BLOOPER AND FINISH
This week was sort of a stop and start period. I was working on quilting on my pink Project Linus quilt. My shoulders would get so sore I would have to limit my sessions to one or two lines of quilting. Then came the binding. I’m lucky to have almost two yards of a very adaptable fabric, irregular stripes of several colors. It seems to blend with so many fabrics, so I’m going to keep it for binding.
So by fits and starts I finished the quilt today, after breaking four, yes four machine needles. I finally found the cause today when I found a loose screw, causing the needles to bend and snap. Fortunately I had plenty of spares.
Here is my finished quilt, all set to go to our guild charity day on May 14.
Today I rushed to make a yellow Sawtooth Star block for my monthly RSC18 collection. In my haste I did not check back on any of my other blocks, like the pink monkeys on the lime green, which I did last month. So this is my blooper block. Maybe I should give it a name sometime.
I guess it will go into my orphan block stash. We never know when they might find a home.
That’s about it for news here. I’m still waiting to see some actual green growth. I hard someone say they saw some tulip leaves popping up, but that’s all. I look forward to seeing lots of lovely quilts and maybe some pretty flowers from all of you.
