Where i'm at

Wednesday i made the 9 patches & started sewing the rows. All was going well until i got to row 6. I decided to lay it out on my bed to check width against a queen bed. Looking closely i was wondering what was wrong. There may have been a few swear words when i realised row 6 was upside done. Some reverse sewing was in order & then i called it quits as it was quite hot.
I haven't been able to get back to it the last 2 days & as the temps are really soaring to the high 30's today i doubt i'll be doing much of anything today.

Last night saw me finish adding row 3 to Icecream Soda & starting to add row 4.
All the rows are pieced together it's just a matter of adding them to each other now. Just 5 left to go, then borders. Hopefully it will be a flimsy next week. :).

Happy Stitching,

It all looks great Jeanette. You have been going along well with all your projects & finishing up of UFO's. I have been doing lots of "unsewing" this week too.

lovely work - it is so frustrating to reverse sew... are those hearts on the bias too which can make reverse even worse to do... so hot...

I love both these quilts! The hearts are so sweet and the ice cream soda is stupendous. Does working on this quilt help keep you cool? Or just sweet? :)
