You Knew I Had To...

Yup... after cutting the pieced for a "I'm a Farmer's Daughter" quilt the night before, I just had to stitch some pieces together. I was so happy with this! Then I tried to pin the next piece to it and it didn't fit!!! What did I do wrong?

I finally figured it out... there are two kite shapes in the pattern and I stitched these together using the smaller one. Turns out this template is only for the setting triangles around the outside edges of the quilt. 

So I put it aside and cut 8 pieces with the bigger kite template.

This is how far I got yesterday - hard to tell, but this is definitely bigger than the first. So fun! And a great way to use some old, old scraps - many of them quite ugly on their own. I want to cut out several more blocks so I have little kits at the ready when I'm in the mood for them.

I'm paying for all my many hours of hand sewing hands are a bit sore this morning. It happens. I always listen to my hands! They are asking for a couple of days of rest. Today I need to do lots of computer work anyway. And I'll spend some time with my lovely BERNINA, too.

So what else is on the schedule? Putting sheets on a couple of beds, lunch with a friend, trip to the bank.... yada, yada, yada.
