Last week was one of those where I spent more time in the car than I did in the sewing room. We had closed out the previous week with another gorgeous sunset on Saturday.
It was actually more like the pink reflected in the water.
I accompanied Alex back to Nashville for the CT scan on Tuesday and took advantage of the mileage to pick up the second Christmas quilt at the LAQ. I managed to get the binding on and turned in record time.
Yes, same rainbow stripe on two quilts; they both will go into the washer and dryer later today. Woohoo, two gifts off my list!
I tried to get a bit of time in the studio each day and my eclectic design wall shows some of the results.
I finished two more monster blocks. That colorful hexie piece bottom right is one I started on one of our earliest quilt cruises, circa 2011. It's my first attempt at English Paper Piecing (on a very large scale). I think the teacher was Chris Porter. I pulled it out this week because I want to finish several small hand projects next year. The HSTs came from a box labeled "Quilt With No Name" -- one of those things I began to use up some bright fabrics quite a few years ago. Time to do something with them.
The first row has been trimmed to 4-1/2" and assembled. With a colorful border it will make a nice baby quilt and the remaining background fabric can go on the shelf. Like I said, it was a slow week.
In the Kitchen - We had a quiet Thanksgiving, just the two of us with a small boneless turkey breast. On Friday I made a "refrigerator stew" to use up dribs and drabs of leftovers from earlier in the week.
