Well, how are you doing on your One Week, One Thing? Since this is Tuesday, perhaps I should make this blog post my One Thing this week! Just kidding...
I was fortunate last week that I had free time to sew. My weekly goal was to cut out and make 5 Farmer's Wife blocks. I am happy to report that I made 6!
Have you heard about our Marti & Me Club that is just getting started? We are introducing Marti Michell Perfect Patchwork templates and tools in the shop, and I just want to say how much fun they are. I don't think that they will completely replace the way I do all my patchwork, but they sure do work well with many different kinds of blocks. This week, I played with the Large and Small House templates.
Urban Cowgirl by Moda. I just love this fabric, and this large house will become a pillow sample in the store. The entire block and borders was cut out and sewn in about an hour and a half.
I also played with the small house templates using Habitat by Jay McCarroll. This is challenge fabric handed out by the Modern Quilt Guild of Dallas. The blocks are kind of mushy.... I planned to make two more blocks and then set them together, but I'm not sure if I will take this any further. However, the blocks themselves went together like a dream using the templates.
Amish With a Twist, arrived late last week, so I spent my weekend making the first 9 blocks along with some border components. It begins in March, so I need to hustle to get this baby finished and hung in the store! It's so pretty, and the solids are sewing up very smoothly.
What did you do this past week?
