A Quickie Update
I was able to get a good bit of quilting done in the last couple of days. I’ve only got a couple more blocks to quilt before I can start on the borders. It’s been a little while since I shared a photo of my progress, so without further ado:
The bottom picture is a full shot (mostly) of the back … but the color is off … the middle photo gives a more accurate (but not perfect … it’s a darker blue/navy Moda Marbles). The borders look all wavy on the picture of the front ... but only because I didn't take the time to smooth them out when I took the picture ... I guess I was too anxious to get back to quilting. ha! I’m quilting down the middle of each log. Usually I use 1.5” (finished) logs, but in order to give this quilt a little more of a modern feel, I chose to make these logs 2” (finished). I much prefer the 1.5” logs.
The nearby small city has a parade on Halloween … it’s quite a draw, so we were expecting some trick or treaters last night. We got none, so I’m hoping that we’ll get some tonight … in spite of the parade and the cold temperatures. At least I thought to purchase candy that I don’t really care for all that much.
I did get a photo of the Ts all decked out.
The cold front appears to be moving in … we’ve already reached the forecast high and temps are dropping, it’s overcast, and the wind has really picked up … just looking outside makes me cold. Brrrrrr
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
