There was a lot of stitching over the weekend. I managed to get 75 of the 'wing' units finished for the next clue for 'On Ringo Lake' with Bonnie Hunter. I am only making half the number of units for a smaller quilt, but I still need to make at least 25 more of these. I am rumaging thru my barrel system for the blues and browns - use it up - so it take more time to get the pieces together than to actually sew them. Be sure to see how others are progressing HERE @ Quiltville
I got all my ducks - er, geese - in a row. This quilt will be put away for a finish next year. I am thinking a small inner border and than wide outer border to pull this all together. I attached a note on it with this information, because you know me and borders.
The last blocks for the Patchwork Sampler with Moda are finished and I cut all the sashings and inner border strips. This will be done at another time as with so much white, my furkids seem to gravitate to white! I have to have a day when they have both tucked themselves away on the guest bed and stitch like a mad women to finish this one off. I think I will have to shop for some yardage (Katherine Anne by Patrick Lose) for the outer border - after Christmas.
Since I am digging thru my barrels for those few more blues, I thought it would be a good time to pull the Postage Stamp quilt in progress and get this one done today.
Here it is laid out for a better look. I am making strips and then putting them into 10 rows of 40 squares (2"). Then I will sew those 10 row sections together. I couldn't fit all the rows on this table, but I need only 5 more rows to pull this all together which will give me a 60" square flimsie.

Monday Making with Beth is on hiatis, but she has a wonderful linky party for a Christmas Quilt Show. I need to pull together a post and add it tomorrow. Why not join in? At leat be sure to go visit and see all the inspiration.
We were only 9 degrees this morning when I woke up; makes me wonder what the temp will be at noon for my temperature quilt hexie today.
