I took a nice walk this morning with my favorite veteran - my hubby. He served in the air force after high school.
The rains just hit.. so happy we got that walk in this morning as the winds are whipping now.
Time to head back into the sewing room and work on finishing the graduation quilt top, creating the backing and putting it on the boards so it can get pinned for quilting. I have no clue how I will quilt this one.... hope something comes to me in the next week.
I started off the day trimming those hearts I have been making this month down to a 6.5 inch block. I got one heart lined up in the center and drew the shape onto the top of my ruler with an erasable marker. I used that to line up the others to trim them down. I admit I stitched a little ahead and just have one left to make... and 4 of the little hearts.
While I was in there I pieced together strips of the hand quilting batting for the last Dresden plate block and pressed the backing fat quarter in blue. That is all pinned and ready for some hand work at some point today.
With all the red, white and blue quilts I have been seeing today... it is making me want to pull out my civil war diary quilt I did in those colors. The blocks are done and I think I was in process of putting it together. I am guessing block size variations had it sitting in a time out..... maybe if I get the graduation quilt pinned I might go search for those blocks and see where I was on them..... must stay focused and finish the graduation quilt first. I have 4 weeks to get that baby done!
