Floor time flimsy!

Again, keeping myself busy while the floors were being installed.

Day 3 of installation:


There is a LOT of chain piecing with this quilt.


Time to trim the half flying geese square.


No cutting board, so I had to do this the old fashioned way!


You go where you need to go....no, not that go!  Although it would be quick and easy.  I only had access to my bedroom, and this was the only free outlet.


Have you ever attempted partial seams?  It really isn't difficult.  Try it!

 
Remember what I said about a lot of string piecing?


Completing those partial seams.

Day 4 of installation:

Sewing the rows together.


And...ta-da!!!  The day that the floors were done, so was I.  They beat me by about 45 min.


This is only a flimsy.  I am really loving the way it turned out.


Again, this pattern is from "Another Bite of Schnibbles".  It finished at 76 x 92.  The name is "Roundabout".

Thank you for sticking with me through my floor time adventures.

Now it is time to paint and get all of our belongings back into their proper place.  Can't wait for our new furniture.  Our dinning table/chairs will be delivered Sunday.  The rest is on order, I am thinking it will be here about April.  I'll do an update when all is said and done.

Linking to Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and Can I Get a Whoop! Whoop! at Confessions of A Fabric Addict and TGIFF! at Amy's Crafty Shenanigans and The Library Project at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts!

I love that you were sewing in your bedroom and en suite! That's what I do all the time- no need to ever leave, really! Well, maybe for an occasional meal! Your flimsy is gorgeous!

Wow, you made amazing use of the time while your floors were being installed! Your quilt top looks very pretty, but the construction looks terrifying to me!! xx
