Saturday.... Yeah!

Its the weekend at last. This has been a very tough week between Arctic cold weather and my car problems. But its early Saturday morning, I've already taken the dog out (okay, I let the dog out and waited by the door until she was ready to come back in), DD is still asleep (and probably will be for 2 more hours), and its finally getting light out. Looks like we got more snow last night, so later on I'll have to go out and snowblow, again.

Here's a pic I took of a proposed layout of the bento box quilt I started. I think I'll make 3 more "boxes" today and have a 9 block quilt. I laid this out in the dark (I don't have good light in my living room) the other night, so I'll take another look at it in the full daylight hours.
My border fabric for my flagstone quilt finally came in so I'll be adding the borders to that this weekend, too. I want to get that all done today so I can take it to church tomorrow to layout and pin baste the layers. I don't have a big table at home, so unless its small enough to tape to my glass coffee table, I take my quilts to church where they have big tables set up in the classrooms. And after nearly everyone is gone, I pin baste my quilt. Usually doesn't take more than about 30-40 minutes. Of course, DD is usually impatient all that time, but I'll have her bring a book to read while I'm doing that.
Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend and keeping warm.

  1. great idea to pin baste on a table if you can. Normally I have to tape to the living room floor - sometimes I pin baste and some times I thread baste depends on the quilt, mainly though that is just for small quilts that I do in my hoop - otherwise I use my 3 roller frame.
