I do indeed plan to have fun with this quilt.
I'm going to make a "shopping list" of ideas (following Suze's suggestion to add a goldfish block) and see what kinds of blocks I can locate. Do you suppose there's a daylily block or a truck block that looks like a moving van? LOL
When I take my trip to Va next summer I will see if they have a truck that look like a moving van.
Thank you, Viola, for being a good detective for me.
I have already decided that I will use printed fabric only, no photos, in this quilt. If I cannot find a block pattern I will use a novelty fabric.
I have no deadline on this quilt. I will keep adding blocks until my design wall explodes.
it may not matter now, but regarding the foot on your LA catching on the appliqued circles, they have a new foot that addresses that. I love it so much I use it all the time unless I'm doing ruler work. It's called the glide foot. And it does glide over pretty much anything, including thick seams and applique edges. It's shaped like a little bowl with a hole in the middle. Pretty sure they make it for your machine as well. Though you may not be interested - it's $50.
Yes, that would have been perfect back in 2017 when the fused circles were giving me conniption fits.
When I put the quilt away in the closet with notes about using the Ernest B. Haight method of "ricochet quilting" and other notes about what the quilt was for, etc. I put a date on the bag indicating when I started and when I called a halt to the project.
Nice of them to think of that foot ... thanks for sharing the photo with me.,
I had NOT heard of One Only, but it looks fun.. I think your fabric choice will be perfect. Can't wait to see what you do...
What I did was I got rid of it.
I sent it on to Mary in Florida because I decided I didn't like it and Mary likes to finish my projects that I get bored with ...
Thank you for sending the quilt parts.
I have all of the blocks made. They went together so fast. I pressed some last night and they are looking good. I think pressing takes longer than the sewing . DH has a kidney appointment this morning. I have to go along so I can remember what the Dr says. Be back later.
WELL IT WAS BIG NEWS. He is going to the hospital today as soon as they let us know a bed is ready. His kidney is functioning 9 percent, his BP is 160 and he's having off and on chest pain.
My computer has lost all of my email 3 weeks ago. I have called att 6 or 7 times and everyone I talk to tells me something different to do to fix it. The last person said it was hacked and it would fixed in 48 hours -- 4 days ago. Not fixed.
Sending best wishes for your DH, Mary.
