Sunday/funday

I had a most productive day yesterday. I am definitely on a roll, Bridget is working over time. I made some blocks for the Home House Pantry group. I also made some letters, what fun! I should not have sewn them together. I won't do that again and I could take these apart if I need to.
























I followed Tonya's tutorial on letters. Making letters is really fun. It is much easier and very intuitive. you are almost doing a mental exercise as you make them.

This is the first quilt I made in Sept, 2006 before my grandson was born. I still love it, particularly the technique of the wonky squares.














Going to vote today and taking my 90 year old mother. I also have to take my beloved featherweight in for a tension adjustment.

I rather enjoy thinking through how I could form the letters... I often find myself off sewing them before consulting the tutorial and realizing that there was a better way (fewer seams) but they work.... :-)
