I've be working (frantically, it seems) on the commissioned quilt that will be a gift.
I had the machine cleaned, bobbins filled and a new blade in the rotary cutter when this arrived in my mail box:
Quarter-yard cuts of 'Irish',
the top white dot for setting fabric,
and the bottom green, little stripe for backing.
I ordered this green stash from Fabric Shack of Waynesville, Ohio,
which is a couple of hours drive from me.
I ordered after their closing on Wednesday
and I had it on my cutting mat on FRIDAY by noon!
And, they only charged half of the shipping amount!!!
So, thanks to the wonderful customer service from Fabric Shack,
I was able to start almost immediately!
I cut 2 1/2 by 10 1/2 inch strips from each fabric,
and sewed them into fours THAT DAY:
Trimmed, then sub-cut into strips and ready to make 16-patch blocks!:
By Saturday afternoon, all 32 of the 16-patch blocks
and the start of the X-blocks made:So I feel like it's a great start!
Yesterday afternoon, we did the family tree-trek:
It was a great day - partly sunny and about 45 degrees.
The little guys are here today, playing while mommy and daddy are shopping.
So no sewing on the gift-y quilt or decorating the tree, but we sure are having fun!!
And pedal back to the metal tonight.
Hope your Monday is wonderful, too!
