Right after posting about the ruler I could not find, I found it. Since I decided to organize my sewing room that night, I set down in my chair, pull over a bag that I had patterns and books to see what was in it, and there was the ruler. Since I found the ruler, you know the organizing/cleaning of the sewing room has been put back until I can’t find something else.
And you know what else happen, after finding the darn thing, I realized I did not have enough of the fabric from the blocks to do this fantastic boarder I wanted to do. The Quilt God is just look down on me and laughing. I do have enough of the fabric to do a regular boarder, so that is what I will do, but that will have to wait another week or two because of something that has come up.
My church is having a Women’s Day next Saturday and the Trustee called me to say they will be having vendors and wanted me to vend. Well yah, o.k., but I have nothing to vend. So I have called in some of my quilting friends to see if they had anything to sell and might have one person. So if you do not hear from me, I am crashing on making purses and things this weekend and running in from work to work on stuff also. Tom has Mother’s Day baskets and other baskets that I can setup and I will take orders for anything else I might have.
Are you wondering about what ruler I have been going on about? Well, I will let you keep wondering about that ruler until I make something with it.
When I started this Tumbling Block, it was just a test piece, so it did not matter that I had the yardage, but just enough to make the block. What I have learned from this experience is that the salvage information on the fabric is important. I could look on the salvage find the maker and name of the fabric, put I did not have enough of it to find the red fabric, put I did find on-line the white/black fabric. You have stuff in your stash that you might have had for years and cannot remember where you got it from. I think I might have gotten the red from my girlfriends shop, put not sure. I will start saving the salvages or cut a swatch and write down the information on the fabric just in case I need more. At least I will try.
So until I blog again. The ever busy Slow Quilter
