It’s been a long while since I’ve blogged and truth be told, I was so sick I didn’t miss blogging, I didn’t miss my longarm or domestic machines, and I didn’t miss fabric. For someone who did all of those things daily, that’s quite an admission. Although, towards the end of my hospital stay, I did do a bit of hand piecing. It was a UFO project from a couple of years ago.
The pattern is called Chain Link by ivan and lucy . My copy of the pattern is back from 2014. I couldn’t find it on their blog, but they do have the pattern in their esty shop.
The new year saw me gaining my strength back daily. I now feel like my old self. I attended my first guild meeting. I even did blocks for our BOM draw. Because of a low turnout due to bad weather, the draw for Jan will take place at Feb meeting…… Sure would like to win these. It’s a great way to use up your scraps.
I sewed a dog bed up on my domestic and gathered up 2 green bags of fabric and batting scraps to use as filling,
I sewed the chain blocks together,
This will be a modern asymetrical layout. White on both sides. I plan to quilt the chain design in the great amount of negative space I will have.
And I finished off that charity quilt that got left on my longarm back in early July ( 3 bleeps ) with half a row to go.
In July my machine needed to be sent to Utah for an upgrade. She came back in September. Due to my health I wasn’t able to have her installed properly in the home until the first of January. 6 months is a long time to be away from quilting. I’m certainly rusty with my technique, but I know I will improve as I get more quilts done.
Hopefully I’m back to posting more regularly.
