I'm happy to say that the HST quilt is now a flimsy. The final border was trims from a quilt backing and there was enough for binding - all used up (well, one string in the tote and a few squares in the barrels). A happy blend of scraps. If I had backing for it, it would go under the needle for quilting - so it goes on the pile to wait.
And my daughter sent me another photo of a quilt top collaborated with her daughter - that curly headed muffin. She picked the pattern and fabric, helped lay it out, and manned the foot pedal while Mom manned the needle. I think I need to pass on my little Brother (with added finger guard.)
Today I will work on these Sawtooth Star blocks that go with the ladder blocks - progress that project a little more.
And I like to take breaks from sitting at the machine. That time will be used to clean up this shelf. I have pulled from it and thrown project left overs back on it. Some I am sure can be broken down into my barrels, but I am thinking a Bow Tie quilt needs to be made. An easy math block and eats up lots of scraps.
We are cold, windy, and snowy for Earth Day - I think Mother Nature is pissed!
Stay Safe and Healthy,
