Quote for the Day:
"Any day spent quilting is a good day!"
I've been spending a lot more time quilting ever since I attended the quilting retreat the first weekend of November. I've been finding "snippets" of time here and there to get in a few minutes of sewing...like the last little time after I'm ready for work, but it's not time to leave yet, etc. I've got a lot to show for the extra time spent quilting, too, so let's get started, shall we?
I was off of work today and since my car was in the shop getting a remote start installed, I spent the day in my sewing room working, and finishing, Clue 3 of Bonnie Hunter's "Easy Street" mystery! Sixty-four shaded 4-patches! I even ended up with an extra one...a "spare"! LOL I don't know how I count everything multiple times and I still end up with "extra".
Here's the pieces that I've made so far doing the first 3 clues...
Between working on the steps of this mystery quilt, I've been working on finishing up the blocks to my "Smith Mountain Morning" quilt. I have decided that I will name mine "Christmas Mountain Morning"!
The blocks are all completed and arranged on my design wall. Now they just need to be joined together to make the quilt top so I can add the borders and then machine quilt it!
I'm hoping I can have it made into a completed quilt by Christmas! :)
Ginger gets very bored when I'm in the sewing room and not playing with her. She's usually laying under my rolling chair and leaning into one of my legs (usually the leg I operate the foot pedal with, no less). However, today she was so bored she went into our bedroom and drug her bed out into the landing and took a nap.
At one point today when she and I were in my sewing room she got ahold of a quilt block and chewed on it without me knowing it. After it dried out I ironed it to see if it was still useable. It wasn't.
Gives new meaning to the term "dog-eared"! LOL This poor block is completely shredded around the perimeter.
Poor quilt block...it never stood a chance against Ginger! :(
