Still working on cleaning up the store space so we can close out everything. Heavy duty physical labor. :)
Yesterday I managed to test out a foundation pattern I cobbled up to make a feather block similar to the one Anna Marie Horner popularized in a free tutorial (she does it by more traditional piecing methods).
The block shown above (worked up in colors of scraps I happened to have on hand:) is about 6" wide and 20" long. I volunteered to orchestrate the construction of a quilt for the Baltimore Modern Guild's quilt bingo this coming September and I have decided to make a Feather Quilt for this effort. Quite a number of members have volunteered to come to a sew-in this Sunday to make feathers. :) We will be working with a white background - and I think the quilt will be gorgeous. :)
Yesterday I saw my orthopedist - he XRayed my right knee (which, until recently, was not giving me much pain compared to the left one) and said they both are equally worn out. :P I have agreed to surgery on May 13th (at Kernan Institute) on the left knee .... will do the right one in early to mid Fall, once the left one is healed. I guess this will be the year of Repair (should be my focus word, eh?:).
I expect to spend most of tomorrow and Saturday at my shop, shifting 'stuff' and breathing cotton fluff dust. :P
