Here is one of the on-the-go projects: quilting Summer Daze. I am doing a basic stipple, but I might go back in and "ribbon" the stipple, a tip from Cynthia's Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework.
I've also been cutting and cutting, and sorting through my scraps...
|Organized chaos this evening|
For the scrap quilt #5 in Scrap-a-Palooza, I noted that I seemed to have rather a scant supply of dark blues. Cough. Not. I totally forgot about the under 1/2 yard roll-ups I keep in my plastic drawer organizers. Yay! So I've been happily slicing off 2.5 strips and cutting the strips into 2.5" squares. I think I have about 120 squares of both the dark blues and the lights. It's not enough yet.
And, ta-da! Here is the Christmas scrap quilt #2 (#3 for me as I'm not doing them in posted order) on the design wall. I DID have enough Christmas blues to do the centre blue, and then thought that green would flow nicely for the second spiral, meaning the outer one would be red. As a result, I needed a LOT more red 4.5" squares. Since I am planning on giving this to my grandson, and red is his favourite colour, it just all fell into place perfectly. You'd think I planned it that way.
I hope to sew it up tomorrow, finish quilting Summer Daze and MAYBE sew up some blocks for the scrap quilt #5.
And where is my Self Round Robin? On the design wall...off the design wall...on the design wall... I am avoiding the appliqué round, I openly admit it! The guild meeting is one week from today; did I mention yet that I work well under pressure?!
