My weekend has started off in a very nice, quilty way. I took Friday off and just stayed home and sewed. It was drizzly and cold here (40's F), so a great day to stay inside. And I'm very happy that my daughter gave me her "reject" digital camera, so I now have a working one again. Life is good.
I got borders put on my Tonya Summer 08 quilt. I had intended to use a bright pink instead of that purple. I think the purple is too dark. Or it should trade places with the blue. Right now I don't want to think about it, so it'll sit and marinate for a while.
I put together this crumb-blocks top. Each row (except one, I think) has at least one block with a fingerspelled letter in it. I like how this turned out (I especially like the plain blocks that are from world map fabric) and like that it's a little larger than average (50" x 68"), so I'm contemplating where to donate this one. I think it'll stay in North America because that's where American Sign Language is used. Someone who gets this quilt might even be a sign user. I'm trying to decide if I want to go to the effort to make sure that happens, or if I should just take my chances.
I made these two star blocks for Leslie at the Sunshine group.
And now I'm working on a quilt for Home of the Brave. I agreed to assemble the quilt top for the coordinator who is a member of my guild.
It is sort of my "obligation" sewing weekend.. trying to finish blocks and other projects that I need to donate here and there or give as gifts. Tomorrow I'll have to face reality and do some housework, but for now I'm loving the sewing time.
