|Molly gave the quilt top her seal of approval - she farted on it! Whaaat!!!|
The log cabin quilt top is all done and I couldn't be happier with it. I decided that it didn't need the extra row of blocks and I kind of like it with just the narrow red border to contain it all and to draw the eye to the red center blocks - they are the heart of the home. I already have the binding strips cut and ready and I just need to decide on what to use for the backing.
The next project that I have pulled out of it's bin is this one. I think I am in love with crumb blocks - they make such a pretty, colourful quilt. I wasn't too sure which colour to use for sashing until a reader suggested turquoise and I think she hit it spot on! Today, I put the blocks up on the design wall, ironed the fabric that I want to use as the sashing and started cutting and sewing. I have the sashing attached to one side of the blocks and I hope to make more progress later today.
For now though, I really do have to make some progress with some other bits and pieces that make up our daily lives. Laundry is underway and I really do need to tidy the kitchen and get at making some bread and muffins, and I have been craving magic cookie bars so they just might get made as well. The floors need to be vacuumed and washed and, well, I just don't know how it will all get done. Luckily, today is a holiday and I am going to enjoy it to the fullest. I think the house can wait until tomorrow - I just hope no one drops in for a visit.
