Little Progress

Diamonds Are Forever, Inklingo, quilts, William Morris in Applique-Floral Fantasy

Because I do so much by hand and work on numerous projects I always feel like I have little progress to report – but I did get two more granny squares done and the wall is looking full – I ran to Hobby Lobby yesterday and got the flannel I need to extend my design wall to the floor so I will work on that today and I picked up a couple more boxes for the fq’s as well and they are now all in the pretty boxes.  The block on the left is kind of crazy looking with the colors I picked out –


But once it is on the wall with the others – to me it looks just fine Smile  with a little rearranging I can get 8 blocks across I think – maybe 7 rows long?  not sure on that we will see – right now I am aiming for 8 across x 8 down – queen size no sashing – I might change my mind on that and do a narrow dark color sashing and see what that gives me –I have a batik charcoal or a fairly dark blue batik that I could use  – sashing maybe at 1 inch? like I say I am thinking about it.  If I do sashing it might be 7 x 7 in rows.  (and no dent in the 2 1/2 inch strip scrap box so far!!)


The 5th diagonal line on Diamonds are Forever is completely attached and pressed.


And I think I forgot to show the first corner completed on Floral Fantasy – this was finished last week and I am working on the second corner.


Most of us quilters are in the kitchen as well and Craftsy has just launched a Free Knife Skills Mini-Class! Grab your knives – go to this link — Complete Knife Skills with Brendan McDermott even if a class is free you will need to set up a membership account – you are not asked for a payment though — anything featured Free is free.  They have numerous classes on cooking.


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

    Looks like you did plenty to me! Free knife class? Is it because I don’t cook that I find that odd?

    Wow! Thank you for alerting me to the knife course! I really like Craftsy (mostly). And I have a drawer full of dull knives that making cooking no fun at all.

    Please don’t lure me into more Inklingo. I have 3 pickled rings on my wall and need to print more teeth…

    I love your blog, even though right now I’m on a knitting binge.

    I haven’t looked at the class yet – but you need to sharpen your knifes to use them well 🙂 LOL – cut cut dull just like rotary blades!

    I think your making great progress. There is a lot of work in those hexies. Your granny squares look great. Will you be putting sashing between them? I am marking a Jacob’s ladder, very small lap quilt. It will go in my hoop next. Hope you are staying warm.

    You get plenty done!!!!! Your progress is fab!!!! I modified my design wall today, too. It’ll work a lot better. I am amazed at how many projects you have in process. That would not be a good situation for me, since I have spent years “process”-ing with no finishes. Now I strive to get, at least, to the finished top stage!!!! Hugs……………
