Once again my design wall only features my owls. I now have the top of the quilt ready to put together. I am not doing to do it until the rest of the blocks are ready but I am feeling like I am making progress.
Enough so that I decided it was time to start another quilt. This will be my take on the jelly roll race. The strips are black and white and are separated by various batik pieces.
I got the very very long first seem done on Saturday but that’s as far as I got as we spent Sunday on the road.
This is probably going to be a charity quilt. I don’t know how big it will be because the roll was hand made and I believe it had more than the usual number of strips. Anyway, I should have this top sewn together this week and then it will be ready for quilting.
That means that I also need to get quilting on the baby quilt that is currently waiting: the backing is already on the frame. It begins to sound like I have a lot to do, doesn’t it?
Today DH and I did a walk through an antique mall we like. While there I saw this bench. I immediately wished I had had it when my 45 year old daughter was a teen. And then she could have used it when her daughter was a teen. And now it could be passed down because said granddaughter is having a daughter later this year …….. we wish her luck.
I will be linking with Patchwork Times and What a Hoot. And now I better get busy with all those projects I have lined up. Gari
