For as long as I can remember, Saturdays are for laundry and cleaning-a quick whip-through so you can go and play in the sewing room. I can play anytime I want usually, but Saturdays still follow this schedule. I would say some habits become very deeply ingrained! After I whipped through this morning, I knew which project was calling me! When in Georgia, I bought this rainbow fabric for the border for the disappearing pinwheel rainbow quilt. I cut the strips on the lengthwise grain so keep the stripes just right-I think it is everything I wanted for the quilt!
This was a case of 'miters only' for the border plans. It worked out easily and now the quilt top joins the queue while I finish the quilt on the frame.
This is the one I'm working on now; the antique nine patches that Millie completed. I am quilting it freehand with a variety of patterns to echo the borders and then highlight the smaller blocks.
One nice part about the freehand work for quilts lately is that I can sit down while I do them. I cannot stand for the hours required for doing the pantographs. I will use them for smallers quilts as I can complete them in two hours instead of the 8-10 hours for a large quilt. It is going to work out well and I hope to have it done in a week!
I used the two left over skeins of Hawthorne yarn for a new sock-I am using one row per each skein and carrying the strands up the side seam for an invisible exchange. The interplay of colors is really making a very pretty sock! I hope you like it Marsel-it's for you!
