Perhaps this should read....the tourists are coming, the tourists are coming.....
Leaf peepers throng to our mountains in the fall, and happily there seems to be a pickup in sales at Woolworth Walk.
I say goodbye to these two quilts.....Growing Strong is a favorite piece of mine. If there had been a place to display it in our home, it would have stayed there!
Japanese Influence #3Sales tend to generate a lot of enthusiasm on my part to get cutting and stitching. A dear friend gifted me a nice supply of Asian style fabric. I've said it before (many times) patchwork is my least favorite construction style. But heck, I have all this fabric to use......
I'm VERY persnickety about accuracy & workmanship. In order to take advantage of fabric pattern designs, I literally cut each block with an eye to where they would be sub-cut. Yup...they are all placed on my design wall to make sure I don't mix them up! FYI - The 2nd and 4th rows are spliced on the bottom and right side of their blocks.
Not all blocks are sub-cut the same way.....so each of the setting strips and squares have been pre-cut. I worked on only 1 block at a time...no chain sewing.....I'm way too easily mixed up. Each of the block pieces were arranged before stitching.
Of course I still found myself having to use the seam ripper. I guess my attention roamed too far as I was enjoying some Project Runway binging at the same time.
