I finally finished up all 25 of my Home Lovin blocks and started assembling the quilt top! I’m SO excited and so happy with how it turned out! I shared lots of pictures on Instagram if you want to check them out… otherwise I will be sharing here on the blog soon.
Though now that the bulk of that project is done I did end up putting it aside to tackle 3 of the quilts I had previously cut out and have had sitting patiently near my sewing machine.
Today was one of those days where I basically took the day off from life and glue basted and sewed the day away! It was fantastic!
I woke up super early this morning (as in ~5am early), and instead of my usual stay-in-bed-for-a-couple-more-hours-convincing-myself-that-I’m-still-resting routine, I decided to get up and get started! This is where I was at by about 8 am… a stack of about 200 blocks glue basted and ready to sew, and the stack in the bottom front that I finished glue basting during the course of the day.
I did get most of it sewn today. It seems slow going, but the blocks are very simple with only 6 sections at the most, so once I’m done it’s done!
I love chain-piecing my paper piecing! It took a few years to get over the tediousness of it, but now it’s the only way I feel like I can get things done is to just push through it! Plus it feels meditative to be in a rhythm of doing the same thing over and over again.
All the templates get bunched up from the “chain piecing”. 🙂
I’m making 3 different quilts using my Rockstar pattern – 2 will be similar designs, but the 3rd is completely different. 2 of the quilts will be for my children, and 1 for the couch in our formal living room. We’re all pretty excited to finally be getting these made. 🙂
