My 12 inch quilt

Quilt #1

I really have been quilting this year--but more tops than finishes are being done. This one is now hanging in the shop.

Design Wall Monday

More Hunter Star blocks on the wall--the blue centers are painter's tape with position notations!
Henrietta is bare--the quilt that was on her is done as is a shop sample. Don't know why I waited to re tension her--probably cuz I thought i wouldn't be able to do it! The initial problem was a bad prewound bobbin, so it has left the building. I'm looking forward to hand binding the sample and watching (listening) to a couple of movies tonight. Haven't decided what I'm in the mood for.

Everyday happenings....

No photos yet, but the hunter star blocks are happening--LOVE the look of them and this method is so easy (and foolproof!) The bathroom renovation is s l o w l y moving forward. You have no idea how many times I've looked at flooring--it's not happening again, so it has to be perfect!!! But we've narrowed it down to two choices--same kind, different color. The shower base and panels will be ordered hopefully today; measuring etc. is done. Thank goodness we will NEVER do this again! (But it will be fabulous.) Am being urged to go get my Breakfast Bomb--peanut butter and banana--yum!

Design Wall Monday

Well, it's only been a month....!! Went to our guild retreat in Homer and actually did some sewing (unlike some others I won't mention by name!). This was our mystery--Lake Clark by Grace L. I love it and will be doing more of the pattern, which if you know me is not a common occurrence. There are too many wonderful patterns to try out and sew little time!
I did mine with Asian, batiks and Jinny Beyer fabrics. There were kids, brights, florals, and everything else you could think of and they all looked great. Just have the borders to do--and I am about a quarter yard short of the last border fabric, so it won't be a wide as called for---have to make do. And will bind it in the red. Still have to re-tension Henrietta---I am very good at procrastination!
