May I complain about the weather for just a short paragraph? It's hot and humid here. Three days ago it was low humidity and lovely with temps in the mid 70s. I want that weather back! But I doubt we'll see it until October. Sigh. And for those of you where it REALLY is hot 🌞-- my heart understands it's miserable. I hope the hot weather breaks soon.
I've one picture of my whole design wall to share what I've been working on this week. So left to right my projects are String Blocks with Positivity - 11 done but piled behind the 2 visible blocks below; Ombre Log Cabin blocks, 3 4 " garlic knots (those were just for fun but I suppose I should make some more. Everything to the right are mostly odd ball blocks I've found with a few I'm actually, kind of, working on. The top right is a village scene that needs to be quilted with the backing fabric next to it. (It's going to take forever to quilt it so I just haven't been motivated to start it!)
I know I've made more string blocks and Positivity blocks since I took this photo. But I've sewn all of the Ombre Log Cabin blocks that I've cut out. Time to get back to cutting more of them.
I am sharing one of my customer's quilts that I finished in March this year.This was made by Marlyn.
Size: 40 x 59"
Thread: So Fine 451
Pattern: Diane by My Creative Stitches
Batting: Warm and White
I'm pretty sure these are batiks. I know it was great to stitch out. Below it's still on the long arm being quilted. Do you see that blue painter's tape? That marks the center of the quilt and where I line up the next row, which is already in progress in the picture.
Now, on to my goals. Look at all those check marks!
Finish quilting Remade Log Cabin✅; figure amt of fabric used —didn't do this
More Ombré Log Cabins✅
More Positivity blocks✅
More string blocks ✅
This week it's more of the same. What I didn't have on the list was working on the June (purple) Table Scraps project. I got the top totally done. Quilting and binding it is on this new goal list.
Trim and bind remade log cabin
Continue making Ombre Log Cabins Blocks
Finish string blocks
Quilt and bind purple table runner
Hopefully it will be a great week of quilting this week. The weather will continue to be hot so I'll be staying inside a lot.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
