I spent 5 hours in my sewing room today. I made all the sashing strips for both Nearly Insane-ish quilts. I also put 5 rows together. I can't believe this is as far I as got in all that time. I thought for sure I would get these tops put together today. It looks like it may take a few more marathon sessions just to get all the rows put together. I will then have to square it up and start thinking about borders. I think Colleen wants me to put a small 2" white strip around hers first and then her wide white with red border that she chose. I haven't decided whether or not I am going to do the same or go ahead and make that paper pieced zig-zag border that Ranette made. Decision, decisions.
I finished my "Gardeners Journal" BOM for May on Friday night. I had to make this block twice. It just gave me fits! I think this one has the ladybug going the wrong way too but it is staying just like it is.
I was sorting through UFO's yesterday. I started 2 quilts a while back, I was going to do a white version and a black version. I made 7 of 12 blocks for each quilt and quit. They are about 18" square and have a few hundred pieces each. I lost interest and don't want to finish them. They are called "A New Beginning" and "Out of the Darkness" and are Pam Bono designs. Joy and I decided to use them to make 2 twin size quilts to donate to her father's charity. I am going to take them to our get together next Saturday so we can figure out how to lay them out and finish them. I don't have it in me to make that 8th block to make them even. Maybe we can use 6 blocks per quilt and use the 8th block for a pillow. Daisy decided that they were the perfect spot to sit on. LOL!
I wish everyone a Happy, Healthy, creative week.
