Here's the project in pieces.
Here is the result of the last two days.
Sigh... they make pinwheels look like child's play.
There are pros and cons about having to do two blocks in different colorways. They are great for experimenting with pressing and getting the points right. At the same time when you are finished with one, you have to make that block twice!
Anna and I also made a 'quilt' for her princesses. The original pillow, glued onto cardboard(?), and the fabric for the bed was kinda yucky. I had her try a 1/4 inch seam. That was hard. I wanted to say I can do it, but that's not the point, right? She did a great job holding the fabric and even used the foot pedal. We sewed a rectangle and then turned the backing and linen inside out. We made a pillow and added some stylish ribbon perfect for a princess.
I have been working during naptime, but even a sneaky 'sleepy' noodle can wake up, unbeknownst to mom and dad downstairs, tiptoe into her sleeping brother's room and have a little fun.
