My goodness, it's Monday already. It's hard to believe a week has passed by with so little quilty work done. The tomatoes are ripening in the garden faster than they can be preserved. So that's taking up all the quilting time. And then there was the bright idea to make homemade pizza sauce instead of the usual easy canned tomatoes. After about 10 hours of simmering tomatoes and herbs, 2 quarts of sauce! Pardon me for being a little cynical but the bragging rights aren't worth the effort. Oh my almost vegetarian son and his vegetarian girlfriend were impressed Saturday night when I made homemade vegetarian pizza with cauliflower crust. Of course I sent them home with a grocery bag full of fresh tomatoes( Less for me to preserve) and gave them a jar of sauce.
Well here's what been accomplished in the studio this week. Not much! These Periwinkle/Hummingbird blocks finally put on the design wall. Maybe by next Monday they'll be a completed top.
182 blocks = 65 x 70 quilt. Sometimes I wonder what was I thinking!
The Scrappy Baskets quilt is almost done. (block tutorial here) 4 more blocks to quilt, I'm hoping for a Friday finish. Do you think Red gingham binding would be too much? Can you have to much gingham? Not in my world! While quilting this I thought about how this basket block would look so cute with strawberries instead of flowers...a little hand embroidery for the strawberry vines....I may need to make a wall hanging from this pattern.
Linking up with Judy@patchworktimes for design wall Monday.
