The pickled clams of one sort or another have clearly taken over! Thanks to Inklingo, these blocks are very simple to stitch — but without it, I can’t imagine tackling them. Another four of the pickled star clams were added this week, creating a new blue star at the intersection. It’s difficult to get a good shot without a design wall as it is growing rather quickly. I’m thinking it’s not going to take long to make this lap quilt as this one is being made with the 11″ clamshells.
A close-up of the little star shows that it too has a very gentle curve along one edge of each piece.
All the Pickled Ladies done so far. There are another 15 or so fussy cut/printed clamshells waiting for their arcs. On the weekend, I’m going to go through more of the shabby chic fabrics looking for others that will work for the fussy cutting/printing.
Thursday was a rainy, dark, dismal day and the kitties were snoozing. However, earlier in the week we took a series of photos of each of them on the windowsill. Lester was looking out the window.
