Monday, Monday

Monday was a great day, I got several blocks quilted on the quilt under the title of this blog. I had planned to do an overall, edge to edge, panto on it but when I got it out of storage and looked at it, there was no way. So I have been “forced” to plan a custom design for each block. This is really testing my skills. In order to show what I have done I have had to get down on the floor (remember, I am old) and shoot up from under the quilt frame. Down was not too bad, up was a little more difficult.



I started with the checker board blocks doing leaves and flowers in alternating blocks. I did SID outlining the block and then the pattern.









I did all 8 checker boards and then moved on to the poinsettia block. I had drawn it out first:












and then quilted. It looks pretty good, if I do say so myself.

I have started on the tulip block but have not finished it yet, I had to leave for WW.


Today is the day I have to finish our taxes, tradition, so I don’t know if I will get back to the studio, or if I will be in any mood for it. LOL Wish me luck!

  2. you sound as bad as we are - I just got our taxes in the mail today - file on the computer but we always seem to owe some to the state and wait until the last minute to pay them.
