Relaxing weekend


This weekend has really been relaxing.  I’ve been quilting all day long on my basket quilt.  Knowing I will not be able to finish the whole quilt before next weekend.  But my goal is to have all the baskets done by thursday night. 27 baskets left to quilt.  Hope I manage it because I just have the evnings to quilt.


Did not quilt all day long yesterday.  Had to do something else because my arm startet to hurt.  So I went into my sewingroom and picked a box.


It is the This Goes With That (TGWT) design Sue Daley.  I have made 8 hexagons so far, but I have not touched the box for a long time.  I am in need of a easy “on-the-go” sewing next weekend and I thought this would be perfect. 


I love Sue Daleys patterns because they always comes with papers and templates.  And in this package it is a lot of templates.


The harderst part is to find fabrics.  Making this quilt in red and white too, so I am picking the colours from my basketquilt which I am very pleased with.


Five hexagon blocks ready to be made.

Saying for today:

I am always so impressed with how much you accomplish and you have a full time job! Your basket quilt is going to be stunning when you are finished. Don't you love Sue Daley?

I agree, finding the fabrics is the hardest. I also love Sue's patterns and have one of hers ready to seek fabrics for . Maybe I should get it out and start it soon. I love the fabrics you have chosen.

Goodness, you are so good about getting things done. I often come home and collapse! But I did order a bunch of blues, that basket quilt will not leave me in peace! Have a great week May Britt.
