It certainly wasn't a dramatic or overly exciting weekend, but I did spend it doing what I love to do, so I am counting it as a good weekend.
Friday night, I did some hand quilting on T#2's doll quilt while watching All About Eve (I can't believe I'd never seen it in its entirety ... I love those old B&W classics).
Saturday, I made some decent progress on the star blocks that form the center of the log cabin blocks of T#4's big girl quilt. I have 1/3 of the star blocks sewn together, and I've got another 1/3 strips ready to sew into star blocks. Piecing quilts is my least favorite part of quilting, and this one seems to be especially tedious. And triangles give me fits. I thought I would have better success with a specialty ruler, a quarter-inch foot on my sewing machine, and taking my time to sew carefully ... but my triangle blocks still aren't as precise as I would like.
Sunday I attended church, did a little shopping on my way home, organized/decluttered the bookcase in the basement, and watched some football/had dinner with our friends next door.
Like I said, it wasn't a very exciting weekend ... but it was still a good one.
