More quilting……Keith’s in Denmark until Tuesday night and it’s raining outside (a good reason to avoid the long walk I should be taking) so here’s my plan – it’s a little ambitious so it might carry me further than today.
In no particular order
- Load and quilt the Patriotic String Star with the Ebb and Flow pantograph (won’t that kind of give it that wavy, flag blowing in the breeze look?)
- Cut and stitch the Lizard Strippie that I didn’t get to the other day
- Finish the binding on the Rectangle strings – just a little more than one side left to do
- Make some more Half Square Strings blocks
These triangles were cut for me by Mom (she helps me out in exchange for quilting services) about 4 years ago and were intended for a king size string quilt for my MIL. For many reason that I won’t go into here – that quilt was never made.
I finished one HeartStrings quilt earlier this year but the basket has been sitting by my sewing table since then waiting for me to use them up. I made a couple blocks to photograph last night as I was writing the Half Square Strings instructions to post on the MaryQuilts.com site so I’ll work on these blocks and take a break from Chinese Coins for a bit.
I want to visit inside your head sometime – you are so organized, disciplined and prolific! I would like some more of that for myself. I can’t seem to operate without at least 10 projects in some state of development.
What Vicki w said!>And then there is the reading to be done! LOL.
Wow, Mary! You are like the energizer bunny or something. My computer time was very limited while I was away so I was not able to see what you and Heartstrings had been up to. Or tell you how cute the new haircut looks!
A very ambitious list of projects. I don’t know how you get so much done! I never seem to have enough hours in the day.>The pineapple blossom is beautiful, Mother will love it.
mega wow…gorgeous quilting on your mom’s quilt-wonderful quilt instructions you have put up for everyone-you are being very generous in doing all that extra work-many, many thanks Mary. the quilts with the chinese coins all look great and no, I am not tired of seeing them-fabulous work!
