Anxieties Block

March 01, 2010 8 Comments

Hello I can honestly say I know why this block is called Anxieties. This block has been a bit of a challenge, I am pleased to have this one finished. Foundation piecing is the only way to go with this one. Here is a picture of my Anxieties block. I have also finnished Conscript Law. This block was a little tricky also, you had to be aware of placement with all the little pieces. I found that numbering each section helps. Here is the picture of my finished block. I now have another 117 blocks to make, but whose counting. Is anyone else making this lovely quilt? , I would love to hear from you. Sharon

Hi Sharon…thats a lovely block…must have taken a while to make. I have never been too crash hot with foundation piecing, but I love to see things people make using that method.

Oh my gosh, it gives me a headache to think of making it, no wonder it’s called anxieties. I think I would have a panic attack, so no I’m not making it. I hope the next 117 blocks aren’t anxious too!!!! LOL!

It's been such a long time since I posted, I am going to start today off with a post about the Zig-Zag border I am making for my Roses quilt.

There are many ways to make a Zig-Zag border, I have chosen to use half square triangles. 

Here's how it works.

I cut 2 1/2 inch strips from a dark print and a light print then matched the light and dark print fabrics with right sides facing. I used a half square triangle ruler to cut out the pieces. Taking them to the sewing machine and sewing them together with a 1/4 inch seam. I like this method, it's fast and requires very little trimming.

 The Roses quilt is coming along nicely, I have been squeezing in time over the weekend to stitch the applique Roses onto the third border and I can see the quilt starting to take shape. Today I hope to have the third border stitched in place and start prepping the fourth border of Roses. This will complete the center of the quilt. From there I have a vague idea of what will come next, I am hoping it will come clearer to me as I progress.

This morning I am sewing the border fabrics together for the top and bottom borders of the Roses quilt. I have selected and range of tone on tone prints some light and some with a little bit of colour to give a bit of interest. I love to mix up the fabrics, using a large selection. Something I find helpful when piecing the strips is to pin at least the end of the seam so the fabrics don't shift while you are sewing and end up with one end longer than the other.
