This is the week I get everything, well almost everything, ready for finishing.
My tumbler quilt top is finished. I put the backing together Sunday and here they are, resting on the HQ, ready for me to get the backing together and begin. Of course that will also mean that I get to sit on the floor and go through all of my pantos to find a good one for this comfort quilt.
And on the Design Wall? Well, here is my Underground Railroad quilt, on the DW again. I have all the blocks finished and have drawn up several layouts in EQ.
This is the plan I have chosen, I think. I have the border fabrics hanging on the DW and I have cut the 1.5” black strips to put between the blocks. If I get the tumbler quilt set up on the frame I will cut the borders and begin putting this together, too.
If you look at the lower right corner of the first picture you will see the rack where I hang the completed tops. I counted 5 already on there. That’s when I decided that I needed to focus on finishes. If I can get these 7 done I then will have some time for the current BOMs and the swap blocks I also have waiting for settings. Wow, I seem to be way behind in getting things done.
Saturday we went to a model train show. DH has talked about setting up a train set for several years but mostly he has been collecting ideas and parts. At the show he collected this.
This is a toy Dunkin Donut truck sitting on a Dunkin Donut box (with only one donut left). Someday it will sit on a road next to a great train layout. Now it is just a reminder of the great donuts we had yesterday.
Now, grab yourself a cut of coffee and a donut and check out the wonderful quilting being shown at Patchwork Times.
