I missed posting last Friday so I have two weeks of work to post about today.

Folk Art Flowers
I have been using Kona cotton for the solids in this quilt and am not very happy with the way the pieces look after being washed. I always wash my blocks after stitching to remove the glue and starch. I am wondering if it is just the Kona or do all solids do this?
Since I have finished all the blocks I plan on making for this quilt I thought I would start trying to figure out just how I was going to get them all sewn into a quilt.
I can say it has not been an easy task. Lots and lots of Y seams and little empty spots to fill with fabric. I needed to make several filler blocks of squares, strips and half square triangles.
It’s like trying to put together a giant puzzle made out of cloth where the pieces seem to keep changing size. There has been much taking out and putting back, some do overs because of careless cutting but I think I may have this one all together by next Friday.
Be sure and check out Lori, Cathy, LuAnn and Karen’s blogs for there progress this week.
Until next time,
