First I had to do a test block for this scrappy pinwheel quilt sketched out, determining what size to cut the squares for the alternate half-square triangle setting blocks. They will finish at 7" so I determined after two test blocks that 8" cut squares will give me just enough extra to sliver trim after sewing the HSTs, without wasting my fabric. 24 squares cut and checked off the list.
I also cut and pieced the flannel backing for the Jewel Box quilt that must be basted and quilted ASAP, since I'm giving it to my boss before we close next week. Hoping to get that pinned tonight, though I may have to call in reinforcements...Mom?
Following that, playtime with miniatures. I cut down the first border of this mini to finish at 3/4" and then added the two outer borders. I'll back this with another blue print and bring it to the front for the binding finish. For quilting, wouldn't little thread ties be fun? Hmm, hmm, pondering. Next, I decided on binding only for the X's and O's quilt, then cut and constructed that from the two pink fat quarters selected. Last task of the night was altering sleeves on DD Elaine's sweater, but that is too boring to show. Feeling better about that QADD working for me on this occasion! Do you have it too?
