Starting Tapestry

On Veteran's Day, when we all sewed at Sherrie's, I worked on Tapestry. I will have to go back and see how long it's been since I decided to make this quilt. I know I have written about it here, so I just need to take the time to do it.

My apologies for the wonky, out-of-focus picture. I found it in my photo files dated February of this year. This is the sample made up in Old Town Fabrics in Chillicothe. Dear Kelly showed it to me, and I was smitten from the start. My kids got me gift certificates for Mother's Day, so sometime after mid-May, I used them for purchasing this fabric and pattern.

Anyway, I had it all ready: cut out and diagonal lines drawn. I'd matched up pairs and was ready to start making half-square triangles as the sewing began on November 11.

Another wonky picture! I am posting quickly, and didn't take time to photo edit like I normally would. Hold you head to the right and you will see it correctly. (Lame!)

I need 36 of these blocks, and as of last evening at around 8, I had 32 of them constructed. I would have continued with the last 4, but the Buckeyes (basketball) were on, so I needed to get downstairs to the game!

I will continue with the updates  - promise!

Today in my 3 composition classes, argument essays are due. I will have little time for sewing! There will be much grading, instead!

Happy Quilting, Friends!
