This has been a great week for productivity for me and my quilting projects. Even with all the pounding going on with the new roofs. They should be through by tomorrow (Saturday). I hope when they start on the Studio I can still work with the noise.
I have completed my RSC 2018 blocks for June – almost did not get them done.
On to York Lodge I feel now that I have mastered this block. I have completed
4 5 blocks – only 26 25 more to go. It is taking me less time now to make one. Here are the steps I go through (minus the strip piecing part)
I have discovered that if I draw a 1/4” line on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th pieces that things go together great. Now this does not mean that I do not have to rip a few to get them perfect, but this is much easier to pin than other ways this technique can be mastered.
Here are the
4 5 blocks that I have completed (without the Corner HST’s which will make the block Squared)
I am now enjoying making this quilt! So much fun to work with a different color and background. At first I did not like the Orange Block, but it is growing on me.
Have a wonderful week-end! Hot here and by Sunday the roofing project will be complete and it can rain rain rain!
