On Design Wall Monday, I listed 4 things which I needed to get done by Friday morning. And by golly I think it’s going to happen.
First, finish Eeyore.
Next, cut 320 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ bricks for Sydney’s quilt. It is done and sitting in front of the sewing machine she uses when she visits. I wonder if she’ll be ready for them?
The third thing was to get the quilt I’m sewing on this weekend cut out. Done – well except for the borders, but I’ll deal with those later. I’ve even made the first block.
The final thing on my list is get the quilt on the zippers for the long arm. Well, I haven’t done that yet, but I have pulled it out and now I’m trying to decide on the thread. variegated or Black. My first instinct is to go with the black thread. It will however stand out in the blocks. On the other hand the variegated thread will stand out in the sashing and disappear in the blocks.
Once I get Eeyore in the wash and the quilt on the zippers I’m going to add a 5th thing — prep some leader/enders. I’m thinking I’ll pull down the Sew Scrappy project I’m doing. Lots of 1-1/2″ squares to make into 9-patches and 25-patches.
