Progress is being made, for the moment, on piecing scrappy baskets for this as yet unnamed bed-size quilt. As of tonight, a grand total of eleven have been completed. Here are the baskets made since my post last week:
Anyway, here are a couple of my favorites from the current batch, a few lopped off points notwithstanding. I subscribe to the galloping pony test, and my pony is fast out of the gate and never looks back, lol!
Tomorrow my quilting space will need to be packed up and the rolling carts containing rotary cutters and other sharp objects removed to our bedroom. My son and DIL and the three youngest grands will be here for the long weekend, and the two oldest (ages 6 and 4) will be sleeping in the quilting room. The toddler will sleep in the guest room with his parents, but in his waking hours he's faster than a speeding bullet - always a challenge to toddler-proof a house! It's going to be a fun weekend of the very best kind, and hopefully our seemingly never-ending rainy spell will be over with the new month. Hoping the raging creek behind the house recedes enough from today's thunderstorms that the grandkids can do some proper fossil-hunting, wading, make lizard traps and other fun stuff. After the grandkids depart my daughter, her boyfriend and their two rambunctious dogs will descend upon us for a couple days, so it will be awhile before these fun little blocks can be pulled out again.
Wishing you all a safe and happy 4th of July with friends and loved ones - the best kind of celebration!
