Today, I managed to complete three more blocks from Block a Day.
These will be used in my Tribute quilt.
Using the Accuquilt improves the accuracy of the cut, and makes things move at a better pace.
Every Sunday, I would pick up some pancakes from Jim’s or Bill Miller.
I would also get some coffee.
Mom would pour the coffee into pretty cups.
I had some bird fabric left from a quilt I had made for myself.
Mom had green in her kitchen, and I found some green fabric remnants from a quilt that I made for one of my sons.
The orange and pink are also remnants from quilts I previously made.
Mom and I both like violets.
I am terrible with plants and flowers, and I would end up taking my violets to mom so she could nurse that back to looking healthy.
The small triangle die on my Accuquilt Go! is smaller than the one called for in the pattern.
I used the this die and added a third row for the tree to make it look more like a Christmas tree.
Christmas Eve was spent at mom’s house.
Mom had different sets of Christmas decorations which included Victorian, Blue and Silver, Red and Gold, and Tradtional.
I liked the traditional the best, so I tried to make this block reflect mom’s traditional tree.
I had to add two side strips and one top strip.
So far, my portable design wall is working very well.
It is just the quick reference I need when I am choosing colors and fabrics for the blocks.
I also have a template that I save on my computer.
This is part of the template. The screen shot didn’t capture the whole page.
I have one more day to get some blocks in before I go to volunteer at the school.
There are 17 more blocks for the Tribute quilt.
