This is the last of Sandy's quilts. I really like this one. What a fun quilt. She wanted starts quilted on it with red and gold thread. I was lucky and had a gold/yellow/red/rust variegated thread. I think it turned out OK.
Some of the detail in the quilting.
DONE 1. Applique block for class.
STARTED 2. Determine how I'm going to set these Jo's blocks. I might just need to make a couple of the Double Irish chain to see how it works. I'm really not sure, so I just need to do something. LOL I have planned out the double Irish chain. I will use the brown and blue variety of prints I have used in the blocks and some others. I will use the background fabric from the squares as the background on the double chain. I will use the 9" block from Jo's retreat as the center of the alternating block. When I run out of those blocks, I will use the background fabric or determine an easier block to use. I doubt I will make more of these blocks.
DONE 3. If Sandy brings me her quilts, start quilting them. Fix the flying geese quilt
DONE 4. quilt Sandy's baby quilt
DONE 5. Quilt red and gold quilt
On-GOING 6. Work on the tessellation quilt. this one take forever and I need it off my design wall soon!
DONE 7. De clutter at least one box - one bag
I did OK for it being a terrible weekend for emotions. Problems at home again. :( I don't understand the trigger and don't understand why I let it get to me. Anyway, I only have the long term projects of the Jo's Irish Chain and the Tessellation quilts. Other than that, I accomplished my to do list. I'm happy.
No more quilts ready to quilt. Wish I had a couple others ready to go. I guess I need to work on that, huh?
Tomorrow I need to make some appointments, pick up from quilting those quilts. Floor always needs vacuuming after quilting a quilt. I need to go through more bags and boxes and prepare for the applique class next month. If I do it now, then it will be OK.
