In between making pumpkin pies, doing laundry and regular household chores I was able to get in time on my quilting. We are having a small Thanksgiving with just our daughter Melanie and her husband Ric over for an early in the day meal and then will be on our own the rest of the day. Plenty of time for more sewing I’m sure! With a main large meal early in the day means no more cooking for me after one! Leftovers the rest of the day and tomorrow too.
One more Scrappy Star made and I rearranged my table – with it sticking out in the room a bit – I will see if I can get used to it as I do have more room to work for sure. I rearranged in such a way that when I am cutting pieces for the stars I can leave the accuquilt out and have room to cut fabric the right sizes to put through the dies. I have room on the right side of the table along the side to operate the machine crank. On the table is the star I made today and I have a small stack of star points and squares ready for about 4 or 5 more I think.
My neutrals for the stars are not all the same – I am pulling from this box and from other stacks here and there determined to use up the small pieces!
A little more binding on The Final Frontier was done and I have one side and about 10 inches of the 3rd side left to do.
Four more Scrappy Baskets are cut. I had cut six squares of this shirting and I will be using a variety of those fabrics as well. I can actually see a dent in the small pieces of fabrics in the boxes on the shelves on the wall in here – in the boxes are mainly fat quarter or less – some a little larger but anything in the boxes are well less than a 1/2 yard and closer to fq in size.
