Out Of My Box Again

I have decided that I am naming this quilt Out Of The Box. Thank fully my customers understood my delay with running to Cali to see my dad. They gave me an extension. Evidently their house is not done anyways so it was good timing. So I am back to work on the strips and curves. While I want to go on record saying that I think the designer is brilliant I have to admit that its a challenging quilt for me. I cant even tell you why as I am enjoying the process. I really REALLY have to stop and think though! Row 2 out of 5 is done, and I am going to tell you that I am VERY greatful that I get to applique circles stragetically over seams that dont meet up.Ü

I did finish the bargello. Its going to be quilted this week! So no pictures until I atleast get it loaded. The dumb thing turned into a king size!! I didnt plan that but to have it at the right size would of meant no borders. I cant seem to do a no border quilt.

For fun I am also throwing together this little kit from Moda. I am going to have to redesign it though as it leaves fabric not used. One of my biggest pet peeves is having to much fabric left over that will only fit into that particular project.


This week is going to be a busy one. We have company showing up on Wed. YAY! we have a dinner party with about 50 people on friday, and I have to get the bargello quilted. That I am hand carrying to Arkansas at the end of the month. I am going to meet oldest daughters boyfriends parents.Yowzer that is a mouthful isnt it! I will need ALL the good wishes you can imagine for this meeting. More on that later.Ü
