This second one I bring out and look at periodically and try to decide what pattern and what other fabrics will showcase it.
Row one of the baby quilt is stitched together. There are 11 rows in total. My guesstimate is that it will take 3 evenings to add each set of two rows. So if the estimate is right and I really dedicate my stitching time to just the baby quilt, I should have the top finished within two and a half or three weeks. It took ages on Wednesday to lay the blocks and the sashing elements out and move them around a bit to get a nice balance. No design wall meant using the mattress cover, which actually works rather well and there’s an added benefit — I can shut the door and work on the layout without four-footed helpers.
On Monday when we were right downtown, Mr. Q.O. took a photo of the skyline. And this one of the CN Tower.
And while we were at it, this shot of the gargoyles on the Rogers Centre, also known as the Dome, where the Toronto Jays play baseball.
And the Air Canada Centre where both hockey and basketball are played. The orange cones in the photo? In Toronto, we have two seasons — winter and road construction season. As it’s not winter, there’s all sorts of construction and road repairs going on and wherever that’s happening the cones appear.
This is the first time we’ve been able to get a photo of the two kitties sitting together like this. I love the look on their faces.
