It’s well into February and so far I haven’t been able to sew or quilt as much as I would like to. Maybe, I can do more during the rest of the month.
I have finished quilting the first quilt on the Grace frame. It has been a learning experience. I’ve learned a lot. It will be much faster to load the next quilt on the frame. I know that I can’t just jump in and expect quality work. I have to take baby steps and practice, practice and more practice. I originally thought that the little quilt was doomed, but off the frame, it’s not bad. It needs a few tweaks and it will be fine for a baby quilt. I hope that it will be well used and loved.
I have the center of the Ten commandments bed runner finished. It needs two borders and then it can be quilted. I had planned to complete it last weekend, but it is still sitting, waiting for completion.
The Frolic Mystery quilt is still in pieces. All the pieces have been pressed and organized. There are 41 blocks with some other pieces in this quilt. We are supposed to have a snow storm tomorrow. Maybe, I can work on these two projects and finish piecing one of them.
I have changed the wall hanging that is over the sofa. In January, I had a gray and yellow piece.
It was drab and gloomy. I was so glad to take it down and replace it with a red and white embroidered piece.
The little monthly piece has been changed also. It’s a pretty little valentine
The Blockhead quilt has come back from the long arm quilter. I didn’t like the quilt when it was finished, but the long arm quilter made it come alive with her quilting. It is very nice now. The quilt is queen size so it will take a long time to bind, unless I make a flange binding. That is a good possibility. I might even put it on my bed for a while.
The new Blockhead for this year has come out. It is into week three already. I’m going to save the instructions to a file for a while. I shouldn’t start anything new until I finish some of the quilts that I’ve started. The new Blockhead instructions have three different sizes. I will decide which one to make when I decide to start.
My first set of blocks for the Round Robin exchange are finished. My secret Valentine project is finished and off to my secret Valentine. The Maine challenge is almost finished. It just needs borders. It is so good to use the word “finished”.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
