I know we are getting deep into Summer as my quilts are getting darker in color and stash stocking has gone into Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas mode. I fell a day behind on progress as I was ill for a day from 'horsing' two large quilts back-to-back thru my little machine. Oh, I hope to remember not to do that again!! Solution - have large quilts packaged with backing and batt - and hand them off to the long armer one at a time . That's the weekend plan!
Another big one - still needs a border on it. This was the FreeSpirit Christmas Block Along. I had a lot of 'Christmas in July' and then the Mystery Quilt in seasonal fabric, so I opted to do this one in black/white (scraps) with a touch of red. I need to pick up border fabric, but do have backing.
To ease myself back in the groove (and try to clean up that messy room I showed before) I decided to just play with some blocks. A few more scrappy Churn Dash to add to the pile.
I finished up the last few LARGER buildings for the "Business District" for the Christmas Village Quilt Along - mine is non-seasonal - going scrappy.
And I did up the Week #5 block for Melissa's Tetris Quilt Along. And I did up the sashing for this, so when the last block comes out next week I can put this all together.
And I am hoping to finish up a secret project tonight so it can be off in the mail tomorrow. Just will have my FMQ Challenge left for the month of 'need to be done' items - HMMM - I will have two whole weeks to lazily play the rest of the month!!
