There are more than 40 sections of varying sizes and orientations to be completed. Most are small. I'll do them a few at a time in order to avoid slitting my throat.
For today, I started with the three top flower sections. Each one took about half an hour to complete.
The other thing I wanted to accomplish was to make a quilt back for the Baby Birds baby quilt.
There was plenty of fabric left to piece together a back. I had plenty of length, but not enough width, and so I used two of the fabrics and sewed strips together. I had more help with this than you can possibly imagine.
Here, Mommy. (Sadie calls me Mommy.) I'll hold the fabric while you measure.
When I was finished, it looked like this. Nothing fancy. Try to ignore the black smudge created by my little cat. She was giving it the snuggle test.
Finally, I moved along with Lesson 5 of the free motion quilting sampler. Lesson 5 is McTavishing, and while I know about McTavishing, I've never actually tried it. This is my first practice piece.
I'm told it is supposed to "convey motion" and that my piece does that. Still, I'd like to practice this a little more before committing it to my sampler.
So a pretty good day of sewing. This morning I'm walking with Sue. It rained yesterday afternoon, but we're promised decent weather for our walk today. As you know, Sue and I lead charmed lives where rain is concerned. Hopefully, our luck will hold for another day.
