Yesterday and the day before, I had a little bit of time to sew for myself. So I started on my Queen Size borders for my Glacier Star which I blogged about here
The border requires more H Units and more curved geese.
You can see here I have all the H Units lined up and ready to chain piece! That is right, with the method I used (Judy Niemeyer's
) you can chain piece!! You can see my Paper Piecing Tutorial by clicking here
. It goes really quick.
I am using batiks again for the borders, the same colors but different batiks.
By the way, today is the last day of my sale on Batiks... $8.25 per yard... just click here
I needed to make 8 H Units.
Here they are all done but not trimmed up. Looking good.
Looking much better trimmed.
Just playing with the H Units. A fun layout isn't it? But this will not be how they are on the borders. You will just have to wait and see.
Now that the H Units are done, I can move onto the curved flying geese. I have them lined up and I did start piecing them. However, I have to make 24 of these units. It will definitely take a little longer.
Look who I had to share my sewing chair with, Pavi. I think he looks perturbed that I had to sit on the chair at all. However, I was perturbed that I had to sit on the edge. One plus was, he did keep my behind warm!!
Until Next Time...
