I'm going to assemble the Lincoln Quilt today. All of the 16-Patches.......
and all of the Sawtooth Stars and my helper are ready to go. I'm just tossing them on the table, floor and ironing board and 'pick and sew' - I don't stress over layout. My biggest hurdle will be moving Moe.
That project should go quickly as it is just a lot of long straight line stitching. So I have this project dumped. This is a quilt my Mom started in 1970 (?) and she tried to get someone to take the bag and finish it. Well, no takers and I didn't want to toss it. BUT I tested that pink and green fabric - it was not cotton and melted fast to my iron even at a rather low setting. So blocks will get taken apart so the pink can be scrapped and the green went out the door. It looked like she started setting these on point with the light floral alternating - that may change.
We are getting some nice cooler, fallish weather and I like to spend time outdoors in this setting. My flower gardern needs a perk up and maybe I'll go up the road to see if anything Fall is ready for planting.
