Once again, my lovely assistant Callie has agreed to help me display my latest blocks for my kit quilt.
You may remember that I completed five quilt blocks last week. I need 15 blocks for the pattern or 20 if I want to expand to a queen-sized quilt. Thankfully, the kit included enough fabric for a queen-sized quilt, but I will need to come up with the additional 5 block patterns myself. I think I'm up to the challenge. : )
So this weekend, between going shopping for a new chick coop (pictures later - once we get it assembled!) and trading out our old brush-hog for a different old brush-hog, I was able to sew an additional 5 blocks. So here they are. Callie, if you please...
Since I just noticed it myself, I'll have to get that fixed tonight before I forget about it again. On to the next block.
Christmasy though. Oh well. I'm definitely not changing it.
And now for the grand finale for the weekend... drum roll please, Callie...
CALLIE! Please pay attention!
So with the five blocks above (one and maybe two of them scheduled for surgery tonight to fix "problems") and the five from last week...
I have ten finished blocks. I'm making pretty good progress. Half-way there!
And some by-the-way news... Mom called me at work yesterday to ask a favor. It seems that the program chair at her Pieces and Patches guild (which meets during the day, so I'm not a member) asked her to give a trunk show in June. And get this... They want her to do a trunk show of MY quilts! I still think it was just an April Fool's Day joke, but she swears not.
Oh dear! Do you realize how much cat hair that means that I have to get cleared off of my quilts before I can send them off with her? Oh my. I'll probably be able to build at least three more full-sized cats and a kitten with all that fur!
I guess I need to get started on that stack of binding, too. Six quilts waiting. Sigh. Mount UFO, here I come. Anyone want to help with binding? Anyone? Callie, come back here!
Later. I have to go corral a worker cat or two to help me with this binding. Here, kitty, kitty. See, I have tuna...
