weekly update

What I’ve been sewing lately: besides some quilts I have been machine-quilting on my longarm (other people’s quilts, sadly not my own!)….

I am working on the next step for the Lollypop Trees quilt. Even though I’ve finished all the applique blocks, including the little ones for the borders, I now have to cut up hundreds of 2.5″ squares, and lots of rectangles, for the sashings!

I want to include as many of the fabrics that I used in the blocks, and in all different combinations, so as tempting as it is to cut and sew these together in strips and then cross-cut, I’m taking the longer route and actually cutting all those little puppies and sewing them separately :)
I’m even cutting what I can from all the odd little scraps that are left over just to include all the fabrics..

It can be a little tiring standing and cutting non-stop so I do a few at a time; three hundred done, another couple to go!
