My Grandmother's Garden part 2
« on: Jul 24, 2016, 04:11:36 PM »
 :Wow: Well I got flower seven basted.  I'd have started putting it together but I didn't have the right color of thread.  I just didn't check out the box before heading out the door.

Row one is completely put together.  The last two pathway pieces were hard to connect to the flower petals because they were some of the first i made and I didn't give myself enough seam allowance.  And in one case, I glued the fabric to the paper piece.  That was a really bad idea as it stuck tight and now it will just have to slowly disintegrate as I use it because I don't have any more of that fabric to make another one. 

So I'll complete flower 7 and cut, baste, and sew flower 8 together.  i should be done with that by the end of applique group on monday.

I cut another 9 hexagons and I might manage to cut the fabric for flower 10 today I don't know.  Flower nine is already cut and sewn together it's just waiting for the rest of the quilt to catch up to be added to it.

Flower 7 is all put together and ready to be added to the top.  The pathway hexagons are all basted.  And flower 8 is wrapped around the templates waiting to be basted.

flower 8 is basted and I've begun sewing it together.  Flower 10 is basted and flower 11 is cut out.  So I think I'm good with this quilt while I wrangle the blooming nine patch.  Carol says there is a lot of sewing with that one.

And I've rearranged them again.  I'm embarrassed by how many times I've done that.

I can understand that. This one would look better here and that one there. It makes perfect sense to me.

I cut another 13 templates so hopefully I'll get something done on these.  It just got to hot to be in the craft room today.

I ironed another set of petals around their templates.  Now I have two flowers to baste.  Things are so out of order that it's hard to tell where I am compared to where I was.

Well the flowers are basted and I've begun sewing the new number 8 together.  I'd better start putting the flowers on the top or I'm going to have it all to do at once.  Maybe next week.  Right now it is to hot to go anywhere near the craft room.

It is so hot again today.  I did manage to recut a master epp template to wrap the fabric around.  I had made so many copies of copies that I was a quarter of an inch off and it was getting hard to match corners.  Hopefully I did it well enough that it will be easier now.

rofl,  That is great jenn.  You definitely got a smile off that one. 

I'm sewing the new 8th flower petals together.  It is a pain because this is one of those where the templates are not accurate and there is a lot of easing going on, praying too.

I cut the new flower 10 and ironed it around a new set of templates.  So I continue to roll.
