Do I use up some string pieced blocks to make a border for my relaxing robin?
some crazy willy nilly sewn pieces?
can I "cheat" with this cheater???? nope already made into a
placemat for the kitties........ good thing huh?
but then they will match my quilt
ut oh........found this old UFO.......was making a quilt for a boy or man
and used up tons of novelty squares in this
but I think it stopped because I ran out of the blue
and didnt know what to do next
maybe just quilt er up as a lap size and get er done???
would be nice for a lap quilt for the nursing home. not too huge or too heavy
PROBLEM: no more blue fabric for border; no ideas for border
SOLUTION: tie or quilt up as is for a laptop size to donate to nursing home
and also found this one. I used to work in a curtain factory office and when the place closed,
because they knew I was a sewer, I was offered some fabrics and swatch books.
these are 100% cotton but denim weight
so I just made squares and sewed willy nilly until I got a nice big quilt
I just need to tie or quilt it up
my sewing niece likes it. (it IS nice and warm for sure)
maybe in keeping with the old fashioned theme I can tie each square and do minimal quilting to hold it
or some machine tacking? it is big and heavy so that has been the issue with finishing this one too
PROBLEM: too big and too heavy to figure out how to finish
SOLUTION: tie or machine tack
Here is a picture of another toile I had previously thought of using
for my dresdans
now where is that piece? it may come in handy for future
rows on relaxing robin
Dunkin seems to like this colorway
Phoebe is bored by the whole thing and the whole process. it is raining and dreary and she is napping soundly nice and warm and snuggly
Dunkin: I will pretend to sleep too
Mom: I see your eyes are still open little boy
Dunkin: the better to see you with Mom
Mom: I know Dunkin, you may miss out on seeing me
pet Phoebe instead of YOU or something like that
and if I gave HER treats, BOY would I be in TROUBLE!!!!
