I'd like to welcome all the new members to our ring. I'm not going to list all of you because there's so many at once I'm afraid I'd leave someone out so this is a blanket welcome. :-) I haven't had much time to do more than glance at everyone's blogs the last several days but I do look forward to going back and maybe reading your archives and getting to know you all a bit better. I did run across one today that had me laughing. Shelina's current post shows a one block quilt made from the same design I'm currently working on. Go check it out. Her's is just beautiful.
This is what I've been working on during my long holiday weekend. I have all the pieces cut out for 12 blocks and managed to get 6 of them made. There will be one more block in each of the 6 colors. This is brighter in person than the photo shows. Some of the flower fabrics are light and kinday blendy with the background greens but I like the watercolory effect so it doesn't bother me. With the border I'm planning this will finish at 64" X 80" so will be big enough to wrap up in for naps. I should be able to finish the rest of the blocks this week in the evenings and maybe get the border done this weekend. It's going to be a pieced border so I'm not sure how long that is going to take me. That's going to be a change for me as I usually use plain borders and knowing me that just might be what this finally ends up with. We'll see how much trouble I have with the one I have planned.
Things have been REALLY quiet on the cat front today. All 5 of my babies have been laying around sleeping. That is until I laid blocks out on the floor to take a photo. That seemed to be a sigh for "Tornado Sam" to go into action. I swear there wasn't 2 minutes time lapse between the 2 photos. I'm thinking since they've all slept all day and are just now coming to life at bedtime I'm going to toss the lot of them out so I can get some sleep tonight!
Several people commented on the quilt on the couch. I do that because I have 5 cats that come inside. It's MUCH easier to grab a quilt off the couch and toss it in the washer than to get 5 cats worth of cat hair out of the upholstery. LOL!
