Quilting is slow when you do applique. But, I AM enjoying it! I finished Block #3 of BTCT. I redrew the "fingers" at the base of the pineapples. Mine have five, the original quilt had seven.
Block #4 is almost done, and I've started #5. A couple more Two Lips blocks done. Henrietta is sending me some pastel pieces for more Two Lips blocks because my stash has very little pastel fabric.
I need to work on some UFO's. Found a pile of OLD log cabin blocks I want to lay out and pick a setting. There is a large pile of 9 patch blocks. Q is for Quilter Martha added snowball blocks and the 9 patches look like stars. The Farmer's Daughter block uses 9 patches as a center and adds the star "points". I love my 9 patches and either of these two settings would work. I have a soft brown for the points, my 9 patches are scrappy and one fabric/color for points would help pull them together. Finished and done is better than a perfectly planned UFO. This should be my mantra!
I REALLY wanted to start a new project I saw. I printed the pattern out and even had the color picked. I've been thinking--do I enjoy starting projects, or do I just enjoy cutting them out? Hmmmm........
PS--the weather is much warmer at the moment--47F--and bright sunshine.
