Quilts–what else?

This morning was my Friday Morning quilting group – what did we do besides eat apple fritters (thanks Janet) and homemade chocolates (thanks Shirley) we talked a lot and got a little sewing done!

I brought in Joseph’s Coat to show the progress – also I think most of the photos from now of the whole quilt will be taken there as I have run out of room on the living room floor to show the whole thing! I worked on the purple row this morning and this is how it is looking right now.  As you can see I have a lot of work to do on that purple row!


Shirley is working on a new top with fussy cut roses –


This is the center of what will be a very large quilt that Shirley is making.


After quilting group I did run over to the fitness center before I came home to work off all those calories I consumed but I know I didn’t succeed. I went and got cramps in both legs down the front of my calves! ouch, I had to try to walk that off a little bit – I’m not a runner – it happened when I was on a bike – I wonder what causes that, I have been waking up in the middle of the night with leg cramps lately.

Last night I quilted more on Star Crazy – now that I am getting close to the end of the quilt I have to remember how I quilted certain sections – I don’t feel like having to unwind the quilt to look.  I knew I had taken progress photos for the blog, so I went back and printed out some photos!  I know you can’t see the details I was looking from – from these but I can and that is what counts Smile


I worked more on scrap cutting last night and then a little more this morning – having everything laid out on the kitchen table helps – when I walk past or when I am cooking I tend to spend an extra 10 minutes or so cutting.  Not even a week and I am in the middle of box #3.  Maybe it won’t take the whole summer after all!
