A bit late posting today. It was an early start - up at 6AM to get to the fairgrounds for 7:30 to prep the 3 chickens there for judging. They got put into the Commercial class since they are laying. We found out later.... most don't go and do anything but... it was our first time and she wanted to check on her girls! We also were able to to listen to the judge and he was telling us about how he judges them and showed Em the vents (yellow if just beginning laying and pale as they lay more!) and had her feel the 2 different bones they judge. He did say he liked the look of DC =). She is bigger since she isn't really laying yet.
I did get some sewing/prep time in today in yellow. I prepped enough hexagons to get me through the 25th of this month. I'll need to prep 3 more tomorrow to finish out the month.
Then I decided to make some extra blocks into a placemat! I just did some easy straight line quilting on this and hand stitched down the binding this afternoon. These were the edges leftover from Sally's graduation quilt sewn into a pinwheel kind of block.
I also machine stitched this runner of extra blocks today and added a blue binding. I'll finish hand stitching that down tonight after game night. I hear it is either Clue or Parcheesi. One side of extra yellow strips from that graduation quilt.
The other side was turned into four patches then 16 patch blocks - 5 of them. I think this will probably be the display side... until it gets dirty then I'll flip it over!
I had to machine quilt with the inspector Peanut in this position. The. whole. time.!
I did make these two yellow blocks on Thursday.
I also have more binding to stitch down on the Stashbuster 2020 quilt I made last year with the RSC.
