Finished (or Not) Friday – 3/12/2021

Thursday I attended my first “public-ish” event in a year.  My nephew’s senior project was directing a one act play. Masks were required, they were taking your temperature at the door and like a big exclusive event your name had to be on the list. I enjoyed myself and hope he gets a good grade on the project. Needless to say, it was 10:30 by the time I got home.  Fortunately I had all the pieces cut for this block. It’s the 2nd one from my Guild’s BOM. This is the “Finish”.

As for the “or Not”, the wedding quilt is still on the frame with no new progress and the music theme ‘jelly roll race’ quilt is still hanging for inspiration. If you look real close you’ll see an Easy Breezy Block.  A third of the month is gone and I’ve only made 2 blocks this month.

Design Wall Monday – 3/8/2021

I’ve reached the halfway point in the computerized quilting of the wedding quilt. This is the center block of the quilt.

I started the next row of circle feathers and got a notice I was running out out of bobbin thread. I decided that was a good time to stop as I need to wind more bobbins.  I started with 4 bobbins. I’ll wind another 4, but expect to need a couple more before I finish the rest of the quilting.

While the computer was quilting, I was cutting and piecing.  A number of years ago I cut 2-1/2″ strips from all of my music fabric to make a jelly roll race backing for a quilt.  When I was finished I had a 44″ x 70″ piece left over. Over the past few days I’ve cut strips from the music fabric – as it turns out over twice as many as I needed to add a enough to make this 60″ x 70″. Of course now that it’s “a top”, I’m not sure I like it.  I feel it needs “something”.   So, I’m not sure this is really a “top” yet.
