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.
I 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.
