My One Week, One Thing pledge continues.
This past week I accomplished both goals I set for myself. The Amish With A Twist (also know as the Black Beast) is bound and hanging in the store behind the checkout counter! It is beautiful, if I may say so myself. We have opened up 12 more slots in this program; if you are interested but haven't signed up yet, we've made room for you!
I also took time this week to play with a new block. The "Granny Square" is all the rage on the modern blogs these days; however, the block tutorial has you make this block completely with squares set on point, where you then cut off the edges to square up the block once you are done. However, this method results in bias edges all the way around the block. Not my favorite, and certainly not ideal for the novice quilter. So, since I have been playing with Marti Michell templates, and Set B was used is February's project, I decided to see what I could do.
My stepson and his wife are expecting a baby and the shower is in June, so I plan to use this block in a quilt for them. My goal for next week is to get at least the 12 blocks made for this quilt.
And last, but not least, I am still plugging away on my English Paper Pieced Double Diamonds. I have made the half blocks for the top and bottom edges; and have sewn the blocks onto one of the edges.
I still have to pull fabrics and make the corner blocks, but looking at this photo, I COULD leave them off and have 45 degree corners! Should I add corner blocks to make a square quilt, or leave it 'as is' with an interesting corner treatment? Help me out and vote!!
What One Thing are you going to do next week?
