I did have to stop a little early this afternoon because the winds were picking up and the sky was getting quite dark. Here in the Land of the Lightning, I unplug all expensive equipment when the thunderstorms threaten.
But I was able to finish quilting and putting the binding on this one that I called my take on Modern. Without having any Chinese coin strips or crumb blocks, I had just used stripes. It has a cheerful big star quilting motif where the stars have eyes and a smile. Good for any age kid! Into the box it goes …
Oh, and I did get up last night to see if the Blood Moon was spectacular. In my area, the eclipse didn’t begin until about 2 am so it hadn’t turned red when I caught this image at about 2:20. I went out again about 30 minutes later and it was turning reddish, but wispy clouds were coming in so I didn’t get a worthwhile shot of it. This pic was enough to prove I was out there!
So as soon as this next rain band moves thru, I’ll go back upstairs to quilt. I still have three more in the basket to quilt, then it’s back to working on those UFOs … they abound!
These are the ones already in the box that I already told my group about:
|Sportin' Ties (with soccer balls)|
|Solar System Quilting|
|More lotto block winnings|
|Geometric Triangle Quilting|
I can't believe there are four in the box already ... Feels good to get another box almost ready to mail in a timely manner for a change!
