I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had either cloudy sky’s or rain for the last 12 days and yesterday the sun came out. Great mood lifter. Today it will be a little warmer and the Sun is beaming down. Time for a 30 minute sitting for some natural Vitamin D!
I have been working on some finishes! I finished Boo’s and Bat’s and it is now in a nice frame sitting on my desk in the house!
Another project that really took some time was putting the binding on 4 King Size quilts. The hand stitching will start soon so I will have more hand stitching to show off soon. The largest was close to 108″ x 108″. Such fun! If you wish to go down memory land on this project click here and here!
I am working another block for Moda Christmas Stitch A Long – getting there! Can you find the place where I left off something! LOL
I also found some more UFO’s to play with – working on color ways! To see the background on this click here! Here is the one I selected to work on first before I start my Longarm quilting practice quilt! The block is 25 1/2″ unfinished. My idea is to make 3 more of these blocks, put it together as a lap quilt and get it quilted!
I made one block identical to the above block. BUT now I have to “reverse engineer” the next 2 blocks to make the design I want! Talk about brain draining! I have the pattern that I used to make the above block but not in reverse. Happy Happy Day! But it is all fun for a quilter to have a challenge! I have all the squares and HST’s cut and ready to be sewn together. I would have finished today, BUT my favorite neighbor need some assistance with some paperwork. I need to go into business! LOL
For now this is all I have to show. I want to finish the Moda SAL by New Year’s Eve. That way I can say it took me a year and a month to finish the blocks – fast stitcher I am! LOL
Well, have a great week. Grocery shopping on the calendar for Tuesday – probably be lucky to find all I want to purchase and will probably drop $500! Stocking up before there is nothing left since the Railroad will be on extended Striking leave! How sweet it is to be able to stop a country in it’s tracks and give us a real good Recession! Have not had one in a long time – time all the youngsters feel how it is to be in one!
