You are going to be seeing a lot of this quilt in the next half year or so – I hope you won’t get sick of it I love it, I think this is one of my favorite quilts. I don’t know if it is the design, the summery colors or what.
Patchwork of the Crosses getting on the frame yesterday!
Here is a link from several years ago that shows my whole process of getting a quilt on the frame if you want to look.
Of course yesterday afternoon I had to sit down and start to quilt – Melanie was sick yesterday and couldn’t come help but we have all been taking turns of not quite feeling quite up to par since we moved her back to this area last weekend and we found out later that their friend that helped in the move was sick that evening and for a good part of the week – we are all lucky that we seem to have been just “not quite 100%” but not really sick,sick if you know what I mean.
This is the thread I will use – it is King Tut variegated #917 I used this for my Going In Circles quilt a couple years ago and have more than enough left over almost 2 whole spools – the quilts are similar in color and I really like it.
Here is the section on the first border that I started on – I am marking with the blue pen and will spray it off as I go – I know I won’t have bleeding problems with this quilt.
I went out to collect the mail today and just had to go back to take a photo of the pine trees – icicles hanging on the tree – the sun came out on Thursday and started to melt things but the temps never got above 23 or so and therefor a complete melt didn’t happen! It was supposed to get to 32 but never happened. It was odd to see them and I have not seen them on trees often like this.
Friday it actually got up to 23 by 5 PM! and snow is expected tonight – enough already – What will Saturday be like, if Melanie is feeling well we plan on going to a book signing that my sister in law is having at the Vintage Book store in Russellville for her book that came out several months ago – His Promise True – lets hope for nice weather – it is supposed to finally get in the high 30’s at least maybe even 40+!!! I of course wonder if it will even get in the 30’s! I need to get the groceries while we are in town – a busy afternoon.
I am working on the binding for the Bride quilt and hope to have it done soon – I am writing this on Friday and will be working on the binding while watching the opening ceremony’s for the Olympics which start soon – it is long so I just might get done – who knows.
