It was another productive day at the sewing machine.  I finished twelve nine patches.  They are all different and I still have to decide on sashing and borders.  I can’t decide if I want a print or a solid fabric.  I’ll just jump in tomorrow and do it. We are expecting a few days of rain.  As long as the power doesn’t go out, I can sew.   The Linus quilt should be finished by early next week.  I kept with my plan to cut all the scraps into precuts.  All the scraps from that project have been cut into 2 1/2″ squares. They are in a box with other precuts from earlier projects.  When the box is full, I’ll make a quilt with what is in the box.  It should be a colorful quilt.  It’s only half full now so it will be a while before I have to deal with it.

The sewing room was cleaned today.  It looks much better, but I found lots of quilts that need finishing.  The ironing board is in the kitchen so that I can get up and walk instead of just sitting.  Miss Molly rests between the two rooms.  That way, she can keep her eye on me wherever I go.  She does have a mat to rest on in the sewing room, but doesn’t use it.

IMG_1685I like to make striped table runners that have the ends cut so they come to a point,  There are triangles left over from the cutting and they make little hexagon table mats.  Four sets of triangles were in the UFO bin and I finished them today.  I don’t have the runners so I must have given them away.  The triangles sometimes are different but as long as they are color coordinated, they are pretty. These will go in the give away bin.

I need to finish some of my bigger projects so that the UFO basket will look more empty.

Have a great day and happy quilting.
