I wasn't nearly as productive as I was hoping during the past week. But I did manage to quilt up three flimsies; two of them were paid gigs for other people.
While my husband was out of town, I spent way too much time streaming TV, but I was usually working on planning out future quilting projects. I ordered a blue and yellow print for the border and backing of Marianne's bed quilt so I put off cutting out the fabrics because I'd prefer to make sure to use fabrics that coordinate well with it.

Also, I think I finally have a plan for quilting my Snake River quilt flimsy.
When I ran across this border block in Donna Kleinke's Aspen line of pantographs, it seemed like it was practically tailor-made for the Snake River blocks.
|I added the triangle pattern to the corner and made a|
few minor changes to the completed block.
I played around with a lot of the pieces to make the units for the border and I think this is going to be a fun, but challenging, project. I'm hoping to get started on it after I finish Marianne's quilt.
I'm linking up with Tuesday ToDo.
The fabric you order for quilt backing looks very nice, I love yellow and blue quilts! I can't wait to see your Snake River quilt quilted, that's a lovely quilt. Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
Thanks Gretchen. I'm looking forward to the challenge of that quilting project.Delete
Sounds like you had a really productive week, even if you didn't get to your entire list. Good luck with your plans for this week's stitching.ReplyDelete
It definitely could have been worse, but I had so many plans for my husband's absence. Oh well, maybe next time.Delete
I think you did good to quilt up 3 flimsies. And planning more projects is always needed;)ReplyDelete
Thanks Vicki. I am glad I could still work on something while I was watching TV.Delete
LOVE that blue and yellow print. That is a beautiful panto and really does look perfect for your Snake River quilt - I look forward to seeing it. Thank you for sharing with To Do Tuesday!ReplyDelete
Thanks Linda. Thanks for hosting the link-up.Delete
Quilting 3 flimsies is a good week! Your Snake River quilt is amazing.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I keep trying to tell myself that but I did have many more plans that I hoped to accomplish while the husband was away.Delete
That quilt design really looks like it was made for the quilt. Have fun working on that one.ReplyDelete
I hope I will. It does look like it will be a challenge to get everything aligned correctly, but it's all part of the learning process.Delete
That will be a stunning quilt!!ReplyDelete
