Design floor Monday....

I got a lot done in the sewing room yesterday.... just not exactly what I had planned.
The weather did turn nice and it hit 79 and was sunny. Sadly... we did not go kayaking. Maybe next week - I did scout out a few places to go.

I did get my blue and cream log cabin pressed, backing pressed and it is all pinned for quilting. That is currently 87x87 - so a huge quilt. I have thoughts of doing feather quilting in the cream area's but since it is just me and my little domestic sewing machine I think the swirls with either flowers or hearts or loops all over will win out this time. I hope to make some progress on that one through the week as time allows.

After that was pinned - I moved onto a couple of tiny Tuesday blocks for tomorrow's post. Then it was time to finish framing the hugs and kisses blocks. I have them all framed and just need to trim them and then decide where they all go and sew them together. I'm still working on the peel border but hope to have them all finished by the end of the month. I love how it is coming out so far. The orange peel pattern is from the book 'Remembering Adelia' but I decided to make the X and O's for the layout. It was not quite big enough for me - so I framed them and now each block is 10 inches.

  4. Nothing like hugs and kisses in February! The framing looks great and so different from the one in Remembering Adelia.
