Looky, looky, I actually have something on the design wall besides the Owl blocks (which are just to the right of this charity quilt top. I am calling it Nothing is all Black and White. The colored bits are batiks cut at random sizes
I have the binding sewn, just need to press it.
However that is going to have to wait as the frame has this baby quilt on it. I am using Minkie, again, as the backing but this time I did not put batting between the top and the backing. I am having some tension problems, I think because there is no batting to stabilize it, so it is taking a little longer than I planned.
This is how I am quilting the plain blocks and then there are swirls in the owl blocks.
Another thing that has slowed down my quilting progress is that I think I have developed a pinched nerve that is negatively affecting my right arm. I am pretty much all right when I am sitting but when I stand up I am experiencing pain and tingling like my arm is going to sleep. And half of my thumb is asleep all the time. So I am mostly knitting with just a little sewing until I see the Dr. on the 20th and start figuring out what is wrong and what can be done about it. Meanwhile I have been learning how to live with ice bags which seems to help, until I stand up.
I will, as always, be linking up with Patchwork Times. Have a great week. Gari
