Not Enough Days In This Month

Not enough sewing going on the last couple of days. Yesterday was a post surgery follow -up with the eye doctor for Tom, followed by some grocery shopping . Later in the afternoon I had to bake some rolls for a funeral luncheon at our church this morning.

I had hoped to have one more finish for February, but simply ran out of days. In between other things I pieced the center of the One block Wonder quilt yesterday and added the borders today. I think I have fabric that will work for backing so hoping to get it quilted in the next day or two.

I didn't have enough fabric left to miter the outer border so have to do something creative to deal with the outer stripe. I think I know what I'm going to do.

I'm beginning to wonder..if I make enough of these quilts that I claim are "definitely not a Mary quilt" ...or "outside the box for me"...does that mean my style has changed and what I think of as a "Mary quilt" isn't anymore?????????

One more Dutch Treat block done Thursday evening. It's called "Sprites".

We went from 73ยบ on Thursday to snow last night and today. My sinuses are screaming "foul"! The good news is we are supposed to be back to the 70's by next Thursday.

Wow, this quilt is an wonder !
I hope you will make more of this ! It's addictive !
I love the narrow solid border that separate the blocks from borders !

I have to admit it didn't look like it could be anything much when you showed the fabric in the beginning or the first blocks but WOW. That's amazing.

Is it not a sign that you are growing as a quilter that you are making "new" quilts?
