I spent yesterday quilting my friend Marian's One Block Wonder. She chose a very bright, happy pinata fabric and I've had a blast working on it. (Yeah for the return of the quilting mojo!) Almost a full day of smooth sailing. (There was the time I spent looking for the batteries I bought for my laser light but I'm not counting that. I knew I put them in the safe spot and I checked that stupid spot 3 times before I saw them.)
During my rest times, I sat at my sewing machine and pieced a few more strips for the Hexagon Quilt Along. This morning I had to put a couple blocks together! My design wall was empty and lonely.
While at the library the other day, I checked out 3 One Block Wonder Books. I have so many friends doing these quilts and I am such a follower (babbaaaaaaa). I think I am going to try to make a few cubes to go with my hexagons. And someday I will find the perfect fabric and make my own OBW. After reading the books, I now want them for my own library.
Today I will finish quilting Marian's OBW and load Crystal's quilt that I've had forever and try to get it quilted and make some more hexagons. I think I have planned the perfect rainy day projects. Oh yeah, I have a crockpot cookbook from the library and I will find a recipe for chicken so dinner will be ready when the big guy walks through the door. (Old joke, very old joke!)
