Lee at Freshly Pieced isn't just hosting WIP this week...she's having a giveaway as well.
Plus, she's made the sweetest and freshest Log Cabin blocks.
Heading over to take a look at what other quilters are doing!
Last week I finished sashing and piecing my Scrappy Swoon blocks together. I'm so pleased with how they turned out. This will be a snuggle size quilt for us, so I'm just going to add white sashing and start basting.
Since I finished that up, I wanted to work on some Granny Squares that are all the rage right now. I cut 1.5" squares from a Charm Pack of Moda's Sunkissed and added some scrappiness from the stash.
Here is is in sandwich mode. I used basting spray and curved basting pins. I've quilted a "petal" motif into the blocks and like the way the spray helped keep the top in place, but as I went to straight line quilt the sashing, my walking foot did not like the spray at all and things went wonky fast.
So, I'm picking out the straight lines, I'll press it again and then baste using more pins and see if that helps.
This was quick to make and I love the happy, spring colors. This will hang in our front hall, which is being repainted and spruced up to some more modern colors. Kilz is my new best friend to help cover the navy blue that was in there.
Hope today is a good one for you and that wherever you are, you're loved, happy and sewing something fun!
