Well...I'm still pondering over a piece of ice dyed silk noil that has been calling me.....but not loudly enough for me to know what the heck I'm going to do with it.
So as I was digging in my stash I came across a bunch of hand-dyed fabrics that I've been meaning to 'do something with'. I can see you all nodding your heads....you know exactly what I mean, don't you?
As I've mentioned way too many times....patchwork is my least favorite part of the construction process of quiltmaking. And the older I get, the more indecisive and inaccurate I've become. So I've adapted a method that works for me......you fast patchwork quilters will cringe at the amount of time I waste....but believe me if I didn't plot this out (even as simple as this design is) I'd end up wasting far more time with constant ripping and resewing!
So as you can see....I sewed a few test blocks....just to confirm the direction I want this piece to go....then selected and cut the rest of the components, even going so far as to audition the placement of each block.
And...yup, I admit I don't chain piece.....instead I do one block at a time.....yes there is a lot of jumping back and forth from the cutting table, sewing machine, iron, etc...but heck it works for me.
I'll be like a jumping jack for awhile and hope to post the finished piece soon. Okay who will admit they also work like this???
