Okay, I seem to be getting back into the swing of things and have a bunch of stuff to talk about this week. And I remembered why I do so many projects at once instead of focusing on one at a time.
After doing another 12 of these birdbath blocks I was ready to move on to something else. Thankfully, I'm DONE! No more of these blocks for me! I got started doing my layout. I have 9 extra blocks for the back. Keep in mind this is just the center of the quilt. Once I get these together and get the final measurements I have to decide on how many and how thick to make the borders.
I did start another little project this week. I saw on someone's blog that they were using their Petit Four for hexagons. I can't remember who it was so if it was you, give me a shout out and I would love to give you credit because the idea is genius! I have a Petit Four of Circa 1934 and I decided to use them for hexagons. I love having some hand work when I'm stuck watching Sesame Street at 6am! Now tell me, what should I do with the hexagons? A pillow, an apron, mini quilt?
And I got done my curtains for the dining room but this is still technically a WIP because hubby needs to hang the board for it. I'm a little too clutzy at this point in my pregnancy to be climbing ladders. Seriously.
I also did an initial fabric pull for my son's quilt! I've been hoarding my Neptune for something special and I think this qualifies. So I pulled a lot of Neptune and Prince Charming. The only thing I'm wondering about is the yellows on the top of this pile (the Prince Charming). Would you leave it in for contrast or is it just too different from the rest?
Fast Forward pattern with a Navy or Charcoal background. Technically her patterns use precuts, but I haven't found a jelly roll where I like the whole roll enough yet so I'll just cut my own strips. That's why I pulled so many fabrics.
And for now, I'm also piling up my work for Fridays PMQG sewing night. Probably going to focus on my neglected Double Wedding Ring. Exciting to have a little social sewing time, and maybe do a little boy fabric shopping. Btw - did I mention that I am now the Vice President for the Philly Modern Quilt Guild. Well, only until February when Anna Ziegner will take over for the rest of the year. Looking forward to helping the Guild grow!
