This Quiltathon with Patchwork Times has been a blast.
Until this morning!
It all started out innocent enough.
I was going to quilt while Ernie slept in.
So I started where I left off yesterday afternoon.
Piano key borders, free motion, add texture, practice straight lines.
What I didn't check when I put the quilt under the needle was my backing.
I flopped it under!
I have 21" of unpicking to do.
I might cry while I do it.
I think I might put this aside until TV time later today.
I'm going to sew En Provence blocks together instead.
I will shed no tears while doing that.
Day 4 is going to be all about fun!
10:30 check in.
2 blocks of En Provence have been layed out on the design boards.
One block is sewn, block 2 is partially sewn.
I'm also using the sashing for my leaders/enders.
I love how this is looking!
Maybe I can have 1/4 of my quilt top sewn together today.
3:15 check in.
4 blocks and 10 sashing units complete!
It was a good day sewing.
I even have most of the whoopsie unpicked.
Only about 5" to go.
It was nice to snuggle under the quilt for a while.
Thanks Judy L for a fun weekend.
I'm excited to be so close to finished on my Tumalo Trail quilt.
Maybe by the end of the week I can post about it's finish.
