Hope everyone had a good weekend and Mother's Day. My boys and I spent the afternoon at my moms. I'd show you pictures but mom is a little bit camera shy(grumpy) so we don't do to many pictures at moms. It was a nice afternoon of planting the flowers we gave her and just sitting around eating pizza and shooting the breeze. I like dad's idea of pizza, so we moms aren't working on our special day! We tend to keep it simple as often as we can.
I've linked up with Judy over at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday. Hop on over and see what's going on in blog land, find some inspiration, or make a new blogging buddy!
Well, since the afternoon was spent at moms I didn't get much done around here . I'll show the little that was accomplished.
I've heard that many quilters with longarms won't make a quilt that has block bigger than the throat of their machine. The reason being that its to hard to quilt the block. I really don't see the difference between a block and a border so I don't follow that rule. However since I don't tack my starts and stops, they are buried, it does take a little extra time.
As much as I dislike SITD I think this quilt may end up needing it. I'll wait till the whole quilt is done to decide if I'll come back and SITD around the sashing and barn.
And still the last border needs to be put on the Ultimate Scrappy Flowers quilt.
If you haven't done so yet there's still time to enter my give away for this fat quarter bundle over here. You have until I get out of bed Wednesday morning to enter.
Until next time "Quilt out of Your Comfort Zone!"
I love pizza for Mothers Day too!! Your quilt is coming a long nicely!ReplyDelete
What a great idea about Mother's Day food. I slaved in the kitchen the day before but was still very tired Sunday. I'll have to remember your idea for next year.ReplyDelete
Loved seeing what you are doing in each block. Sometimes I wish I had a long-arm machine.
Your quilt and quilting looks great!ReplyDelete
