66 degrees yesterday and more of the same through the weekend and maybe near 80 on Monday – crazy weather – I just saw a new map on the weather channel that says the next three months for our area will be above normal for warmth – I hope we are not going to have high temperatures in the summer – please let it not get too hot!! I am ready for spring though.
The red borders were sewn on the Propellers but I didn’t take a new photo of it. Basically looks the same as yesterdays photo when the border was pinned in place. It no longer fits on the design wall so it will be back to a design floor. Mike is working on the sewing room again this weekend and will be tracking through the house all weekend so I have folded that quilt and it is over a chair – I will get back to it on Monday – taking a little break while I give more thought to continuing the border. The floor will need a good vacuuming. I just don’t have room for the ironing board to be out and the design wall up and wall that walking back and forth to the back door in the dining room which is the general area I work in.
I did lay the hexies out last night so I can work on layout but he was already done for the day (he was off Friday). I have found the easiest way for me to work on hexies for the layout and not forget where I want what color/prints. I don’t care to have too many darker color neutrals together (that happened in parts of the top) so what I do is get down to the floor with the Ipad, lay pieces out and take a close up photo – go back to the couch and sit and stitch –glancing at the photo for what comes next, I do small sections at a a time. the pieces you see on the Ipad screen were already picked up when I thought to take a photo to show how I do it. The center of the hexie quilt shown here will be about 48 x 48 inches – it is no where near finished as I want it closer to queen size – I just do not use couch size quilts all that often and prefer big quilts. No rush right! plenty to keep me busy. I think most agree – Hexagon quilts are intended to take a long time to make LOL Linking to Tweety Loves Quilting today.
Nothing else happening here! hope you all have a good weekend.
