All Lined Up

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday and the day before, I had a little bit of time to sew for myself.  So I started on my Queen Size borders for my Glacier Star which I blogged about here.

The border requires more H Units and more curved geese.


You can see here I have all the H Units lined up and ready to chain piece!  That is right, with the method I used (Judy Niemeyer's) you can chain piece!! You can see my Paper Piecing Tutorial by clicking here.  It goes really quick.

 I am using batiks again for the borders, the same colors but different batiks.  
By the way, today is the last day of my sale on Batiks... $8.25 per yard... just click here.

I needed to make 8 H Units.


Here they are all done but not trimmed up.  Looking good.


Looking much better trimmed.


Just playing with the H Units.  A fun layout isn't it?  But this will not be how they are on the borders.  You will just have to wait and see.


Now that the H Units are done, I can move onto the curved flying geese.  I have them lined up and I did start piecing them.  However, I have to make 24 of these units.  It will definitely take a little longer.


Look who I had to share my sewing chair with, Pavi.  I think he looks perturbed that I had to sit on the chair at all.  However, I was perturbed that I had to sit on the edge.  One plus was, he did keep my behind warm!!


Until Next Time...

It's so much fun following your quilty adventures. And I'm lovin' Pavi, too! My own quilt kitty, Daisy, loves my chair, my keyboard, my papers, the heat register in my bathroom, my fabrics, my husband's lap ... really, anything that feels warm on her tootsies. Kitties will tell you what's good in life!

Reading your post is inspiring me to want to work on my H units for Total Eclipse-- I will be bringing them with me to the all-day-sew today. My plate had been overflowing lately with priority "things to do". I like how you played around with the border arrangement. See you later this afternoon!!

Very pretty. It just occured to me that each quadrant looks like a bird of paradise flower. The whole quilting world probably already realizes this. ;)
