Suppose you want to make a quilt. Step 1 is likely to be choosing a pattern (or designing one:). In my case here, we chose a book block pattern and asked for blocks to be made.
Once you have an assortment of blocks/designs, you decide how to set them together into a surface arrangement (quilt top). I chose sashing each block with separate border prints.
Yesterday and today I finished sewing these sashing borders on the 30 blocks made by guild members. Here are the last ten books - again, this group of makers really worked hard on these cool books!
I am eager to set these blocks together into a top. I even think I have worked out a plan for how to do that. :)
Other than sewing, I've spent the last two days mostly reading and also doing some cleaning. I did take a trip out to Walgreens earlier today to pick up two prescriptions and buy some soap (going through that faster than usual:). Also got some good chocolate - a life necessity in my humble opinion. :)
The weather was sunny most of yesterday and today, with scattered clouds and breezes. Yesterday was a bit cool but today I went out with short sleeves. I think the temperature was in the mid70s today. Nice, anyway.
