The scrappy homespun 'Chicken Gumbo' quilt is ready for quilting. I will have to get a back for it, but there are other quilts on the pile that get their 'quilting' day before this one. I chose to set 20 blocks instead of the 30 in the pattern and changed the size of the borders up - unfinished 64.5" x 74.5". Fun to make, but didn't put a dent in the homespuns.
Pressing at the ironing board.......
Pulling out of the tote and trying to sort into color - half the tote still full. A lot of pinks for a quilt of their own.
Piled on the table (and another table as well) with the beginnings of the Lincoln Quilt. I've wanted to make this since seeing it on Barbara Brackman's site HERE.
We had some good thunderstorms and heavy rains - much needed! Today is cooler and LESS humid. Did a walk around to see how the flowers held up to the heavy rains - totally beat down. On the up side, the weeds will be easier to pull though.
