Making 9 patch blocks with this fabric.. made a test block tonight and it turned out really well, esp using more of the blue flower material than the brown back ground.. I need to change the thread color to something with less contrast. White is standard, but I need it to blend in more, so the grey/blue thread is my choice over the dark Brown .
Once I get these blocks made, I’ll be able to get back to quilting a couple of tops/flimsey’s so they will be ready for Christmas. I have 2 of them sandwiched and ready.
It has gotten pretty cool around here, so I bundled up in my sweats and light jacket..even put on socks!! If this keeps up, I’ll be getting my electric blanket out and on my bed! When it gets cold, I want to Hybernate. I could sleep 16 hours a day without even tryin when the Frost Hits the Pumpkin.
DD#2 had her CT & X-rays taken of her right leg/knee this afternoon.. and will get into the ortho guy sooner.. I have to check the calendar in the dining area to see when the 21’st is….(instead of the 24th. There is a Quilt show here on the 23rd thru the 26th..It’s about 5 blocks from here and I really WANT to go.. It’s my first show, other than the Fair Grounds.. If all goes well and I can show something of mine, I’m thinking of doing an entry….next year!
