I finally have three quilts done and ready to mail to Wrap Them in Love. Now for the hard part: finding a box the right size. Here are the three quilts for WTIL:
a panel with an added border, 36 x 48
nine patches made in memory of Bev B., 40 x 60
a panel I bought at a garage sale, about 40 x 65?
I am also sending two quilts to Central Ohio Binky Patrol:
crumb blocks, 55 x 75
more crumb blocks, 40 x 60
After finishing these quilts I worked on crumb blocks. I have over 60 of them done and another 20 or so in progress. I guess the quilt gods decided I had done enough for now. My rotary cutter, containing a brand new blade, jumped up and slammed into my finger and fingernail. Boy, did it hurt! And bled all over the bathroom sink while I struggled to clean myself up and find bandages. After I got it wrapped up it continued to really hurt and throb.. so I took something for the pain. I am glad to report that it worked, and I am now able to sit still and type. (Before it kicked in -- I paced around the house yelling "please cut off my hand!") I think I'll survive, but I'm done sewing for the night.
