Sew Sew Saturday

 Daddio's Serendipity quilt is getting the loop de loop treatment.

I was going to try something fancy and then I remembered that this is the top that had the issues with the seams coming apart since after fancy cutting the blocks you end up with only a 1/8 inch seam allowance. I loop de looped the heck out of all those little seams in hopes that they won't fray too badly. If they do, I am going to just call it a design element.

I also sorted out the paper pieces for the second row of the Dear Jane and finished the first, very strange, block. There are a lot of circular things happening in this row so it's going to be interesting.

I won't be sewing today though because I am going out to get the paint for the bathroom. We just may have a decent day for painting in the near future and I want to be ready if it ever gets here.


  1. I’m glad you’re getting to quilt the top. I think it’s beautiful. I’ll bet you are SO excited to be at the painting stage. You are so patient. I could never have waited this long. I want remodeling finished almost befor it’s begun.

  2. The bathroom redo is really looking marvelous!!

  3. Throw open the windows and pull out the painting supplies. Have fun!

    I need to learn how to do free motion quilting on my machine. Sigh. . .

  4. Once I get my sewing room cleaned up, that's what I'll be doing today!

  5. Hopefully those seams will stay right where you put them.

  6. Hooray hooray for the paint picking day

  7. The quilt will be fine-nice work on it.
    The bathroom will be so roomy and bright!
    Bring on the nice paint weather!
