Day 5: Starting to Sew Blocks Together

Starting to sew blocks together. Decision making. Some 100 year old quilt blocks which are in my mother's things and could be YOURS!

It's just so autumn like and those little blue sky squares just really stand out nicely.

I used to work as a Draftsman in the Navy and when the Blue Angels came to Norfolk, I did all the graphics for the airshows... I got more of my share of them when I was stationed in Florida... That is one thing I don't miss about Virginia is having the jets overhead from Norfolk, Oceania, and Langley.... but then again, it's a part of home and I do.

Yes I agree the hexagon shape of the patterns does not seem to correlate with the parallel patterns that you seem to have going on at the moment. Will be neat to see what somebody does with the pieces.

Yes, those blues seem to be popping more and more

Confusing pieces from the past - strange how that happens. I have a box to deal with myself. ;-) Will burden the next generation...

of COURSE you'd have a Bernina. It's like the MacPro of sewing machines. My mother had one that my step-mom promptly sold as soon as she moved in (grrrrrrrrrrrr). I'm limping along on a Singer
*shrugs*. Miss M., I can't imagine wanting to walk any further at a quilt show after coming across one of yours,...unless there's MORE of yours further down.

Non-Conformity FTW :)

I think you mentioned the Blue Angels in another of your videos a couple years ago. Yes, they visit me too. Whether one loves or hates them, they have become one of the signs of autumn for me in the Bay Area, and since I love everything about the fall, I've come to love them just as a matter of inclusion.

The flower pieces remind me of things my own grandmother used to sew into quilts. They are lovely in their way, but I agree with you--they aren't right for the quilt you're working on.

I'd like to see what you would do with a regular pattern. Would you pick a traditional pattern or work something else up yourself?

My next one will probably be a traditional pattern, or a regular pattern.
