What I’m Working On

Well the Double Wedding Ring for my son and his soon to be wife is taking up most of my time right now.

DoubleWeddingRing
I got the one block done last week and it was enough for me to feel confident that I can sew it.  That meant this week I needed to do some more cutting and sewing.  I have all 127 arcs for one of the sides of the mellon sewn.  Now this week I plan to tackle the other side of the arcs.  They are mirror images so a couple times I have had to stop and resort.  It’s all very do-able but takes quite a bit of organization.

Yesterday Kelli was home and did a lot of cutting out of the pieces.  That helped a lot!!  We still need to cut the blue portion of the blocks.

Little by little we will plug away at it.  Our daughter Kayla called and she is planning to come a couple days and help too.

Country Threads pulled their UFO number on Saturday and it’s #4.  That’s an easy one for me.  It’s a star quilt.  The top is already finished.  The backing is already pieced.  All I need to do is quilt and bind it.  The weather is calling for more rain so the next rainy day, I am going to load it on the frame and start quilting.

    It’s going to be beautiful. I bought the templates quite a while ago but haven’t worked up the courage to try it yet. Looking forward to seeing yours finished. :)

    My favorite quilt pattern, but I am afraid to tackle it. Seeing yours it look a lot easier then I thought it would be. I just love following you. Thanks so much for letting us into your family and quilting life.
