|The final batch from September, 102.|
That's a months total of 902 bow ties. I recon I need about 1000 for a quilt, which I will have now. There are 500 or so left to sew up, I will do this before I start to piece the top, so I have maximum variety to choose from. I see these quilts as ongoing-its a good way to use larger offcuts, I add to the pile of sets every time I cut something.
Sewing stopped for a family emergency for a while, now back to normal I hope. Whilst I was away I sewed a few of the 1/2" paper pieced diamonds and triangles.
I watched a film and went through the crumb bin this week on my return. Some more 1/2" diamonds cut, a few hexies, the rest will be for a second crumb quilt-a lot of these crumbs are already sewn into pairs from the last one. I love this kind of relaxed piecing.
I have cut lots of black and white nine patch sets, along with bricks and squares for future projects. They are stacked underneath the acrylic table top, bow ties on top.
I have some brown hexie paper pieced blocks sewn up too and made progress with the random hexie blocks last week.
So, quite a bit achieved. Once the current batch of bow ties is completed, it's on to quilting some of those flimsies!
