I had a very productive weekend. It started with piecing the second of the 2 Parson Gray quilts.
I tried to save some time by sewing the blocks on continuously to a long strip of fabric. I still haven't decided if that saved me any time or not after trimming them all. I also finger pressed my seams open, which definitely saved me some time while sewing.
I also used the tape method instead of drawing all the lines on the fabric for diagonal lines for the corner squares...much quicker.
I trimmed up my blocks and saved those corner triangles.
I laid everything out on my design wall to figure out placement.
I really like how this one turned out.
Remember those tiny triangle scraps from trimming the corners? Here's a fun mini-quilt made out of them.
Here are both quilts side by side.
Saturday evening, I found out that my college roommate had her baby 6 weeks early! I was planning on starting on her baby quilt next week, but that got moved up for obvious reasons. I finished the top yesterday and have the backing laid out ready to be pieced. I need to finish this quilt and send it on it's way before I can finish the two quilts above. I'll be working like a mad woman this week to complete this one.
I don't know if I've said this before, but I just LOVE the swoon pattern.
