I have been in an absolute sewing slump this week. I haven't sewn a stitch. Life has been so busy, and I am tired at the end of the day. Really, really tired. We have been watching a lot of Netflix Instant this past week. North and South and Bleak House- two of our favorites. We watched both of these a couple years ago, but they are sooo good. It has been fun watching them again.
However, last Friday I did finish up the last of my Summer Sampler blocks! I am pleased on the whole with how these turned out. This was such a fun quilt-a-long. I learned how to paper piece and stretched my skills quite a bit. I loved having a new block to look forward to every few days as well.
This last block, The Kansas Dust Storm, took me over five hours to make! Just for one block! Luckily, I am really pleased with how it turned out. ;0p
The only block I did differently is that I switched the Six Pointed Star for this block, The Building Block. I was in a not thinking mode that day, and I wanted something easy. I think it blends in nicely because there are a lot of stars in this quilt, and I think it helps balance out the Greek Cross a bit.
And then there is one of my great "helpers". I have to distract him with toys and run into the room to try to take pictures before he notices I am gone because this little guy follows me everywhere.
