I’m getting very close to being finished making the Memories of Smudge blocks.
The sixth-last one.
The fifth-last one.
And the fourth-last one done.
The third-last is already three-quarters finished and, as there are only two more left to stitch, I have high hopes of finishing them tonight.
Thanks to a comment from yesterday, I am now on the hunt for a cheap vinyl tablecloth with a flannel backing. That will serve as a temporary design wall just fine. We’re going to head to the dollar stores today and see if we can find one. Then the fun begins as I play with the blocks, trying to make sure the same fabric doesn’t end up beside itself. That will, I think, take a while to sort out and will probably involve a lot of photos as I find I see things on the computer screen in a photo that I don’t necessarily notice when staring at the blocks themselves.
Once the last of the Memories of Smudge blocks are done I think I’ll go back to working on the Stormy Seas blocks. They were second in the poll and that is a quilt top I’d love to get together sooner than later.
That said, I’m starting to plan a Memories of Lester and Max quilt. Lester was a red tabby Maine Coon and Max a cream tabby Maine Coon, so I think I’m going to make an orange and cream/white quilt in memory of them. I’m going to start looking for an orange fabric for this. Looks like it will be another two-colour quilt, but this time orange and cream/white. I haven’t quite settled on a design, although I have a few ideas. Think I’ll play with some design ideas in EQ and see if I can settle on a design.
Baxter is in the Baxter Blimp so he can watch and report on the baseball games.
It’s pretty tiring work. He has to rest up in between games.
