Preparing for Next Week’s Piecing

The last of the Farmer’s Delight blocks will be finished this weekend so I decided it was time to get some shapes for other quilts ready.  First up were some more of the shapes I need for the Summer Picnic Dish quilt.  It took only a few minutes to print enough for another 4 blocks.

While I was at it, I decided to print some more shapes for the Pastry Shop quilt. Again, it took only a few minutes and now I have quite a few ready to stitch.  There are, of course, other shapes that are already printed and ready to piece for a few other quilts but this way I have lots of choices.

It was cold again on Thursday and was even snowing a bit.  I keep telling myself it’s March and it can’t last, but it would be nice to see the end of this cold weather.

Smudge didn’t care.  He found a cozy spot to curl up.

As did Lester.

  2. What a wonderful picture of your ‘ready’ projects all cut up into piles.
    Do you have several sheets of FP for each shape so that when one comes out the printer you can insert another straight away?
    I tend to use one sheet per shape so have to do a lot of waiting between.
    I love the colours of both your projects.

  3. It’s wonderful that you have such a nice variety to choose from. That’s what I need to do, some prep work so I can just pick up when the mood strikes.

    Love Lester’s picture, it’s like he’s showing off that magnificent tail of his LOL.
