Whining will commence in three, two, one...
By the way, I saw an announcement from McKenna Ryan on her Facebook page that she's going to stop publishing her applique templates on both sides of the sheet, which, as you know, frosted my nostrils pretty badly. Unfortunately, I still have a whole new quilt to make when this one is done still printed in the old way...not to mention a few little ones I purchased while at her showroom in downtown Portland. I might forgive her...grudgingly.
Yesterday, I was pretty anxious to finish up the little "Endless Pawsibilities" quilt for Another Little Quilt Swap. So, first thing before showering or even brushing my teeth (TMI?), I sandwiched, quilted, and bound it. Who says I can't delay gratification? So here's the front:
I just used a straight line grid. Here's how it looks on the back.
That wasn't on my to-do list for April, but I'm glad to have it finished, just the same. I might include it on my May list so I can cross it off right away. Would I do that? Yes, yes, I would.
As for my regular to-do's for April, I wanted to make the next block for the Chicken Buffet quilt. The next one is the "Fried Chicken". Honestly, these blocks are so much fun.
So, first I fused all the appliques.
Then I did the top-stitching.
My friend Sharon says I can keep using these blocks for my Let's Book It project, and so...
Let's Book It is ready for April's linky party.
That's the third of 12 blocks. These are the ones I have so far.
Next time I work on this, I'll be doing Chicken Caesar. Aren't these a hoot?
It rained all day yesterday with the exception of a couple of hours in the afternoon. The forecast is for some nicer weather today, although still a little chilly. The weekend is forecast to be mah-velous. I think I'll stick with sewing for today, and get out for a couple of walks this weekend.
What're you up to today?
