I will blog while a thunderstorm passes over here. This is the first rain we have had for a couple of weeks so even with the wind and noise, it is welcome.
This has been a productive weekend. As noted below, the quilting on Spring Garden is done. Also done is the binding (same as the border) and I appliquéd down the stretched fabric that turned into tucks on the back. The quilt has been washed and right now is in the dryer. I can hardly wait to see how it looks but am, as always, a little fearful.
edit: all done and looking good on my bed. Yippie! I’ll try to get a label on before the end of the month.
Also this weekend I completed the April strips for the calendar quilt challenge: I was only 2 days behind.
I have strips cut for some of May: I am trying to include some from current projects and, if I have them, strips from past, pre-blog, projects.
I have a gift quilt top and back(cannot show yet) ready to load on the frame and I have the fussy cut borders cut for the black and white and hope to get them sewn on tomorrow.
It has been different in the studio. I don’t allow my dogs in there: Abby is still a puppy and the other two aren’t interested. But Ponce follows me over there and then stands outside, staring at the door. So this morning I decided to take him with me. In he walked in and started checking out the work in process.
But after a little while he got right to work.
And pretty soon he was fully involved in canine quilting.
Isn’t it fun to have a quilting buddy?
