My Sunday morning appointment called Saturday night to cancel, so I had an entire day to get some quilting done. Yes, actual quilting. The sewing table was all cleared off, as is necessary when I quilt. There are three sandwiched quilts to choose from. Should I start with the easiest one? Or the one that will take the most time?
Perhaps I will take some time first to think about the design for the applique border on my SAHR. I just finished a border and you all said such nice things about it, and I'm eager to continue. So I looked at images of applique online, and I pulled out many books from my shelves and leafed through them. Next came the graph paper and the colored pencils. (SQ1 rather than EQ7) I started sketching, and getting ideas for some template shapes. I think we're all ready to go with this now, but I have about two fewer hours for quilting.
Then an email popped up on my computer from my friend Vickie, with a link to this site: 4Patches4Hope. It is for a cause that I will gladly support, so off to my scrap basket I went, and I made a few 4 patches and prepared them for mailing today.
Then I saw yet another Schnibbles Full House on someones blog. I really want to make this, but I cannot purchase any new fabric. So what's a girl to do? Think hard. Get creative. I remembered that a couple of years ago I received 2 charm packs and another Schnibbles pattern for a gift. I hesitate to say this in public, but I've never really cared for the pattern, so it never got made. Perhaps it's time to decide that it never will be made, and use the charms for something else? Excellent idea! I bring you an almost completed modified Full House. The fabric is Old Primrose Inn, and I thought it would be perfect for constructing some houses.
So, how's the quilting coming along on those three quilts? Well, that's a topic for another day. When I actually do some quilting.
Contentedly sewing the day away.....Sunny
