Whooping Up Friday 6/3/16
I was thrilled to finally have all those tiny pieces into rows and rows into their quadrant ready for those to be turned into a flimsy. I laid out two quads to pin - went to grab a fresh cuppa and found fatty laying claim to it. She got the pleasure of a nap for about an hour while I hunted up some backing fabrics and then I shoo'ed her off as I want this one done. It's big and will have to wait for an outdoor photo (it rained again), but it is a flimsy!!
In my search for backings, I came across a box with little pinwheels - when did I make those? So I pulled the solid skinnies from Hillside Houses and another project and framed them. Still too small, so I remembered I had some JR strips from Dottie left over and I'll frame them up once more so they will finish up at 8". A good start to another charity quilt and all from scraps that needed using up. *linking up with Oh,Scrap*
And I am so pleased with my '365' quilt in progress. I have the next row of 6 prepped for hand work on Slow Sunday Stitching. That will make me 2 days ahead for June, but working a row at a time is keeping me on track with this project.
We are to have good weather for the weekend, so I hope to get some yard work done. And my porch needs a good cleaning and decor. The Lansing Manor show will be on, but I am grounded without a car so will be enjoying a quiet house while puttering outside and minding the shop.
Enjoy your weekend,
