Getting Ready to Finish Some Projects

One of the things I did last weekend was go through projects and identify ones that I want to get finished sooner rather than later. Then I got fabric ready to print.

The gold tone on tone is for the Harpsichord Quilt. The green, floral and white fabrics are for the Summer Picnic Dish quilt. The off white is for the Shabby Coat. The oriental shirting is for the scrappy star. Over the next few days I will get all the shapes printed and cut for each of those quilts.

There are a few things going on that need to be taken care of that are going to limit my time for blogging over the next week or so, but I will be popping in and out and hopefully visiting some blogs.

While we’ve had some absolutely gorgeous late September days, the evenings are cool and Baxter seems to be enjoying his kitty bed.

A Little More Shabby Coat

I know, I know. I said I was going to stick with the little Dresden Plates but I couldn’t resist adding a bit more to the shabby Joseph’s Coat. I’m so thrilled with this new Inklingo collection that I really can’t leave it alone! It’s really quick to stitch and presses oh, so easily. Even with all those seams intersecting in the centres, it lies flat as can be. This could grow into a lap quilt rather quickly.

Quilts that go together as you stitch them, rather than having blocks to join at the end, always attract me. When I finish stitching the blocks, it’s done.

The back:

We had crazy weather Wednesday night. First fog, then rain, then thunder and lightning and heavy rain. Sounds like there’s more of the same in store for us today.

Smudge was enjoying himself, stretched out on the windowsill. That’s a definite sign that summer is here.
