There's been no blogging, no quilting, no piecing and I still don't have my taxes done! What is going on here besides nothing, you ask? I'm trying to figure that out myself as I see it's been a full week since I last posted.
OK, I did drive 800 miles in 3 days on the weekend. Some how I also managed to gain 6 pounds in 5 days at the same time. hmmmmm
And I did "help" with a finish on a top. Here is Paula K's top that she has been working on for over a year. Yes, life gets in her quilting time too, just like the rest of us.
Fussy cut centers for the churn dash blocks, each one 12.5" square.
The fabrics for this were purchased several years ago in Sisters and Bend OR. The border striped print is not available for love nor money and her center kept growing. When I arrived Paula had the top completed except for the borders. After a few scratches on paper and a little bit of calculations, we came up with the corner blocks to fit the width of the border.
The top was not going to get a border trim as this is big enough for a full pillow tuck, but after we got the sides and bottom all finished, we had this one extra strip that was a partial print from the border fabric, it fit right across the top, so voila, a border on all four sides. Now my fun begins because I brought this home to quilt.
Sew something today,
