Not a lot of sewing

I managed to get another of Lori's blocks finished. I like to make the HST's by sewing two squares diagonally together on either side of a centre line and with so many fabrics to choose from I try to make enough to have a complete round with no doubles. The bonus to doing it this way is that I then have enough for the next block, as making them this way yields two HST's from each one. I then press them flat, trim  to size and join them together for each side with chain-piecing, so that all four sides are done at the same time. So this is number 5 and I also made the centre 6"block for the next one. 


A few nights with the Winter Olympics, Friday at Somerset and today at the Applique Guild meeting I've made a bit of an inroads to the 4th centre square of Coxcombs and Stars. Not ready for a photo -yet but it's coming along.
I also have Foxtel [Cable] on my IPad and watched all 13 episodes of Season2 of House of Cards. I did thoroughly enjoy it and may watch it again before this offer runs out on the 13th March. The only downside to this, is the fact that I can't sew while my IPad sits on my knee.  I'll have to work on that.  LOL!    Have a good week everyone.

  1. I like the colors you are using in the Lori block. It caught my eye right away.

    I discovered that I do have the Coxcomb pattern that you are making. I would no longer have those particular fabrics and would need to find something else that would make me happy. But someday!

  4. Great looking block. Love the colors you have used. I am currently watching House of Cards and enjoying it too. How about a iPad holder sitting on a table next to your chair.
