Yesterday I was doing a lot of reading on the porch – the humidity was amazingly low considering all the rain we had the day before – I was still on the porch at 85 degrees and only came in the house as I had other things to do.
I did get 17 blocks done and added up on the wall to the Butterfly Parade – the rows are up there a little slanted but don’t you all wish we had grid design walls available. I think I have seen them somewhere but really they probably cost a bit and I can do without. 81 blocks up here now!!
Still a long way to go before it fills up the wall or even comes close. This will probably end up being baby size. I think I have enough cut for 60 more blocks – maybe 3 more rows in each direction? something like that. I think I will go for a crib size – about 44 x 60? something like that. Right now it is about 36” square (finished size) I am linking to Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict – if you think you might enjoy a Christmas quilt a long that starts in the middle of July check this one out – Sarah has made up a Christmas quilt – 76 inch square and is a hosting a 12 Days of Christmas in July – she will give instructions along the way and today she has the fabric requirements listed and what the pattern looks like. I am also linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts where Amanda Jean shows off a very roomy tote bag.
I rolled Wagon’s West down and the dark sashing near the bottom of the frame is the half way.
I really do not keep up with what the top selling quilting books are as with no quilt shop around I just don’t think about it – what are the top must have’s right now that you all like? Do you have an on line source that shows best sellers? I don’t really “need” a quilt book right now – but I wonder what is really popular must haves in your opinion – just to see what others like.
