Long term quilt updated

IMG_0843   The quilt at the last posting.IMG_2256 (2)  The quilt now

I am still working on my mother’s Grandmother Flower Garden quilt.  There has been much progress.  I am at the point where I have to decide if I want it to be one block wider and where I want it to end.  I have enough blocks to continue on to the bottom with the width that it is now, but, most of the blocks that are left have the red and white striped fabric.  They do look better scattered further apart on the left or right edge.  I do have some red and blue fabric that I bought for the quilt.  Maybe they could separate the stripes.  But, do I want to hand quilt a big quilt or a smaller quilt?  Lots of decisions.  I’ll take it one step at a time and give another update when decisions are made.  I’ve been basting many white hexagons.  I seem to always run out and need more.IMG_2257 (2)  The pieces ready to add to the quilt.

I just realized that I have five long term quilts.  I did have six, but the Canadian 150 is finished,

The Temperature quilt has three months finished and I am up to date on this month’s high and low temperature.

The flower quilt has eight blocks now.

Leah Day’s block of the month has three of the four rows sewn together.

Dear Jane has several blocks ready to bind.  I am making Dear Jane in the pot holder method.

Oh, there are still six  There is the mile a minute that I work on when I feel like it  I have been rearranging the part of the attic that I call the sewing room annex.  I found more UFOs and three bins of mile a minute fabric.

I will never run out of fun things to do.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
