Yes, I've been sewing again, and making good progress on the antique quilt remake. But BOY am I tired of these 2.25" squares with triangles on each side that make up the square in a square for the large pink squares! I think I'm down to the last 100, and here are some pics of where things are. Here are the last cut pieces of these yucky corner units...I'll be so glad to see the end of them!
And here are the various bits awaiting being put together. You may recall, this is just for the drop sections of the quilt. The main top section is already pieced and awaiting quilting, once I find just the "right" backing for this quilt. Maybe that will be a task for me while I'm in the U.S.
Oh, WAIT! I just noticed those large triangles in the middle left of the above picture. Those ALSO need those corner units on two sides...GRRRRRRRR. That means another 40 or so of those units to be pieced. Sigh! Will this quilt ever be finished? Gives me new appreciation for the quilter who made the original, by hand, probably taking much longer even than mine is taking!
BTW, I just did a quick count, and this quilt required 328 of those little pieced corner units!
In other news, we're meeting with our architect this afternoon to see the first preliminary sketches for the remodel and extension on this house. Can't wait to see what she's come up with, and how closely it meets our brief for what we wanted. We'll be able to mull over these sketches while we travel around the U.S. for the next month, and hopefully we can move right along to permits and planning upon our return. Yippee!!!!
