Another five Harpsichord Quilt blocks are finished and pressed. First is the orange one that I posted on Friday – but now it’s pressed.
And the seams are graded.
A medium blue one and it’s my favourite of these five.
And a lighter blue one.
A green one.
A pretty red one.
On the weekend, I decided to count the completed Harpsichord blocks and how many are in the project box, ready to sew. The quilt calls for 154 blocks. I’m 99.9% sure I printed everything needed for the top when I began the project, but I wanted to check. I went over it twice and – well, I’m missing the pieces being ready for 36 blocks. That number makes me suspect there are three or four of the little glassine envelopes with the pieces for those 36 blocks lurking in other project boxes – in fact, I’d almost bet on it.
Finding that envelope of the Harpsichord Quilt pieces in the Stormy Seas is one reason I think that. The other reason is I remember so many times finishing a block for the Harpsichord Quilt and then moving on to something else. And knowing me, I probably had the envelope that had the pieces for that particular block and many others and just put it in the other project’s box. I kept doing that because I hadn’t found the continuous sewing sequence yet. I wish I’d really thought it through when I began making these as I may have had the Harpsichord Quilt completed by now!
I’ve made notes that are taped to the top of the Harpsichord Quilt project box in case I don’t find the missing pieces this week. Why this week? Because the Ribbon Flower collection will be coming out this week and I know I’ll be dropping everything as soon as it does.
I think Jake was just waking up from a snooze when I took this.
This is one of my favourite photos of Baxter – he has such a cute look on his face!
