Pantone has released their color of the year for 2017
I have been sewing 4 patches for Clue #3 of En Provence
. I developed a system for making the 4 patches. It isn't so much the color I wanted to get in a certain order, it was the nesting of the seams. I found that finger pressing to the dark with both dark at the top, I could rotate the one on the right and it would nest, and feed the top seam to the top.
After a while it became a rhythm. press, press, flip, and sew, and repeat.
I want to feed them this way so that the machine helps to push that nesting a little bit tighter.
I have finished 168 lavender and purple 4 patches for Clue #3
The quilt in the Bonnie colors is up to date. I need to do Clue# 3 for the civil war version.
At this point, I am going to wait to do the civil war version. For one thing, I am sick of 4 patches - I have done 610 of them. And I am afraid to cut strips from my fat quarters, and then need a bigger size than I have left, later, for other units. Civil war colors are not what I have on hand in scraps. sigh....

You've made pretty good progress. Those Civil War prints are going to make up nicely.ReplyDelete
I'd be tired of making four patches too! I usually do projects like that as leaders and enders so I don't bore myself to tears.ReplyDelete
