In Like a Dragon
As one of my quilt guild members stated - March has swept in like a Dragon. She is so right as a Lion cannot match the roar and chaos the Frost Dragon has brought upon us. We had a few teaser days in February that made us hopeful, but let's not forget here in the NorEast - it is still Winter.
I'm using the time to play with a few more Puss in the Corner blocks with my 1.5" scraps. I do one or two of these; then.....
I will do one or two thread lengths on the new Bag Lady - Millecent. The polka dot dress has given me ideas for her mini. And hard to see, but she has a kitty in her pocket. She's also a crazy quilter - hmm, so stitching in the border?
I have the binding on this baby. This was one of my Let's Book It projects from a couple of years ago. It sat in that large tote hidden because it needed that last border. I had my long armer do a tight meander because of the long skinny bias strip piecing - oh, I love this quilt.
Well, one or two threads are going into this binding during the weekend with the other mix of projects. It will get done, Millecent will be happily on the go, and those blocks should get finished.
Just to show what it took to get the last binding on - while rotating a cat along with the quilt. Luckily neither furkid was around when I did the other.
This Saturday our quilt guild is having a sit and sew. The main object is to get our member blocks of cats and dogs (yes, there is one racoon) into two quilt tops - one of the dogs and one of the cats. These will be quilted by members and binding finished off in time to donate to the annual raffle/auction for the local Animal Shelter.
Members can use the time to work on their Charity quilt(s), or other project, or use the nice long tables for basting a project. It is to be bitter cold, but some social time along with sewing time is going to be good.
