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!

Hi Lizzie
You’ll be glad to know they are not all that intense. I think I am getting hooked on tiny pieces. LOL

Last week we had a scheduled power cut for our area, meaning I could not do any quilting on the Roses quilt. This was the perfect time to pull my fabrics out and sort through them, folding them nicely and organizing them into colour baskets. I have been meaning to resort them for a while now. This was a great way to get reacquainted with my fabrics, finding all those precious fabrics that just make my heart race. Giving me ideas for my next project, another journey! Benny decided that would be fun and he loves to help, I think he secretly wants to be a quilter too.

I am now starting to quilt the Roses quilt. I am really enjoying quilting this one, today I am stitching in the ditch around all the applique parts to make them stand out. I am using a very fine 100 weight polyester thread. A selection of Wonderfil invisifil and Superior Micro quilter. I am using a selection of colours to match the colour of each applique shape.
