Not Much Quilty Going On

I have actually done a little quilting the last couple of days but not all that much.  I continue to work on the million pieces quilt. I may have to raise that to a billion pieces due to inflation... As of this morning when I cleaned the cutting table a bit I had 30 9 1/2" blocks made.  I'm not sure if I will make it to the 60 or so I think I want.  Time will tell. 

Raggs and I took the car to be serviced on Tuesday.  We left the car and walked across the street to a big field where he immediately did his thing.  But, he got to run around a bit off leash and we did a little training on "come".  Sometimes he comes, sometimes he doesn't.  And, sometimes he sits carefully and watches me.  Ok, I think I am confusing him on stay and come.  Will retrain trainer and see if we can fix that.  Here he is with Santa Dog who is rarin' to go on a road trip!  We'll see if Raggs is rarin' to go later this week. 

This morning before I went to quilting I decided I want to make Bunny Hill Design's block of the month.  So, I did a bit of the prep work.  I looked over the cream fabric and I should be able to find a backing fabric from my collection.  And, now I have to decide if I want to buy a layer cake (oooh wouldn't the blocks look nice with a coordinated line of fabric?) or use what I have.  Easy (layer cake) or hard (pick fabric from all over the studio)?  Cost money or free?  Help the economy or help the studio?  Only time will tell.  I'll keep you posted. If I order tonight or even tomorrow I should have a layer cake by early next week.  Hum.

Time to get on to fixing dinner.  Happy quilting all!
