Four Spring Flowers Sewn Together
Spring Flowers paper-pieced blocks, still to be trimmed to 8.5" x 16.5" unfinished
Here's a brief update on Spring Flowers quilt, which has a very quick deadline. After much preparation and planning, I started sewing the paper-pieced flower blocks last night. I got one completely sewn together, and one in three sections. I took them to the Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild meeting today as part of my show and tell. After working this evening, I now have four flower blocks sewn together. I'm waiting until all of the blocks are sewn together before I trim them to the desired size of 8.5" x 16.5" unfinished. I need to get eight blocks done tomorrow to stay on track.
I usually have the television on while I sew, but I can get distracted and end up watching TV instead of sewing. When I have a tight deadline, as I have now, I leave the TV off and listen to Pandora radio through my smartphone. (I used to listen to music on Dish, but I lost all of my music channels when I downgraded.) I get entertainment without distraction. It works for me.
