No excuses--I have been quilting, but it just does not seem like anything earth shattering, more like just puttering around with blocks and binding. I have been keeping up with the Farm Girl Vintage 2 QAL. These are last week's blocks the Bright Zinnia Block and the Barn Cat Block. I made an orange tabby because at one point when I was a kid, I think we had four orange tabbies at once! I did six inch versions of both blocks.
This weekend, I made the Busy Beehive Block and the Cheerful Tulips Block. The beehive is 12 inches and the tulips are six inches in my plan.
I am also keeping up with the Ombre Gems QAL. Here are the six blocks and half blocks for this week
and last week's two indigo blocks. We only have two more blocks to go and then trimming and putting the top together.
I spent some time this week ripping out machine quilting at Rachel's. Her longarm had a timing issue on the last row of one of my quilts, so we spent some time ripping it out and catching up. Her hubby brought us a bottle of wine to enjoy as we ripped away, despite the unsewing part we had a good visit.
This is my Threadology Twisted that had the final quilted row messed up. She was quilting it with a sweet flower design and it looked amazing. The repair tech will be at her house on Tuesday, so hopefully her machine will be back up and running, so she can finish the quilting and I can bind it. I think this is actually one of my all time favorite quilts I have ever made! I grabbed a fun batik quilt of hers to bind in the meantime.
I have really needed a day off from work, but with the whole week off for Thanksgiving coming I am just trying to hang in there...
