Ok now that the part of the Olympics are over that I am interested in it is back to hand quilting. But first would you believe we had a high briefly of 72 degrees yesterday and by 6 PM it was 70 degrees and the rain had stopped – Windows opened for the evening!!! Always, always love to have my windows open and the A/C turned off. I won’t get too excited as it might change but it is possible that in about one week we get a cool front come through taking the nights down to 62 or so – August in Arkansas – rarely does that happen. Well be nice if it does.
So The Final Frontier was rolled down on Saturday morning I believe it was and I was quilting on it Saturday night and again last night.
Another angle –
More neutral hexies were basted and yesterday afternoon I put a Netflix movie on and got two more short rows whipped stitched in place and added to the big piece for Handful of Scraps.
Close up of area – at first I was concerned over the amount of darker neutrals in one area, but then I said what the heck – there are going to be a lot more spaces like this and the original quilt in the pattern had a lot of neutral areas like that too – so no I am not changing them. So if you feel they need to be changed – I don’t want to hear about it LOL – this whole neutral section is pinned to the wall and not attached to the main piece
A whole lot of progress made on the scrappy bricks, another day or so of machine sewing then I will need floor space to work on rows and then stack the rows up to begin more machine stitching.
The box is storage of neutral hexies – a good size box for that.
Hope everyone had a great weekend – I know people in the northeast and coast are sweltering with the heat and people in the gulf coast and Louisiana are flooded – I hope you all make through it ok. I am linking to Em’s Scrapbag: Moving It Forward Monday and Cooking Up Quilts: MCM #34 and Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times.
I don’t know how often you all check out Craftsy – I try to keep my eyes on it to give you all a heads up now and then – this is not an official sale but I was looking through the Quilt Kits as it is a great way to get fabric on sale and a pattern if you want it – sometimes I just want the fabric – but anyhow I noticed a lot of the quilt kits are marked down to around 50% – not all of them mind you but a lot of them and the ones marked clearance (158 of them) are low.
