My design wall today is devoted to Carol Doak’s Mystery BOM blocks. I have moved these blocks so many times I get confused. And it isn’t easy because these are paper pieced, with the paper still on, and they don’t stick to the wall like regular blocks.
This was the wall on Saturday. Not a lot of change but enough to make me happier.
After I finished rearranging the blocks I spent some time planning the quilting what will become some very large negative spaces. This is kind of me sticking my toe into the modern quilt “fad” but not making a real commitment. Anyway, today I hope to cut the cream fabric to fill in the blanks and then begin sewing the blocks together. I plan 3 small borders and then it will be ready to get into the queue for quilting.
I also got the second of the FatCatPattern Owls done or at least finally fused onto the background fabric.
I also did the applique stitching on the three FCP fish that we have gotten so far this year.
I had planned to get a lot of the above sewing done Sunday but it was a beautiful day (sun and 84F) so when DH suggested we go for a drive and get some yogurt at Chills, off we went. It was a wonderful afternoon of warm sunshine and the wind in my hair.
And now I need to make up some of that really fun time by getting some blocks sewn together, some borders put on a couple of quilt tops, and piece a backing so I can get another quilt on the frame. Oh, and I also need to bind the quilt I finished last week.
My, that’s a lot to do. Maybe I’ll go lie down first.
