I had planned to have my quilt top finished by Saturday, but my plans for sewing Sunday night kind of changed when I dropped the sewing machine pedal on my pinky toe! I didn't break it(at least I don't think I did), but it is all swollen and black and blue. My sweet husband carried me all the way to the couch and got me an ice pack. Unfortunately, my foot hurt too much and I had to keep it raised and iced for the rest of the evening. I hope it's not broken, I'll be able to tell in the morning whether or not I can move it. You ask why I didn't go to the hospital? Last time I broke two toes (two weeks before my wedding), I went to the emergency room and they did not do anything for me except give me a bill. LOL (Update on my toe this morning, it is not broken, but blue and very sore. Luckily I don't need to wear shoes until our midweek service at church)
I finished all of my butterflies and Dresden plates. Pippi had to check them all out of course.
I wanted to make a patchwork sashing. I cut all my strips 2 3/4 inches wide.
Instead of measuring it and trying to do the math, I just laid them out on the blocks to see if I had enough. I laid all the blocks out so I could see them, of course my babies had to help. This is the sheet I bought for the back of the quilt.
Next I sewed all my strips together in two sections.
Then I trimmed it up and cut 2 3/4 strips again.
Of course I ironed everything as I went. Then I cut 24 16 inch strips, four for the top and 20 for the bottom of each block.
I was going to sew it all together Friday after appliqueing my antennae but I couldn't figure out how to get my feed dogs back up. Duh, I just had to turn the wheel! LOL
Very busily quilting (and limping) along!
