It has been an unprecedented week. Like many, I was watching what was unfolding an hour north of where I live. But in the end, I was and am shocked to see fellow Americans who rioted and broke into the U.S. Capitol. January 20th can not come fast enough for me. I pray that Mr. Trump doesn't create anymore chaos.
Back to my quilting life. Here's my to do list from last week.
Cut 10 more Glorified 9 patch blocks; sew together✔️ all cut out, more than half sewn.
Begin cutting Ohio Stars R, W, B quilt On hold until this week
Quilt something on Long Arm ✔️ customer quilt finished and returned.
Continue hand quilting on Christmas Quilt✔️ It's going to take quite a few more weeks.
This week I'm going to be working on. . .
Finish Glorified 9 patches
Continue hand quilting on Christmas Quilt
Begin cutting Ohio Stars R, W, B quilt
Finish Cheese and Cracker top
Cheese and Crackers is a pattern by Atkinson Designs. Years ago I decided I'd use it for my Thirties fabrics. Several months ago I cut out and sewed all the blocks and the units needed for the border. This is as far as I got because I ran out of the background fabric, Kona Snow. Luckily, my local JoAnn Store had a yard of it left. This picture makes the fabrics look dull. (I sure hope the whole thing perks up as I finish it.) If I can, I plan to get the borders on and then finish sewing the units of the border together. (The lines are a flannel fabric behind the quilt. I'm surprised how much they show through.)
In between what I was working on I did get a few odd blocks done. Here's a bright Easy Breezy block. Once I get my design wall cleared off again I'll take my collection of Easy Breezy blocks out and see how they look.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
