In March, Marge of Delaware Quilts and Mysteries for Relay gave her mystery participants a Super Duper Easy quilt mystery. Well, it was a super duper easy quilt but it was really time consuming. I got nearly all the pieces made on the day of the mystery. So I kept plugging away on it. One thing I wanted to do before I got serious about this move was make these pieces into a quilt top. During the last few weeks I've been getting the rows together and yesterday I finally got all the rows sewn together. I haven't taken the time to iron it ... and I probably won't until I decide to finish it. I'm thinking I'll finish the stars on all four sides. It was a great way to use up stash. But for now its packed up. Next mystery is scheduled for late July... and I plan to be ready for it!
Here's a little bit of eye candy. Jen wanted to make a table runner for a friend. Brian designed it, Jen produced it. Jen and I basted it when we were down last week.And, for those of you who are Ragg's fans ... Pat and Raggs were waiting for me at one of the "rest" stops. We are all pretty tired of driving. We've been up and down between Virginia and Pennsylvania about three times in about 5 weeks. Plus another two trips for me between Rhode Island and the MQX show and Maryland for FCQ's show. I'm happy to stay home for a few more weeks even if I will be really busy.
Tomorrow's plans include quilting a charity quilt. And, maybe I should get another box packed. I've done about 3 so far. Hum, I probably need to speed up the packing some also. But my distraction (fun) with sewing is coming to an end tomorrow. Bummer, but I'll be much happier if I pack my own sewing stuff! And, I'll know what's where when I get to the other end.
