Here are the pieces for Sarah's quilt.
This was taken yesterday before I sewed any together. It all has to be laid out and assembled carefully so the right hexagons match up. I am now sewing the blocks into 18 rows. Because these are hexagons there are all sorts of funny angles -- I'm ripping once for every 3 to 4 pieces that are correct. Not fast sewing. The cool part is there are no inset seams because the hexagons are sewn into rows as a half hexagon and then the rows are sewn together. Unfortunately, I'm getting bored, tired, ____ (fill in the blank) and I am only sewing about 3 to maybe 4 hours a day and not all of it is working on this quilt. I've got about 5 rows sewn together with another 5 partially sewn together. I've got to up my output. I may go sew tonight for another 30 or 40 minutes to get some more rows done. I really like the fabrics -- they are Mary Engelbreit's Garden of Flowers. I won a jelly roll which is what I used with some additional fabric that blends. I've got a yellow solid for the first border and a green tone on tone for the second border. I'm going to hate to let this go but I think Sarah will like the happy colors.
So folks -- this is what I saw Thursday afternoon at the on ramp to 84 east.
And, one wasn't enough -- there was another one.
Do you know what these are?
Here's my guess:
There are several wind turbines on the crest of the hills here in the Poconos. I think these are the blades for the wind turbines. Of course, I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure. Pat isn't so sure.
No more quilting tonight -- I'm tired. I may do a bit of knitting while I am watching an old movie, The Shop Around the Corner. (You've Got Mail is the updated version of it.)
