I was watching QuiltCam with Bonnie Hunter this afternoon and she got me in the mood to get into the sewing room just to complete a little something this evening.
So, I took a couple of these blocks (there are 30 total)
and cut out some sashing and made a cornerstone just so that I could see how they looked put together.
This will give you an idea of how this quilt is going to come together. I am really excited about it, but set it aside as I needed to get started on a knitting project with these yarns
I did two gauge tests and then ripped them out. The knitting then commenced, but I ripped it out again. I hope this isn't a sign.
For now, I am here.
I was going to rip out the last row that I did, but then screwed that up, so here it sits. I needed to get this started before this weekend when I will be attending a yarn shop hop. There's some hope that either I can figure out my mistake before the shop hop or while I am attending it. Then there will be no deadline for either of these projects. I can work on them at my leisure.
Problem is.....I am excited about both and it will be hard to put either of them down.
I am sure the knitting project will take longer than the quilt, but we will see. I hope I have learned my lesson about putting quilts away to work on something else. They can end up fermenting for years in a cupboard or closet and I really don't want that to happen anymore.
So....stay tuned. You know what I am working on. How about you?
