So what was done yesterday – these hexies for Handful of Scraps are now basted and ready to stitch.
One set of stems for the Postage Stamp border were cut and fused into place ready for stitching.
These Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins were made late in the day to bag and put in the freezer for breakfast – that should last me awhile. I had one last ziplock bag of mashed pumpkin to use that was in the freezer from last fall.
Wednesday night at the quilting frame I got all but this last block in the row quilted on Winter Wonderland – I finished it last night and rolled the quilt down – 4 rows left to do!! I am linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict today and Fort Worth Fabric Studio and Crazy Mom Quilts.
The purple fossil fern fabric was put in the sink with hot water to soak, changed the water out about 4 times to get excess dye out of it – I think it will be ok now to use for the backing of The Final Frontier when it is ready to go on the frame – of course I forgot to soak the indigo navy blue that is used for the sashing so the whole quilt will need to be washed 3 or 4 times to get all the excess dye out of it anyhow – but at least one of them was soaked! Usually I don’t have too much trouble with dye – even if it isn’t soaked before hand if I wash it several times most of the dye comes out then and doesn’t give me a headache. As long as it comes out before the quilt gets in the dryer it is usually manageable!!
NOTE on yesterdays post: Some of you are under the impression that I said I was going to make that quilt that I shared yesterday — I never said I was going to make that quilt – the one with half inch hexies – about 20,000 of them!!! I was just sharing – so don’t y’all ask me when I’m going to start it LOL – I know I like challenging quilts to make now and then – but hey I’m not sure I have enough life left in me to make that quilt!!!! If I would ever happen to decide to make it y’all will be the first to hear about it!
