This quilt is heading off to Vicki from Colorways by Vicki Welsh – we have been blog friends for years – she and a group out in Virginia make quilts for veterans and likes to get these small quilts – right size for hospital beds and wheel chairs. I spent the morning yesterday in the sewing room and walking back and forth to the kitchen to press and got it finished. Vicki will machine quilt it and hand it off to another to bind. The quilt finished at about 49 x 56.5 inches. Two charm packages were used and stash for the borders. Now I can get back to some of the other things – I haven’t touched those darn wool Christmas eggs that I was going to start LOL – so much for starting a new project for Christmas – should have known better – I will be lucky to get one done.
On Wednesday night I did get a bit more done on the Murrieta Stars quilt though and more last night too.
I am waiting until the weekend before I attempt to start painting the kitchen – the noise from outside and the roof work is just too distracting. They got at least half way done yesterday if not a little more – and it will be more of the same today. I did escape for a couple hours yesterday and went to the fitness center and it was a nice reprieve but then it sounded even louder when I got home!
Painting the kitchen will not take long and the lights will come in on Monday after that I will start to think of Christmas. Linking to Confessions of a Fabric Addict today and Busy Hands Quilts and Crazy Mom Quilts .
