One block needs to be rotated a quarter turn. I didn't see it as I was laying them out, but once I got the camera in position, it was very plain to see. Took the picture anyway.
Okay, class, here's where we are: You can see that the boisterous Cabins continue to demand attention. I was delighted to find exactly what I want for the outer border (once that wonky block gets adjusted and the rows all put together). The middle border will be pieced shirting strips. Did not have an inner border so that went on The Shopping List.
Jewel Box is all together except for borders. They went on the Shopping List.
At Bobbie's suggestion, Dull Jacob has been rechristened "Big Jake," and already he's feeling and acting more robust. And brilliant Julie thought he might like an acid green border so that went on the Shopping List.
The list also included backing for Like Water for Chocolate and Meadowbrook Pasture, both of which are going out to Branky this week for machine quilting.
With the Shopping List having extended itself thusly and the various projects behaving relatively well, I picked up Bonnie and off we went to the shop where I got all of those things for the Shopping List. I had U-pins (was it Nicole who was singing their praises recently? And does anyone know where to get them or what the brand name is?) on the list, too, as well as a Tri-Rec ruler that somebody was talking about. Got the ruler, but not the pins. Nor did I get my #8 Perle blue.
It had been a long time since I'd been up to that shop. I get most of my fabric at Sauder's or Hancocks of Paducah these days. I could see by the stack of fabrics that I dare not look around and do any impulse purchasing, so home we came.
The coming week could be very productive in terms of finishes!
