Well, despite an interesting week (I got my second dose! I fevered up and had sludge for brains! I got better!), I managed to get a bit of sewing done.
Another Antique Tile for my collection,
and more cake stands (polka dots!)
and even more cake stands!
I love that cherry print for the background on the right. (You thought from the post title that I was talking about real cherry cake, right? Nah. Just cherry cake stands.)
And I got rows and rows of Glitter put together.
Here's the halfway point -
and here's all of the rows, absolutely overwhelming my design wall.
I had a moment's
concern when I was sewing pairs of pairs together (after making the eight trios that I'd need for the ends of the rows) when I had this pair left over. This meant that I'd counted wrong by two, but was it two up or two down?
It was a real relief when I got the sets of fours sewn together and they came out even. While I freely admit I could easily be off by 2, I was pretty sure I wasn't off by 6. Sure enough, the rest of the rows went together just fine, and I have two little blocks that will probably end up on the back. (No, I'm not going to save them for seed for another Glitter. Much as I love these blocks, I am SO done with making them!)
I sewed the top two rows together before quitting for the day.
While I was sewing blocks into rows, I decided that I was going to settle for "close enough" when trying to match those points on the edges. We're talking a bunch of weird angles, y-seams, and some really funky bias here. These blocks absolutely refuse to square up politely.
It was even wonkier when it came to stitching together the rows. For those top and bottom very pointy points, I realized kiss-me-on-the-mouth accuracy was never gonna happen - let's just go for fist bump vicinity.
I'm pretty sure that's the only way I won't end up gibbering in the corner by the time this thing is put together.
