I also made one of the foldable boxes. Still need 6 or so more but at least I got one more done. I've got them cut out and waiting so I can't really clean off part of my cutting table until all of them are made. (Yet, I don't need them for a few months.)
Then I decided to try making some giant flying geese using the 4-at-a-time method. Whoa! Super easy and fast to make these blocks. Finding a piece of fabric big enough without cutting into my yardage took the most time. It took me a while to find a fat quarter that I hadn't cut into! I've been using the white off and on for a year or two. Not much left of it now.
I spent Friday attending an educational presentation by a representative of AccuQuilt. I've been using mine for several years but I learned quite a few useful things. And, of course there were quilts for inspiration. Here are a couple of quilts I really liked.
I recently bought this kite die so I took a picture of this example. (I also have a Quiltmaker magazine showing directions for making a similar quilt.)
I wish I could remember how this block was made! I liked the look of this and some day I'll make myself a similar one. I have no idea which dies were used on the table runner. I bet I have a ruler that I could use to make it. (Hum, maybe two different rulers.) Hum, I wonder what type of batting was used as many of the quilts were very wrinkled. On the other hand, they'd been folded and in a car for several weeks!
Pat and I celebrated our 44th anniversary by going to the local dinner theater. "Some Enchanted Evening" was a musical review of Rodgers and Hammerstein's light operas. We had a great time. The food was pretty good and the cast was wonderful. No doubt we'll plan to go again sometime.
I was very pleased to actually get everything done on my goals list last week.
