A bit more done! Making progress. I added a white border to the small quilt top that I have been working the last couple days and have come to the conclusion that I need to restock my white on white prints – I have very little left. By putting all the fabric in the boxes for storage I realized how little of them I have and making this small quilt necessitated using several different kinds for a very scrappy piece. I had to actually dig into this box of small bits to come up with some to finish the border when I came to realize I was short – this box has a mixture of white on white, beige on white etc. I keep meaning to cut these into squares but had not gotten to it.
The small quilt is now about 45 x 55 inches – I’m thinking of one more scrappy blue border and then red binding. And then I have second thoughts and tell myself to leave it as a baby quilt – but I don’t know which is in more use needed for charity quilts – couch size or baby? It kind of makes for a cute baby quilt right now doesn’t it? Linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict , Fort Worth Fabric Studio, and Crazy Mom Quilts and Tweety Loves Quilting.
One more hexie finished for Handful of Scraps – it took three days to make this one hexie in between other things.
One more hexie for this ring of hexies on Handful of Scraps and I will step back and decide on final color arrangement – take a photo of it to go by, I need to count how many white hexies are needed, make sure I have enough and this well be brought with me to my sisters house to work on while I am visiting her later in the month.
This much left to work on for the Postage Stamp quilt and it will then be half way done. I was going to pin baste and remove it from the frame and take the frame apart for storage while we work on the room but Mike has been a little slow going through all his stuff (my god that man has a lot of papers and books to go through) and I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t take him some days still to finish up – he goes back to work full time on Monday from the way it looks for a year – I have a feeling this one room project is going to take longer than planned. I will wait to take the quilt off the frame until he is actually ready to proceed on the room – easier to quilt it there then on the smaller square hoop.
We are supposed to wake up to snow this morning!! as I write my blog the night before and have it scheduled to post early AM I don’t know if it did as I sit here writing this last night at 7 PM – did it snow or not – and if it did how much? Possibly we will get 2 inches – that will be pretty – it has not snowed this winter yet – but of course along with it comes very frigid air – two nights in the mid teens – today barely out of the 20’s if it does and by next week Tuesday – back in the 50’s and high 30’s for night – so I guess with such a short cold spell we are tough enough to handle it.
