After Patrick left, I got up and moved around. Got on the computer and checked out the QOV website. I as looking for the patterns. They have a block that they are collecting. It's due on the 15th of the month. I thought about doing it, but decided I won't. I have enough stuff to work on. I even checked out another blog site to see if it was a little better then this one. I like it but need to figure it out a little more before I think of changing. I'm actually thinking of putting the family recipes on that blog so my kids can find the recipes instead of calling me.
Went downstairs - can't believe how easy I fill the counter up and make a mess! I cleaned it up so I could use it. Now it looks worse, but then I didn't finish what I was doing today.
I started putting the square triangles on my guilt wall.
I as moving things around.
I was trying to decide how I like it. I still need to make more triangle squares.
Donna sent the photo of the finished top! I love it!! This was done by both of us. We even have someone to quilt it for us. I'm really loving this!!
Then I pulled out my scrap 9 patches blocks. I ended up taking out some of the work I did before. I need to make more half square triangles.
I got 5 blocks that are completed. I have about 3 other blocks that are close.
This is where I ended up. Didn't get to finish more blocks, but got plenty of 9 patches to get this done. This is going to be on heck of a big quilt. Not sure what the border will be, but chances are will be black.
I will get some more half square triangles set up tomorrow. That way I can work on both of the quilts again. I'm at a stopping point. I just hope I have enough muslin to finish this quilt. If not, will try another fabric that is close. Heck, it's a scrap quilt anyway so what difference will it make?!
I did do more on the Brazilian embroidery, but just haven't take another photo. I'm have fun today!
We bowled tonight and I didn't do so good. I did get above my average once. UGH. Looking forward to another day of Happy Quilting!
