Vomit week #3
I'm going to do the link up for another week, if no one bothers linking then I'm not carrying on with it but I am going to keep making at least a block a week and posting them every Monday, it gives me the inspiration to get one done.
After not sewing all week because of bad back and then us all getting the dreaded sickness bug, I sewed a bit on Friday evening, I literally made 70 or 80 pairs of 2 squares, chain pieced. Vomit blocks seemed appropriate
Saturday afternoon I sewed them all together, within about an hour, perhaps a bit more I had 4 !!! YES FOUR !!! blocks done. If it wasn't for worrying about my back I could've sewn alot more. I might sneak in the sewing room tomorrow for an hour or so, slowly does it.
Here are the four blocks together
Fat Quarterly retreat
Not all of my squares match up, as the close up's show, does it really matter, I'm not keen on rechecking all the sizes, some of the swop squares are out and some even had selvedges that I didn't see until I'd sewn them in...will try pay more attention next time. It's only a quilt for me and I don't think the quilt police will come and get me.
Also, do you think it matters if the cars, trains, some of the obviously right or wrong way things are upside down, I am trying really hard not to do that but sometimes I can't help it.
EDITED The linky party wasn't working for some reason but i've fixed it now :)
