All 100 City Sampler blocks are done! Yes, I powered through the second half of them this past week, motivated by putting away all the Christmas fabric. I knew if I put it away before the blocks were done, it was highly likely they would never be completed.
This is the very last block in the book, along with mountains of fabric. Scrappy sewing is a messy business. See why I was motivated?
This is not a block, obviously, but I'm one quarter of the way through with the Coastal Ripple afghan.
Katja Marek. I'm using my stash of Denyse Schmidt fabrics, collected over the years.
I sure hope I don't run out...
Paper Pieces, which make cutting a breeze. Too bad I forgot about the whole mirror image thing. I only had a fat 1/8th of the stripe and it is really the perfect fabric. But half of the pieces aren't cut properly for the left side of the diamond. So another fat quarter is on the way. Bummer, because I really wanted to use only the fabric I have on hand. But even Mark agreed that a replacement fabric purchase was in order. And...lesson learned.
What have you been working on in the past week? Here is what Rene' has been up to.
