on my design wall, reminding me that Spring is coming.
Wendy (theconstantquilter blog) invited us to join her in making a mini a month. Since I am inclined to do that anyway, I figured it would be fun to join in. My feathered star swap quilt ended up being my January finish, though I had intended this to be finished in January.
I have started my March mini, but it is a swap quilt that I won't show until the swap is completed.
It is time to get the sashing on Sasquatch. The last time I posted this quilt I said I still had something else I might do with the trees.
The photo on the left shows the trees as they were then. See how the trunks are all uniform in height? On the right I have shortened some of the trunks (I have just folded them under on the bottom while I decide if I like it or not). It adds one more factor of individuality to the trees, but I can't decide if it makes it look disjointed. Can a forest look disjointed? I know you have an opinion, so let me have it. :)
Until next time,
We are finally getting winter, and this was the scene one morning just before the sun came up over the mountains earlier this week.
