Yeah for Long Weekends
Remember that pile on the quilt rack that was almost a foot high? Well, there are just two projects there now. Yeah, the quilt rack that isn't used to hold quilts - silly me. No, things are not totally finished - but they are moved on to the next stage or close to a finish. And there are some things I just can't show because they are test projects.
These are the June and July blocks for the 'Adinkra' QAL with Debby Kratovil. I thank Deb for getting the blocks out as I know she is into her heavy teaching/travel season and enjoying a new baby in the family.
Caught up on the Circa 2016 bitty blocks with Temecula Quilt Co. I am scrounging the bottom of the big tote of repros for all those bits. I am not cutting tiny pieces when they are floating in there somewhere.
Opposite corners completed on the rail/color wash project for Let's Book It.
Put the finishing touches on a tutorial for the Christmas in July Blog Hop - with a little help.
And speaking of the Hop - I have my fabrics. You can find the fabric requirements and an EQ layout of the quilt Sarah has planned HERE . Don't want to play with holiday fabric in the heat? She has suggestions for optional fabric/color play HERE.
And I am closing my days with some night hand work. A quilt I am handquilting (to be shown once done) and playing with hexies. I have one of each color rosette and now working the second of each color. I have the background fabric for this quilt, so even though I am still collecting 30' fabric for the piecing part I can applique these on to their setting. This will be my entry for the Empire Quilt Fest in 2018, so I have lots of time.
Hope you had a pleasant long weekend,
