I Couldn’t Wait …
… to show you all this:Not only is the top finished, but it’s sandwiched with the batting and the backing and is ready to quilt! Woo hoo! I think we all know what I’ll be doing today!
But that’s not all I did yesterday. I also cut out at least 225 tumblers for retreat. Other than the neutral, all the fabric came from my stash. I cut mostly by colors, since that’s the way I pulled the fabrics … so I will want to take a little time before I leave for retreat to mix the tumblers so I’ll have the colors evenly distributed. I have no idea how big I want my quilt to finish … right now, I’m guessing that I have enough for a small wall hanging – 37.5”x37.5”. I’m thinking that I’d like to make it a little bigger, so I left my Accuquilt Go out so I can cut more fabrics. We’ll see whether I get the tumbler top completed at retreat since I also have my signature blocks, my pineapple blocks, and my Martha Washington’s Flower Garden to work on.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
