Greetings from South Texas where it is 51, overcast, a light mist in the air, and cold! – Finally. This is my kind of weather and so much more palatable for my 30 minute walk in the mornings. Today is a day where one just would like to coil up in the recliner and read a book, but I am on a mission, so not time to relax now.
I am ‘almost’ finished with RSC 2018 Sampler. I finished the setting triangles yesterday, but made a boo boo (Gretchen warned me) and turned the center strip the wrong way! Darn! It was ripping time last night. This morning I fixed that and ordered more of the fabric for the borders. I always purchase my batiks from Web Fabrics in Virginia. I have traded with Carly since 2004! I belong to the 100 Club which provides me a 10% discount on all purchases! Cannot beat that! She has a booming on line business now and a store in Purcellville, VA. It is a wonderful Quilt Shop to deal with.
I will have a 1 inch dark blue border to frame the quilt and then a 4 inch light blue border to complete it. I am so excited to have this one completed on time.
Now on to cutting the border for York Lodge! York is going to be a large quilt as the measurements are currently 73″ x 88″ and I will be adding 10 inches in borders.
Have a wonderful week and I am hoping that this cool weather continues for the rest of the week and that we do not go back to the 90’s until next summer!
