This past week I spent babysitting my grandson Ben, which I thoroughly enjoyed, but was unable to go online. However I did manage to do quite a bit of piecing and am happy to say that my challenge blocks have now been joined in 4 rows of 3 blocks each. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to join these rows and finish the top - minus the border that is. I am quite fussy in this way that I like my points and seems to be as accurate as possible this is another reason why I prefer to do all my piecing by hand - I tried machine piecing large blocks or borders before and usually spend more time ripping the seems and doing it over and over again that sometimes it's quicker to just to it by hand :-)). I probably just need more practice.
I paid a visit to the blog of the Hexagon Quilt Along group just now - I love hexagons - and from there moved on and came across the blog and website regarding the Inklingo way of printing templates onto the wrong side of your fabric. There is a demo video on the site and after watching this I was sold. This really looks like something for me, using this method I might even try and make certain blocks by machine and actually get to make some of the quilts on my wish list. I hope you enjoy the link.
As my dear mother-in-law used to say "that's all the news for today" - good night and thank you for visiting my blog.
