This is my kind of weather........blue sky, light breeze and moderate/unseasonable temperatures! Opened windows and have been sewing on my "mystery quilt" for my second niece. I had to put one block together and out of curiosity, I counted the pieces in the block..........65 of them! Certainly not a record I'm sure and many of you may think that "normal" but, to me it is a lot! Am working on finishing the blocks then cut sashing, make corner pieces, etc and THEN will be able to see my finished project.
Weather is so lovely am going to crank up the grill and do a pork loin tonight. Have missed grilling this last winter, didn't do too much!
I would probably have Gretchen's quilt finished but have been enjoying reading the blogs on this site! Thank you CT.......know a lot of folks tell you same but wanted to add my own gratitude!
Other goal for the day is to mark a couple of doll quilts so I can hand piece them. Seasoned quilters may not mark their 1/4" seams but I need to. Do enjoy hand piecing. Did a series of them as a tip of the hat to my Mother.....she was a doll collector, seamstress and had just begun quilting. Lynne is encouraging me to try hand quilting and they will be my first attempts after a little practice.
Hope everyone is having a great day!
