While I was preparing our Thanksgiving feast on Wednesday, I was able to sneak in here intermittently and prepare two more blocks for our guilds' block contribution during the quilt show. I did three blocks in all (I have so many other things I want to do right now so three was my limit). Want to see them?
|There they are. All Three!|
This morning, after decorating the house for Christmas, I started loading Margarets third quilt. I just finished loading (lunch break wedged its way in there) and here's what DW is wearing today.
|Margaret's third Strip Therapy quilt.|
The backing fabric arrived today for our Christmas Triangles top. I took a look at it and it will definitely need prewashing prior to getting it under the long arm. I'll work on that while I'm quilting "pinky" here.
I've decided the wall hanging that pairs with our current bed quilt will not work well with the Christmas Triangles quilt. I need to make a wall hanging to match. I rummaged around my magazines from previous months/years and found a nice ornament one that would work nicely. It's designed by Diane Harris (QM Interactive Editor) whom I've worked with in the past, which explains why I like the design.
I have enough left over fabric from the triangle construction to incorporate into the wall hanging. So Yeah!
