Thursday was guild night for the Capital City Quilt Guild. I took the opportunity to sign up for the guild sponsored National Quilt Day event on Saturday, March 18th. Received a square of fabric for the blotto block with a theme of Out of This World and decided to work on a block today.
I found a pattern called sky rocket in my Carrie Hall Blocks book by Bettina Havig – page 129. Selected some coordinating fabrics and planned out the block. The pattern uses templates and the sizes are not conventional block dimensions. I managed to finish the central nine patch, but my corner sections do not fit correctly. I am not a math whiz – that’s my older sister. So, I still have to figure out how to make the pattern work to finish my block. I think the idea is that the yellow sections look like rockets.
I also took hand applique along to the guild meeting and completed some applique on one of the heart blocks, but that’s all the stitching I accomplished this week. How about you? Accomplish anything more than I did; or struggling to find time to quilt? Hopefully next week I can show some real progress on my WIPs.
Until then…Happy Stitching!
