This is my Design Deck for today. It is my Underground Railroad top, complete. I love it and it is perfect for a new fall quilt. With any luck I will be getting this on the frame sometime this week.
This was where I was on Wednesday, got the center done with the 6” center panels and the 1” black sashings between and on the ends of the blocks. I really like how the little black lines separate the blocks from each other.
Here we are with the first two borders on. I do have to admit that I put one of the borders on backward, you know, right side to wrong side. Those are pretty long seams to have to unsew but unsew I did.
And then yesterday I got it finished.
It is a scrappy binding using the scraps from the front as well as pieces of the backing. I’m afraid I got carried away attaching the pieces together and I think I have enough binding for two comfort sized quilts. We will see when I sew it on today.
In addition to sewing, I walk. DH and I walk 2 miles almost every day. On our walk the other morning we saw this:
This spider web was more than 3’ wide and almost perfect. We looked and looked but couldn’t find a spider. It had rained very hard for two days prior to that so it had to be spun that morning. And can you see the fog? That stayed around until about 10am. Spooky, huh? Perfect for getting in the Halloween mood.
This is Buffy. She has felt left out since both Ms. Murphy and Abby have been spotlighted on the blog and she hasn’t. The sweater is one that Abby had on when she came to live with us. It doesn’t fit her anymore but is perfect for Buffy.
Buffy is primarily DH’s dog and he is way proud of her for being an Auburn fan.
Besides being an Auburn fan, I am also a Patchwork Times fan. I encourage you to drop over there to see all the wonderful projects her other fans are working on.
