End of Week update..
The 30 quilt blocks are pieced and pressed, ready to be cut in 4 quarters, rearranged and reassembled into thirty new blocks, which will be then sewn into a quilt. I already have border fabric, which I hope will work suitably and frame the quilt. It looked good with the uncut fabric, but sometimes the blocks seem to look differently when all put together.
I also played around with spinning thick yarn. I got thick and uneven yarn, thick, dense and mainly even yarn, and finally I got a fairly even, fairly light, sproingy, fluffy yarn that I am happy with. Who knew spinning thick yarn was so difficult? I cannot for the life of me think what I would use this for, but it's good to know that I can indeed spin a variety of thicknesses.
