Started last week Friday – finished this week Wednesday – not bad for a little quilt like this – done by machine for a change! Measures 69 x 69. Now it will sit aside for a short while – I need to decide if I will machine quilt straight lines or if – yes – if I will hand quilt it. I know I said I was thinking of machine quilting straight lines but some how I just doubt I will!!
This could be done in my hoop – it is not too big for that. Six to eight weeks and it would be done. A little bit of outline quilting – yes I’m talking myself into it already aren’t I.
You can’t see the corner blocks too well – they are a dot print
This kind of print is not something I really use that much of – not my kind of fabric if you know what I mean but hey – it was free!! I had to make something cute out of it.
We had some rainy weather move in about an hour ago – it was 96 degrees – it is now 73!!! It feels downright cold out there now after being so hot all the time – it rained, it thundered, the wind picked up and we got 3/8 inches of rain!! Boy we sure need more badly but I’ll take this any day. I have the windows open now that the rain stopped – the ceiling fans on full blast to pull in some fresh air – it gets kind of stale in the house after awhile when the A/C is on all the time. The news said yesterday that the near by town broke a record by having 37 days over 100 degrees this summer – we are baking here!
