It's a Flimsy!
It's a Flimsy
After making my little houses yesterday, I continued working on the pink Project Linus quilt and I got the whole top finished. I honestly don't know why but I seemed to have gone overboard making the border strips. I got carried away when piecing all of the 2.5" squares together and I think I pieced almost twice as many as I needed. Instead of taking them apart and putting the squares back in the bin I just put them in as they are. Maybe they will become part of another quilt at some point in the future. The next time I show this quilt top it will hopefully be a quilt! I would have liked to have made the backing and binding today but after working for 5 hours and then running a couple errands I drove my son to Toronto (and while I was there I had a quick visit with my sister, Cheryl). Eric had waited until the last minute to get to class and used Mom's taxi service because he was busy working on a paper that needed to be handed in today. He was running behind because he also had a job interview today for a summer position. Things went well and he does get a second interview on Wednesday and I hope he gets hired!
I just got home about an hour ago and I had thoughts about possibly working on a Midget Block today but I am pooped. But...maybe...if I go in my sewing room...and just start poking around.....
