Quilt as I go..
Monday night was spent quilting these blocks. They are from a pile of comfort quilt blocks that have been sitting here, staring at me. lol We've had some ladies lose loved ones in our online qroup so I thought I'd better get at least one of these done in case we want to send one on. I'm not sure yet how I want to put these together. If I use the traditional sashing to connect the blocks, I'm afraid I'll lose the secondary pattern that arises when the blocks are sewn together. But, that's the easiest way for me to do it. If you click on the picture, I think you get a closeup of the quilting. I just picked a design I thought would fit and ran with it.
While quilting last night, I decided I didn't want to cook. So, I called Pizza Hut. While placing the order, I got up from my sewing machine, intending to run into the den to ask Jim what he wanted on his pizza, when my shoe caught one of the cords under my table. I couldn't shake it off fast enough and so I pitched forward onto my knee. Good ol' carpet burn! Ouch. The phone flew out of my hand but I didn't lose the Pizza Hut person on the other end. Picked myself up, walked to the den, got Jim's order and limped back to my room. LOL I tell you, I've GOT to get this sewing room in order before I knock myself senseless!
Early day this morning so I best get going.
