I spent about an hour cutting the fabric
but when I walked through the kitchen to the sewing room, I noticed the farmer had been in the garden picking yellow beans.
The quilt went on the back burner as I had to cut off the ends, wash the beans and blanch them for the freezer. This is our second picking and one more should get us through the winter.
I had a pattern all drafted up for these fabrics, but I decided to go with something easy. Anne very kindly figured out the quilt on EQ as my brain would not kick in to change the design.
We changed it up a bit again!
This time I decided to make the sides 16 1/2" x 12 1/2" to widen it out and not have to make borders.
Same lengths, just the two side panels wider.
I decided to make just one block at a time and by noon I had this much accomplished.
Mindless sewing is not mindless
You really should pay attention to what you are doing!
I did a bit of "reverse stitching" and got back to it.
By 3:30 in the afternoon, I was done.
Of course it was a bit breezy outside.
Not complaining, just stating!
You will notice that I switched the cutting up on the white fabric. I bet if I hadn't said anything you would not even have looked. I had to. I didn't have enough. I didn't think it would show that much......
now to make a backing and get it quilted!
I am thrilled to announce that my BFF is now a Great Gramma! Her granddaughter presented her with the most beautiful wee girl over the week-end. I'm just betting that Jan is over the moon.
Congratulations to the whole family; Krista, Chris, (mom and Dad) Kim, Glen, (Nanny and Poppy) Tyler (Uncle) and Jan, not only my BFF but now someone who has the best bragging rights in the world!
