April’s First Sewing Session

4 04 2013

Yesterday, I had an evening without kiddo – he’s at Grandma’s through tomorrow because Daddy’s going on another business trip and someone needs to be able to shuttle kiddo to and from school while I’m at work. So, obviously, I sewed.

Because that’s what I do.

Last night was a swap block night. I needed to make two more granny blocks for April, and at least two blocks for the Scrappy? Sew Bee It! swap. I ended up making the two granny blocks, and four blocks for the other swap.

Liz requested blocks in which the center-most square and the outer blocks were comprised of solids or read-as-solids fabrics. They should coordinate with the print used for the middle ring.

I worked slightly backwards, and pulled my solids first, using some of what I have leftover from Technicolor Fields. Then I found multi-color prints that coordinated with those solids.

Nicky requested blocks based on instructions that she posted on her blog. Since I cut from yardage, I didn’t follow her instructions. She also requested brights fabrics, a total no-brainer for me. I decided to go half and half with these, as to how the values laid out.

I still have one more block to make for the month of April. I’m hoping to get that churned out tonight, and then get more progress made on Frankenstein.
