Whooping it Up
I had to wait for my gray fabrics to come to work on the next two blocks for the Harry Potter Quilt with Sew Fresh Quilts. Hedwig the Owl was presented in two sections over the last couple of weeks, so it gave me time to catch up on him. The castle or school is the last block and will be given in two sections as well. I have a few events, meetings, and a commission - so that one might get a little delayed. Of course there are the dreaded borders as well.
I spent the last few days making the 95 9-patches for the final panels for the Summer Scraps quilt. I could have taken the easy way and cut into the larger pieces and worked strip sets, but the goal was to use up the smallest pieces of scraps in the CW totes. AND NO, I did not even put a dent in those totes - but that means I can make another quilt.
My Happy Mother's Day and Happy Birthday gift to me! I really down sized the vehicle, but I love it (Buick Encore). I have had so many people comment on the color - metallic blue so it's got a sparkle to it.
Even took my Mom out in it and it's much easier for her to get in and out of - she didn't grab the dashboard once! And she could pick it out in the parking lot with ease - lol!!
Now to cut into a lot of NEW and old fabric,
