Aimee was playing around with some of my extra bow tie blocks and came up with this layout. Hum, I never thought of offsetting the blocks. I still need to finish another bow tie top that I have been working on. It got sidelined while I finished up the Million Pieces.
The turkey wall hanging was done and on the wall by Thanksgiving. Yea. Unfortunately, he'll be put away soon because it's time to bring out the Christmas decorations.
We had a great weekend with Jen, Brian and Sophia and Aimee and Kevin. Friday we went to see the new Harry Potter movie. Brian, who doesn't really like HP stayed home with Sophia. After the movie we all met at a wonderful Mexican restaurant. Yum. Brought home enough left overs so everyone had at least one more meal. And, of course, turkey left overs were and continue to be great.
Here's Sophia and her mommy sharing some special laughs. Sophia was great fun to have around. (Um, Sophia, how come you wouldn't fall asleep for your nap on Saturday? -- that wasn't so much fun!) She's getting a real personality.
Up today -- sew the rows together of the rainbow bow tie quilt. Iron the backing. Load it on Ruthie and do free motion quilting. Oops... need to think of which thread to use. Maybe a variegated thread. I'll have to see what I have upstairs. Then on to the binding. Hopefully the whole quilt will be done tomorrow.
Don't forget to check other blogs to see what's on their design walls. Visit Judy's Patchwork Times to start your tour. I'm off to breakfast and then sew.
