Before I decided to make all the Kona Bay 6-pointed stars for that Silent Garden quilt top, I got two more of the Harpsichord blocks finished.
First a lovely little peach one.
The back, after pressing and grading.
And then a deep blue one.
And its back, after pressing and grading. I realized when I looked at the photo that I had missed grading one little seam so that’s now done.
I was debating whether I should start putting the Harpsichord blocks together into rows now but, as I think I may have more of one colour family than others, I think I may need to wait to sort out a good layout. Joining the blocks into rows and then the rows together is going to be fun as there will be loads of opportunities for continuous piecing.
Watching the figure skating at the Olympics is slowing down my sewing for sure as I can’t take my eyes off the screen while the skaters are on the ice. It is, without a doubt, my favourite event at the winter Olympics.
I caught Baxter in the midst of cleaning his paw.
While Jake, I think, would really prefer not to have the camera pointed at him quite so often.
