The last DWM of March is here already. On my design floor is the same thing all month--my UFO Challenge pick #5, Metro Twist. All the block piecing was completed a couple of days ago, and today I sewed all the rows together. There was a lot of seam matching and curved edges to pair up. It is not perfect, but looks just fine. I then set about adding more of the Kona Silver to make the Twist blocks float and ran into this:
Dye lot difference that was too noticeable to remain--naturally I didn't notice until after I'd added two sides (cough). Luckily I found the remainder of yardage from the lighter batch in the Solids bin.
I feel like I sewed all day to get to this point--which I practically did--but wanted to have the top and back all ready to spray baste after work tomorrow. I'm thinking simple channel quilting in gray thread. I'll use more of the Kona Silver for the binding to keep the front minimal and modern looking. See more Design Walls on Judy's Patchwork Times.
My week is pretty light except for a Chinese ballet show outing with my mom, sister, daughter and niece one night, and a funeral on Friday. It is sad when your parents' friends of 40-50 years begin to go. We just attended another funeral last Friday for a dear family friend. Meanwhile, my 98 year old mother in law is getting some hospice assistance, which should give her more attention and hopefully prevent any more ER visits from falls. She's still quite mobile and talkative, but things do happen to old people in Memory Care.
