Whooping Friday

The herd of Triceratops is completed.   For some reason I made the same mistake on the same section with each dino.  I even put a NOTE in the instructions, but still flipped the wrong way.  Luckily I check before snipping off.  The seam ripper had a great time.  Sashings and borders are cut and ready for a weekend finish.

AND Bella was such a great help in getting this one quilted and bound.  I just kept spinning her as I needed to work a section.  She would just reposition onto the available space.  But it got finished and hopefully it will be a nice day for outside photos.

So you can get ready for the event:

Scrappy Wednesday

All of the 16-patches are made, but I need twelve 3x4 blocks.  So the 1.5" squares have been dumped on the table again.  When I find 4 like pieces, they are set into groupings for the Easy Breazy leader/ender project.

I have quite a pile of the white scraps pieces bundled so I can pair up with the tiny squares.  I'm not really working these as leader/enders, but doing up 10-12 at a time.  Right now I have 50 blocks done and have another 10 ready to whip up at the machine .  This is a year long project, so I might set this aside for a couple of months.

Poor Moe got caught outside in the storm from yesterday afternoon until the blow over the next late afternoon.  Well, he must have held up in one of the barns and sure he 'fed' himself.  I gave him a special treat and lots of pets & scritches.  Then he hunkered down in the middle of my work.  It will make me slow down the process, but sometimes we need that nudge to take it slow.

So many areas were hit hard with storm Isaias and NY was in the eye for some time.  While areas around us had extensive damage and power outage, we stayed 'lit' and hopefully damage free - I won't know until I assess things later.

Stay Safe and Healthy,

Monday Making

Today I am going to play with a new pattern.  This is another design by Lorna @ SewFreshQuilts called Triceratops.

These are large blocks (with some tiny pieces) and I need to make 6.  This will help clear some things out of my FG totes.

Hope every one along the East Coast stays safe as Hurricane Isaias rolls on up.  We were on tornado watch last night.
