Weekend Stitching: Blooms for a Rainy Day

We had a rainy Sunday and now it's a chilly Monday.  Getting out of bed this morning was hard.  Even more so because I got to take last Friday off.  Since sewing doesn't bother my shoulder, I did a lot of that this weekend.  Friday was spent prepping Zombies in Paris for shipping out to Trudy for quilting.  It's all pressed and packaged, ready for mailing at lunch today.  

Since the backing for the Zombie quilt is now off the big design wall there was room to move Blooms and Butterflies off the small design wall.

 Blooms and Butterflies
Bloom block by Lea Brummett, setting by Kate

By the end of the weekend all the Back Porch Bloom blocks were sashed together.  There was also room to lay out the blocks for the pieced border to determine what colors are needed to be cut.  Only two more red bordered squares are needed, but I need 4 blue squares and 12 more butterflies.  The bordered squares and butterflies are my current leaders and enders project.  There's a blue border next, then another blue dotted border before the pieced border will be added.  So I've still got some time before moving those blocks up in the assembly line.  Once I do that, then I'll need a new leaders and enders project.  Hmm, I'll have to give that some thought.

The small design wall didn't stay empty for long.  But now it's time for work, so I'll just have to share those pics for later.
