A long May is finally over. A very difficult month for sure - lock downs, demonstrations and riots, curfews, and we here in the NorEast had snow days. Heck, even last night was heavy frost! I haven't put my winter coat away yet.
Seven miniatures and table toppers got made, two quilts quilted and two more flimsies got added to the pile. I'm suppose to be keeping ahead with the quilting pile - oh well.
The last pile of blocks are coming out of the project tote - the tote has been filled back up with solids now. And I came across a gifted stack of charms that I will look for a quick baby quilt pattern to use them up.
I found black!! Keepsake Quilting has what they call 'Amish Black' (kona) and they have pre-cuts of 1, 2, or 3 yrds which you can see come nicely packaged. Although everything checked out available when I ordered, there was only half my order with the other half 'not available - back ordered'. We shall see if it ever arrives - this has happened to me in the past with this shop. BUT I have my black!
My first job is to get the scrappy rail fence log cabin quilt into the flimsy stage. This shouldn't take long as I have the halves together - it's just stitching those two with one long seam and done.
Then next is getting the binding done on my 'Stitching Sunshine Hop' project.
The 20 gallon tote stuffed with shirtings, plaids, and flannels has been pulled into view. Time to play with those chickens and the Lincoln quilt. I'll set aside some for the Hobo Quilt I want to start in the Fall.
I need to pull my OMG project and probably another to-be-quilted top. June is another long month - right?
Stay Safe and Healthy,
