of belonging to a great quilt guild is the free therapy you receive! Who knew?!!!
Thanks girls for listening to me
gripe, complain, vent talk (and talk and talk and talk) ;-)
During all my talking, I chain pieced 90 pairs of blocks for my Quilt #2.
I thought with that pile of blocks there would be more than enough for a lap size quilt, but 42 more blocks are needed. Obviously, the layout will change once those blocks are complete. I just wanted to get an idea of the size.
From the extra solids I ordered, yesterday I finally cut the additional 18 4x6 inch blocks needed for Quilt #1. The rug doesn't make the best backdrop for these solids, but my design wall was confiscated for quilt batting ;-) It has since been replaced thanks to a 50% off coupon to JoAnns.
Look what I found when going through my Christmas stuff: my first (and only) hand pieced pillow. I had forgotten all about the time I took a "hand quilting" class at JoAnn's. This was years before my first quilt class at the LQS. I still think I have some of those fabrics in my stash!
Have an amazing day!!!! I'm off to finish piecing Quilt #1 before my daughter's orchestra concert.
