Two wonderful words to me! I have been practice sketching things that I see ,of course old churches pop out to me. Here are two churches that I’ve done.
Possum Trot Church,built in 1850 with scripture verses written on the inside walls because of a shortage of bibles.
Then the Summertown Methodist church built in 1881 and was in active use until 1995 even though there were no bathrooms or air conditioners.
And I’m still working on old vintage scraps. I had cut a stack of 3 inch blocks out not sure what I was going to do with them until I came across this block photo. Perfect for all my little scraps that I could get triangles cut out of . I did change it up a little.
Here are some of my finished blocks..
I almost gave up on making these for the blocks that have the muslin strip with the triangles corners were not matching up right for nice points,and I was ripping out way too much for my impatient nature.
I had to either come up with a fix or ditch the pattern…. here’s how I fixed it.
I marked the corner lines by butting the block up to the corner lines on the paper then the ruler to the straight line ,marked with a pencil… and it works like a charm.
Now I’m much happier sewing.😀
These are 1930’s to 1950’s fabrics
Have a great week !
