It's a sweatshop here in Montpelier, VA this weekend. We are making all kinds of progress on our projects this weekend.
I did several hours of cross-hatching Friday and I have MANY more hours to go. This quilt is going to take a long time but I don't care because I love how it's turning out and I have a great audiobook to listen too while quilting.
I can't cross-hatch for hours on end so I took a periodic break to get all of these blocks together and am playing with layouts in the living room floor. This is going to be a great Veteran's quilt. Yesterday I didn't work on either project, instead I worked on my Grandmother's Choice blocks and you will see those Saturday.
Mom has been filling up the design wall with her star blocks. She will easily get all of these done before she leaves Tuesday.
Mom's guild makes quilts for boy's and girl's homes near Farmville, VA. Each time she visits I try to make her a kit using the Accuquilt 3 1/2" tumbler. It takes almost 700 tumblers for a quilt. We decided on this bright palette for her next quilt. I think this will be a great teenager quilt and anything we can do to empty some of my stash is always a good thing!
Today we are taking a break from sewing to go to a quilt exhibit in Williamsburg and to visit my baby brother and his family in Newport News.
It's all good around here! Next week we will return to the regularly schedule palette project posts.
