Such A Nice Day


Wow it was nice yesterday – I think it got up to 64 degrees out here in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.  I didn’t do near what I planned to on the quilting front as I was outside clearing out some brush instead.  But towards the end of the day I did get busy and got the sewing machine going on some of those new blocks that I am working on.

Six blocks done.  Right now I do not know how they will all come together.  If I will just put them together row by row, maybe some sashing in between – maybe not? someone suggested the Bento Box quilt pattern – cut each block in quarters and mix them up and sew them back together again – hadn’t thought of that one.  We will see.  I don’t know how many blocks I will end up with, I’m horrible at math and hadn’t even thought to figure that one out!


I also got some hand piecing done on the Joseph’s Coat quilt – 5 more segments to piece and then I can start to put the row together.  I have gotten this bunch pressed and put back in the box – I will work on the rest of them today I hope. (not all of these done today of course-this is from a weeks worth at least if not going on two weeks with as busy as I was last week out of town).


I didn’t get around to quilting on the frame until late, not much progress to show on that one.    I will work on the Farmers Wife quilting on Thursday night at group and on Friday morning – maybe I will have some progress to show then.

(I am compensated for any purchases made through my links.)

    So nice to hear your weather is pleasant because so many are having severe storms.
    Best of luck in deciding the setting for the blocks. I like the Bento Box idea.

    We are not as warm as you only in the 40 here in Iowa but still a very nice day. I really like your blocks on your new project. Cut them up if you want but I really like then as they are.
