Squirrel's Batik Sister - Bottom 4 -

Are all sashed and sewn together -

The last two blocks are on my cutting table -

Waiting their turn -

I was hoping to get these two tops in the mail to Frog Quilter by Friday -

But I forget sometimes just how long stuff takes me to do these days -

And that I need to stop and get something to eat every now and then -

And - oh, yeah - sleep - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Squirrel's Batik Sister - First block -

Is sashed on the right side and the bottom - ;))

On this one (and the Brother) I started with the block in the bottom right corner -

Sashed the right side - then the bottom -

The rest of the blocks are stacked on my cutting table -

In order according to my little sketch - ;))

I have a sketch with the blocks and sashing and cornerstones all labeled -

So I put them all on the wall according to the sketch -

Flipped the side sashings to the blocks - pinned them right sides together -

Took them off the wall and added them to the pile -

With the first block on the bottom -

And the last block on the top -

That way I can start in the bottom right corner -

And make my way to the top two blocks -

Which need the extra sashing on the top and far left side - ;))

I also pinned the labeled cornerstones to the bottom sashings -

Stitched them together -

And made a pile of those - on my ironing board -

So I can grab the one I need - according to my sketch -

And stitch it to the bottom of the block -

After I sew on the side sashing - ;))

I'm trying to keep BOB quiet -

Because she still wants to chase those other Squirrels -

So I let her and her CDO draw the sketch -

And label the pieces -

And make sure I kept them in order - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
