All 24 quilt blocks are done: stitched together in six columns of six blocks each and seams pressed.* Next steps:
- 1 -join the six columns;
- 2- buy backing (I looked through my stash and didn’t find anything I really liked so I’ll stop at the quilt shop tomorrow after I meet with my Thurs stitching friends);
- 3 – give to the long arm quilter to stitch her magic joining the three layers – top, batting and backing – together… and then
- 4 – Voila, one quilt ready for the May quilt show and, and…
- 5 – finish the two quilts on my design wall, also slated for the quilt show.
I’m about half through Digital Minimalism and discovered the other day I missed the author’s book signing last Sat, here in DC. He actually lives in Takoma Park, MD, a suburb of DC. Oh well… On my TBR list: 3 memoirs: Educated by Tara Westover; Inheritance by Dani Shapiro; and Anne Patchett’s Truth & Beauty.
As for knitting, I continue to stitch a row or several most days on the Christmas stocking and Log Cabin/ 9- patch lap robe. Waiting patiently in the wings is a project I promised myself I would not start until (if ever?) those two were nearly completed… I am seeing the end! I also have a couple other KNiPs ( knit projects in progress – or not) that need some attention; determined to do so in 2019!
Time to resume my stint at the sewing machine and even go for a walk – sun’s in/out today and the temps are in the high 40s! Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday!
