The border work for the Retro Air Ship Propeller quilt is moving along but it finished off a little wavy so I’m going to go back in on Monday – taking a break – and take in a couple seams here and there to try to tame that waviness down. The top and bottom of the quilt measure an inch more than the center – it would be ok to just leave as is but I’m not in a rush and the way the border is made it is fairly easy to just go in and re do about 4 to 6 seams taking in a 1/8 to 1/4 inch here and there to make the measurements the same. When I tame the waviness – yes I know I do not have to do that but on this one I wanted to – I will add another red border. I don’t have a lot left though and I think I will be lucky to get a 3 inch border finished on it – that will make the quilt about 98 or 99 inches square which will work out ok. The binding then would be a neutral color.
I have gotten more hexies basted and I think in between normal weekend stuff I will be working on Handful of Scraps – the lower corner will be the section to work. I have all the pieces picked out and the photo taken with the Ipad now I just need to sit back and look for something on Netflex or Amazon Prime to watch and get busy!
A little bit of shopping today for herbs for the garden – rosemary, sweet mint, spearmint, peppermint, two basils, sage and sweet marjoram (I have not grown this one before). The mints will go in pots and the rest in the garden. Not sure if these will get planted today – rain yesterday continued part of the night and I’m not sure just how wet the garden is – might be too muddy I will check it out later – rain off and on all week the forecast says so would like to get these in the ground or potted.
Craftsy is having a supply sale – today March 24th through March 26th midnight.
