Feast ...

... or Famine

Uber activity from a week ago did not carry over to the past week, unfortunately.

I sewed ONE seam, one lousy seam ...

Athena Orange
But that one seam gave me a finish for the week!  Athena Orange (erroneously identified as Athena Blue last week) is done.  No more Greek key blocks left!  When all those blocks I made early in the year did not play well together, I put together three small quilts, instead.

I fibbed a little bit ... I stitched a few more of the spire units for my New York Beauty blocks.

Design Wall

Talk about a diverse design wall!  I spent all day yesterday and part of this morning cutting the remaining units for the NYB blocks.  I cut far more than needed because I want flexibility to chose pleasing combinations that show off the batiks.  This will be my major project at next week's retreat, after I get the binding sewn onto Black and Tan Pineapple and Cathedral Stars.

The rest of this week will be devoted to getting the house ready for grandkids who are coming for a short visit this weekend.
