Let’s Bee Social #75
Aside from sewing the Little Blooms quilt blocks I showed you yesterday, I am also keeping up with my house blocks for the Hillside Houses quilt along.
I finished blocks 8 & 9 yesterday.
And sewed the completed blocks into their rows.
Then joined the rows into a 3/4 finished top.
Although I love this design…. And using solids is always a pleasure….
I am not used to pulling out fabrics each week, cutting what I need for a couple of blocks and then packing them back away again. Each block contains part of a house and the next block above contains the rest of the house. So I have to be careful to save what I need for the next block in order to complete that house. And to make sure I don’t use up that piece while making the Little Blooms.
I prefer to be able to cut out the whole project. Then start the piecing. And finish that project before moving on to the next project. But that’s just me…
Looking forward to getting this top finished and choosing a backing.
How do you operate? Do you like working on multiple projects at once?
How do you feel about quilt alongs? Fun or frustration?
