Welcome to pictures of the past weekend of furious cutting.
Welcome to pictures of the past weekend of furious piecing.
Yep, here are pictures to prove it.....
Cutting and piecing:
I made this cranberry orange bread.
Then we cut it and pieced on it.
This started as two loaves....
we really pieced, didn't we?
Just kidding; it did start as two loaves, but we shared, & then I took some to work yesterday, too, so this is all that remains at my house. I also made up some vegetable beef soup that was yummy. (We had it for lunch and dinner.)
Oh, yeah, the fabric part of the equation:
We cut charm squares for the Lil Twister pattern...We each made the sock monkey version. D made a bright/primary version. And I made a girly version with pinks and yellows and aquas. And as we cut, we cut at least two charm square kits at a time. For the sock monkey version we cut 4 "kits" of charms. And I packaged the extra up for projects at a later date. The time consuming part of the Lil Twister pattern is cutting all the squares. So that part is out of the way the next time we feel the need to make a baby quilt!
Here's more evidence of our cutting. Looks like a rat nest, huh? But really, just trimmings and thread snippets from a great day of production.
And now, ladies and gentlemen ,
for your viewing pleasure...
