I'm ready to start today's Quiltathon......who knows how long it will last. Ernie went to town and I have no idea what he has planned for the rest of the day. It's always a mystery! Last night I made this paper piece block to replace yesterday's disaster. Today I will make the remaining 2 blocks and be caught up for this sampler. Then I plan to do the Carol Doak block for this month.
My friend Harriet have me a big bag full of preprinted panels of all kinds. She told me to do with them whatever I want so I am going to put them in the washer and dryer then I am going to use some of them on the back of my Ultimate Scrap Quilt Like Julie's. I am finally in the quilting mood and would love to have this one finished for retreat in a couple weeks.
Off I go, I'll check in later.
I'm caught up on Grandmother's Choice! I went ahead and sewed the sashing rows to the block row. It needs one more block-next Saturday.
I got kind of a late start, just after I posted this morning, my brother stopped to visit. After he left, Ernie went into town to get some lumber to finish the trim on the new door we had installed a couple weeks ago. When he asked if I wanted anything from town, I said yes, lunch please. He brought home Taco Bell. He is so well trained, I think I'll keep him. Now he is playing carpenter and I am going to go back in and do some paper piecing!
I'm done for the night. I got the Carol Doak block done. Helped a few times while Ernie put the trim back on the door...and it looks so nice! After putting some stuff away and cleaning up a bit, I decided to work on the Sow-A-Long blocks. I cut the setting triangles and the rest of the sashing and cornerstones. I put a couple rows together but my brain isn't wanting to work so I decide to wait until tomorrow so I don't mess it up. The fabric for the backing is washed and dried so I can figure out how to make the quilt back.
Now I'm going to put the chickens to bed and park myself in the recliner and knit until I can't keep my eyes open anymore.
