The cold weather is keeping me from spending much time up in the sewing room. Thus no machine sewing. Instead I sit in the warmth and do piecing. For no real reason I've made another Pine Burr block.
A couple of years ago, my friend Mrs. Nakazawa, gave me a couple bags of hand marked triangles that she had made for something. She thought I'd be able to make use of them but actually, as a machine piecer I didn't think I'd have the patience to sew with them. Hand marked, scissor cut. They would be too hard to work into a machine pieced quilt. I debated tossing the bags out... but instead stuffed them in my closet.
Yeah! The little triangles aren't the exact size I need for the Pine Burr block but with some minor marking and cutting they work just fine and there is a lovely assortment of fabrics! One of the few bags of stuff STUFFED in my closet that I've actually found a use for!
Thus another Pine Burr block has been made and I'm working on a third.
Dear me... This looks like it is trying to grow into a quilt.
