I have an unexpected trip coming up next week, so I am working on getting small projects together for which I won’t need my studio (such as it is.)
The other two are really close (one has one more seam and the other I have to insert the circles.)
Unfortunately, I need a machine for these, so I am going to sandwich them and take them along in the hopes that I can use my mother’s machine without either of us breaking down.
I have a number of applique projects I am taking. I have two Dear Jane triangles for the Christmas Dear Jane project that I have had prepped for a while (and found a little over a week ago.) I may cut out another one.
Finishing Spring Fling has got me up for completing the other Dear Jane swap quilt and for that I need 14 of the outside triangles…I think. I may change the layout again, though.
Applique is a great take along, and I will also have my Fallingwater Block with me. I really only have the black frame and some embroidery left on it. Unfortunately, I suspect I won’t feel like working on it during my trip. I think applique might require too much concentration.
So, I am starting a new project…a hand-pieced project: Seven Sisters. It will be scrappy in that the stars will all have two different fabrics in them (unlike the picture.)
I’m planning on using a black background so make it more like stars in a night sky.
I think this will be a good traveling project because the pieces are fairly small and I can cut and pre-mark everything. Plus, hand-piecing is great when you have limited space (like in an airplane.)
