I finished the center of another ornament tonight. As much as I hate paper piecing, one does get some fabulous little pointy pieces!

Just put the seam allowance guide on my Featherweight. It's much smaller than other ones I've seen. Works like a charm.

I have made my eight children Christmas ornaments for many years. I don't remember when I started, but then I don't remember most things.
This is really what I was looking for with those blocks. Now I can plan how many blocks I want for a large throw and get cutting. It looks like I'll have a lot more piecing time away from home, so I need to have a stack of pieces cut and ready to sew!
For the first time, I used my Featherweight exclusively and for a l-o-n-g time. It performed like the workhorse it is, and did it beautifully.

Here is what I have so far on my GFG quilt. In the picture, it is laid on top of my queen-sized bed. I took it with me standing at the head of the bed on top of the mattress.
After taking this picture, I decided I'd like it better if it hung down the sides with whole blocks. I hope that makes sense. I originally was thinking I'd just make blocks for the top, but then I'd have to decide how to quilt large, open spaces. I guess cross hatching would look nice. Well, I don't need to decide right now.
Until I need to make a decision, I'll just keep plugging away on the body of this large piece. I really, really like it. Each block is my favorite!
