I think I am done with the quilting for Butterfly Parade – I could possibly put in more, I’m going to look at it for a day or two and see if I feel like it. I do like it as it is right now though so I probably won’t and just move on the binding.
The back – rectangles instead of squares – something different. If I do more quilting it would be to make those rectangles in to squares but it really isn’t necessary is it. The rectangles measure 1.25 x 2.75 so that should be enough – I am using wool batting and it said 3 inches apart is needed. For those that use wool do you think I should put in one more line? I have’t used it much.
Wagon’s West was rolled down the other day and I got more done up to the sashing on the last row of blocks, I’m about half way across that 2nd to the last row right now.
And one more hexie flower finished for Handful of Scraps. I had been working on it here and there over the last couple days. Somehow I counted wrong and had more hexies basted for this one then I needed – 4 more of the brownish color and 2 more of the light blue – I will incorporate them into another block later on. I have a lot of neutral hexies prepped right now so I think next I will attach the section on the top that is pinned to the wall and then start the next big neutral area to the right where the orange diamond and the new hexie flower are. Right now the widest parts are about 32 inches x 34 inches.
Storms did come through Arkansas on Thursday late afternoon in my area, the wind was horrible the trees were swaying this way and that but nothing broke. All the trees and their branches are still there. Our area had the bad wind for about 15 to 20 minutes, very dark, but very little rain. Power went out in numerous areas around us but not on our road. Off to the east in the Little Rock area about an hour later (yes it moved that fast for 85 miles) a tornado was sighted, lots of power outages and tree damage but it sure missed our small area once again – knock wood!
