Wall, Deck, What’s the Difference?
Last Monday I took the Dragon down from the design wall, pinned him to the backing and then basted him down really good: check out this post. When I finished with him he looked a lot like Gulliver when he was tied down by the Lilliputians. However, now he is folded up on a shelf until I can begin the long, tedious, applique process.
In the meantime, the wall needed a project. Recently I found these blocks that I think were a jelly roll QAL run by Konda of Moose on the Porch Quilts. I liked most of the blocks and even have coordinating fabric for them but never came up with an idea of how I wanted to set them. So, up on the wall they have gone and hopefully a creative idea will come.
Meanwhile, here is Block 2 in the Carol Doak Mystery BOM 2012.
And doesn’t it look good with Block 1? Seeing them together I am really getting excited for how this quilt is going to turn out.
And, in the middle of all my sewing on Sunday, DH came to the studio to ask if I could help him “for a minute.” He has been building the cart that came with our riding lawnmower and needed an extra set of hands. In fact at one point he suggested we might need a third set of hands but since we are the only ones here, that was not to be.
But see, it is built and works. Now we just need to hitch it up and pull something.
Then back in the studio to start putting together blocks for an embroidery swap. Here are two but I actually finished three. I have 9 more to go but they are not due until Aug 1 so I am fitting them in between other projects.
The one thing I did not start was Judy’s feathers lessons. I am ready to start but decided I needed to get a couple of other things done and then will work at my own speed. I really like my Carpenters Star so I am a little nervous about making a mess of it. Oh, well………….
