Until Next Time...................
A rainy day, but I get to sew and quilt!!!
Wearing multiple hats this week, I have been
working longer than normal hours. So, hence not so much quilting this
past week. Well this is what I have accomplished this week.
My progress on "Boxy Stars" is coming
along. I got this pattern from Bonnie Hunter's (BH) website. It is listed here
under the free patterns tab. I am adding the
sashing and corner stones. I have even sewn a few completed rows together. My
focus this weekend is on completing this top! I am soooo close, it should not
difficult to do.
My goal for this weekend is to load my "String
Geese" quilt top. I made this top using men's shirts purchased from
Goodwill. This pattern can also be found on BH's website. It is made
using long strips. A nice, simple no brainer top.
I am continuing to work on my hexies, one more to
add to my stack. Just so you know, I haven't had the energy to do any stitching
while waiting for the light. Not even to work on them at lunchtime. I have been
working through lunch or at a meeting the entire week.
My previous post about the charity quilt that came
home with me in February for me to complete....well, I received a phone call thanking me for my
participation. I was told that they like to personally thank each person that
sends in a quilt. I was also given a website to see where my quilt went. I was
a little surprised that I was called
Last but not least, I am continuing to cut my 1
1/2" squares for the swap. I am about halfway there!
I hope everyone enjoys this special weekend,
however you may celebrate it!!!
Until next time.........
Enjoying the sun!!!
