My pinwheels and I are back in dusty Arabia… and no I am not taking a picture of them in the dust, because they will get all icky and dirty… you will just have to imagine it. Suffice to say we came back from the Dead Sea to 37C at 7pm and a layer of dust on everything in the apartment.
After some essential dusting (Nina and my sewing table) I got my priorities right and worked on the companion block to the pinwheels… a white pintuck block….
Hmmmm, I thought I had taken a picture of them on their own, but it seems not. You can see them further down in this post laid out with the pinwheels.
After I finished 12 pintuck blocks, I got distracted with a UFO – one of the table runners I quilted before I left Oz. I looked at it and decided to turn it into two little bags instead…
As I said on Instagram, if they were bunnies, they would be lop eared… I think maybe I did the handles too long! But I like them anyway 🙂 So I finished one UFO… by turning it into two things.. I think it still only counts for one though!
This morning I got up bright, and not so early, to go to Nora’s. We sewed until 3pm and got lots done. Of course I took the pinwheels and pintucks… Here they are laid out on the shop floor (because mine was too dusty, remember):
By the way, I’ll be doing tutorials on both of these blocks soon, after I teach a class on them at Nora’s. Mostly so that I don’t forget how to do them 🙂
I took Nina with me and the two of us managed to sew all the blocks together:
And you’ll have to wait till the borders are on to see the whole quilt 🙂 I must say it is quite heavy with all the folded fabric in it.
I also worked on another quilt and forgot to take photos… next time… I guess it is good that I am too busy sewing to take photos, right?
Well, that’s all for now folks. I will leave you with a pic our last evening at the Dead Sea… and a kitty cat that came to say hello to us:
