Hi there! How as Monday? I think it went pretty well here. It was a humid weird overcast day.. the kind that make you feel a bit sluggish. I was hoping for a little rain, but no luck.
I did get some sewing in, I have all my This Diamond Ring quilt blocks sewn in rows and the sashing is sewn, all I need to do is put them together. I had hoped to get them done in time to take them to Diana, my quilter, this morning, but I can drop it off when I pick up the quilt next week.
When I finished the rows and sashing and I knew I couldn't get it done I figured I'd just stop there and treat myself to fusing a Tulip Garden Block. I still love the shape of that tulip and I'm kind of considering getting a custom die from Accuquilt. I think a large and small tulip and some leaves would be fun to have. I can think of a lot of fun projects using them, so it could be worth it. Something to think about.
Anyway, I still love the block. I think I'll work on fusing them all then start with the blanket stitching. It will go fast, just three colors of thread, red, green and pink. How do you approach a project like this? I usually do all of one color, then switch to the next. Just take my time, turn on the tv and go! It's so relaxing to me.
Ok I guess I should get a start on the day. Hope the week is going well for you! xo
