Happy 4th of July! We are planning to spend the day with my family. Mom has promised fried chicken and potato salad for dinner. Not sure what else is on the agenda, as is typical we'll make it up as we go along.
Design wall #1 has nothing on it because I finished adding the final borders to the Buck-A-Block quilt.
The back is done, both are pressed and folded up ready to go to Trudy for quilting. I'm really happy with how this quilt turned out, but it doesn't look like what I had envisioned when I started it. I'm going to need a new name for this quilt. The dark fabric in the blocks is a print with Texas blue bonnets. The last border was supposed to be TX blue bonnets too, but that didn't work with the rest of the setting. So now I need a new name. Any suggestions?
Design wall # 2 has 3 rows of the purple and yellow scrap blocks laid out on it.
Only one row, 7 blocks, left before this leader and enders project can be set together. So what's going up on design wall #1? I need to get going on my niece's quilt if I want to have it done in time to give it as a Christmas present. But Shay over at Quilting in My Pyjamas posted a pattern on her blog this weekend for a Christmas quilt that I'm dying to make. Decisions, decisions. I guess there is no reason why I can't work on both.
