And here is Better Late, again.
After getting the center sewn, I decided to look at two ideas for how to sew on the borders. My initial plan was to ask you all which way looked best.
I got the borders all cut and prepped. And here they are, all ready to be sewn on.
But not wanting to wait until Monday, I went ahead and sewed the first two.
Then I decided to stop. Would this be a good time to stop and bind? My original plan was to make these blocks into a table topper/table cloth. Then the top plan just grew. But with a green binding, wouldn't this be good? So this is where we are right now. Later this week I will make a decision.
I did some fabric shopping this week. I love Maxine and my studio has to always have one of her calendars. I have no idea what I will do with this panel but was really excited to find it.
I do have a plan for the owls and it will be my next new project which will start after I get a new charity quilt going.
I did get the last of the Jelly Roll Sampler blocks done. I really hate that this series of blocks is done because I have enjoyed it. However I am glad it is done because I am almost out of fabric from my jelly roll. I did a really good job at only using the jelly roll and a little of a background fabric. I wonder when I will find a good/great idea for how to use them.
Inspiration did come in the mail this week. Joanne from Splitting Stitches sent me this bunch of flowers. Se recentl won a GO and sent out some of these to entice other to want one, too. These flowers are already backed with fusible web and ready to GO. Funny, huh?
I also was sent one of these. The little one is a "scrubbie" I received quite a while ago. I use it all the time and love it. The big one is a "wipe" and is new to my kitchen. Each is knit by Karen of Messy Karen and I really appreciate them both.
And now I must get back to work. Today we are changing our TV provider and then I get to clean house to be prepared for a visit from DS#3 and his wife later in the week. With any luck, I hope to spend some time in the studio. Be sure to drop by Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are working on.
