What’s under my foot?
Welcome to Put your foot down, I hope you’ve has a successful sewing week. After 4 days of non stop sewing due to a long Labor Day weekend, it has been hard getting motivated to work this week. It was a very productive sewing weekend for me to say the least. Of everything I had been working on I am now caught up and still ahead of schedule, on everything. So I picked the commissioned quilt back up and made a lot of headway on it. I’ll be starting on the center of the quilt very soon which will come together quickly. Until then, 24 Pascal’s triangles complete. These are part of the border blocks.
And then there is the Storm At Sea quilt using the SAS die from AccuQuilt. I LOVE this die. Until now Chimney Sweep aka Granny Square block had been my go to for an unexpected quick finish quilt. But this quilt was so quick to cut and piece, it looks great, and is gender neutral. I see many more tidal waves on my horizon.
One of my sisters stopped by over the weekend and cut blocks so she can duplicate my finish. I think she finished piecing the blocks Tuesday. Sixteen 9″ blocks and sixteen 12″ blocks. She will be bringing it to me for quilting and I can’t wait to share it with you all. Her taste and mine are very different. Oh and I can’t forget, my tutorial is coming later this month on the AccuQuilt blog.
The back is always my favorite to look at first. Enzo doesn’t care which side is facing up.

Shares from last week
Becca from Pretty Piney shared her Star Crossed Plaid quilt and a wonderful memory. I especially enjoyed reading her post.
Who doesn’t love hexies? Anyone with the patience to hand stitch is a hero to me. These wonderful (tiny) hexies are from Karen at Quilts…etc.
If that’s not enough to impress, you should go check out her hand quilting project.
