I'm happy to report that my dye-mentia gremlins left me yesterday. I washed out the dyed fabrics last night and started the 24 hour soak process and everything looks good! I hope you got a good laugh from my adventure. If that wasn't enough go back and read the comments. There are a couple of doozies there that make my day seem like a walk in the park. Add you own story too if you want. I'll pull the stories and either we'll have a vote on the best story or I'll draw a name. Regardless, someone's bad adventure will win them a prize!
Now, on to the weekend. I have the weekend to myself and hope to get a lot of quilting and sewing done. Willie is now up and running. It's been quite an ordeal and I'll post about it next week. I've gotten 2 veteran's quilts quilted and will load 2 more today to finish practicing with the new set up before I load my niece's graduation quilt. I dyed the backing for her quilt Wednesday so it will be ready by Monday.
You knew I could not go a week, much less 2 months without starting a new project. I starting 2 projects but, truthfully, neither is totally new. All of these half square triangles were cut about a year ago and I've been sewing them together as my leader and ender project. I only have a few pairs left to sew together so I think I'll get that done and start laying them out. I don't really even know how big of a quilt I can make with them. I may wind up cutting more if I like it.
I also have a big bin of scrap fabrics so I think I'll take some time this weekend to run them through the Accuquilt Go and see if I can start another leader/ender project.
I am also starting one "real" project but it isn't totally new. I've been designing another mystery quilt for Country School and for Alycia to run for QOV. Becky is testing the CSQ veteran's size instructions and I'm going to make the QOV one. It's a simple quilt so it shouldn't take long to get together. The mystery will run in June so you won't see it while I'm working on it. Hopefully I'll have a few other things to share in between.
But first I have to get ready for my CSQ meeting Tuesday. I'm doing the program on prayer flags so I need to get a few samples made and that's my first order of business today.
