quilting and quilting
Sunday was my charity group day and I pinned with help 5 quilt tops, left one for a fellow PP (portland piecer) to quilt and then quilted two of them before calling it a day. The reason I am rarely online and certainly not posting nearly often enough! is shown in the photo...I have the next row of blocks done and row 7 started. It takes me longer as I am choosing the fabrics every two rows of planning. Then I often decide I need more of a certain color and at this point I may be done washing and pressing fabric. I had to add more greens to the mix. Of course I have probably more strips cut than I will end up using-but being in strip form they will just get recycled into some other project. I have to admit, this pattern is very addicting-I am stitching each morning before work-and several evenings too. Last night we had to watch the National championship of the NCAAW-and it was sad to see Rutgers lose so badly. We were so rooting for them! Anyway, I am really on a mission to get these quilts done - even delaying doing my taxes I am having such fun stitching :-) - cutting into and using these brights-many I collected years ago..really make me smile and in some cases of only having a fq-they are entirely used up! I have a great bag of small, small snippets I am saving for more color play at a later date.
I can hardly wait to have this quilt on my bed.
