Corner Plates

The main body of the Summer Plates top is put together. Now I’m working on the border, which will include corner plates like this one. It’s going to be a small rectangular quilt, perfect for a teddy bear picnic.

The back took only a second to press.

As soon as Mr. Q.O. picks out some fabrics for sunflower blocks, I’ll post a photo of his choices. I’m really curious to see what he does choose.

When we were setting up to take the pictures, Baxter decided to investigate. Shortly after this was taken, he was trying to attack the block.

Farmer’s Delight Block #6

Another Farmer’s Delight block done.  I think I’ll try to work on different projects each evening this week.  I unearthed one hexagon UFO this weekend that I really do want to start working on a little bit more diligently so it will show up this week as well as some of the Harpsichord Quilt blocks, perhaps a Patchwork of the Crosses block and who knows what else.

Sunday was nowhere near as rainy and windy as they had predicted.  At least the rain held off for the St. Patrick’s Day parade.  That, to me, is always a sure sign of spring.

It was a grey day again, though, and both cats found good spots to curl up.  Smudge on the chair.
