I've been playing today. With Dad's shirts. We all called him Gee. (Short for Gee-Daddy which is short for granddaddy). And coincidentally enough, today I decided to try my hand at Gee's Bend inspired piecing. Oh, this is fun! And it goes so fast!
I have all but finished the first quilt top from the shirts - just working on sewing the blocks together. Can't show it here - it's now a secret project.... :)
With all the excitement of yesterday (and the fact that I had workmen here from 10am until 8:30 pm), I never did make a zigzag block. Today I decided a mish mash block would be in order. I keep this bin on my sewing table and toss all the leftover half square triangle pieces in each day. So I grabbed at random.
And here is today's block.
No football game this weekend. I plan to spend tomorrow SEWING!!!! Another zigzag. Another Gee's Bend block. A bit of Sue Spargo. Sewing blocks together for first shirt quilt. And maybe even another project...
How many projects do you work on at one time? Are you a "one at a time" quilter, or are you more like me, a "the more the merrier" quilter?
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
