I have called mom a million times today checking on her. I'm sure I am driving her crazy but I just worry about her and worry that she may have gone back to work too soon.
I ironed all of my strip sets for my Pink Bargello that I have been making.
They I had to sew them all into "Tubes" and as you can see here, Donkey wanted to help me! :)
Then he finally tired out! :)
I now have them all sewn into "tubes" and I will spend the evening cutting them into strips again and they will be ready to be sewn into blocks. As I said before this quilt is for my sister, Chantal. She is coming out to my house tonight to spend the night! She doesn't quilt....yet but I will cut them up while she is here. She doesn't know that this quilt is for her but she'll never realize that it is until I tell her. She is so used to seeing me work on quilts that she will not think anything about it. But I am excited about spending some good "sissy time" with her too.
I have been sorting more scraps too! I think I will start making some of them into these little "primitive baskets" they are only 6 inch block so the actual basket is very small. Again this is one that I am in no big hurry finishing, just work on it as I have the scraps just like my 1/2 square triangles.
And after I get my "Pink Bargello" finished my friend Lisa and I plan on making this beautiful quilt! I have wanted to make it for a few years now. It is called "Burgoyne Surrounded" This is the photo of the antique quilt in the book. If you look real close you will see a mistake in the second block of the second row. Anyway, I have some Navy and cream poka dot fabric that I want to use for it and I guess the cream in the quilt, I will just use muslin. I have quiet a bit of muslin and that will save me from having to by any.
Well, it is about time for Chantal to come so I will leave you with another photo of Donkey....
I promise he has a head in there somewhere! :)
