I did finish the back, but I don’t have a picture of it right now. I’ll try to remember to take one when I baste the quilt.
Time out for a little music humor I saw on a bumper sticker.
In preparation for Saturday’s hand piecing, I printed and cut quite a few shapes. And then, like an idiot, I made the star out of the exact same fabric I used in the first rosette star. Grrrr! They will have to stay away from each other in the quilt!
Then I had to decide on what the next round would be. Here is the picture I took to try and determine which of three that I liked best.
I couldn’t really make up my mind that way so…Here’s one option all laid out.Here’s another. Working against this one was the fact that this was what I used the last time too!This one just screamed no to me. Not a solid here. At least, not this one.And here is the finished first two rounds. I will be chauffeuring my DH to church tonight, so you can picture me working on the next round or two and watching Criminal Minds on Netflix.
Sunday I had planned to baste Scrap-in-a-Box right after my DH left for the evening service. Unfortunately, as the day wore on, I realized I was coming down with a cold and just sat on the couch drinking liquids and playing iPad games. So that still needs to get done. I have also started playing with the idea of a scalloped border on the 2012 Designer Mystery BOM. I’ve never done one of those before. I may need to remind myself how to do that in Finishing Schools: Edges & Bindings, Mimi Dietrich. At least I think that is where I saw it. I may have to look at some of my other classes too. And online tutorials and…
I hope to get a lot more done this week – but first I have to feel better.
