Time off is time to get things done

March 29, 2021

As some of the next couple of weeks is nominally holiday I have been busy this weekend. I am trying to clear some old projects. When I say old, I think they were all started over 15 years ago. For my class project I have a dug out a star quilt. I think it was supposed to be 12 blocks although I can only identify 11 at them moment. They are big blocks and the cutting is not as good as I can manage now, but it would be nice to have it done if not perfect. This weekend I dug out 2 projects, one is a mystery quilt in purples which is looking good, and a kit from fabrics I clearly won. To say they aren’t my colours would be an understatement. However it is currently taking up space, and it could be a reasonable dog quilt. The plan is to work on it in small doses as it really isn’t much fun. I have 3 of the 6 blocks done. The other 3 are cut (badly) and ready to sew. They are about 15″ blocks when done so with a little sashing and a border (do I have any fabrics this sludgy) I will have enough to be a floor quilt for the animals. I also hope these tops might become test pieces at some point in the not too distant future for another longarm, but that depends on the government.

This week I want to get some customer quilting done and also keep moving the purple quilt along. I think it needs about 15 hours work to get the top together and it is pretty easy work at that. If i intersperse it with the longarming it should be done in no time more or less.
