To keep me going, here is a progress report for this week. I've sandwiched and quilted that first row of three blocks on DD's ufo. It is here on the right:
I like this method of QAYG since it lets me quilt right up to the edge. These are mostly done with stitch in the ditch quilting except for the first one. And here is how it looks on the back. I'm so glad that my DD picked a busy print for the back - makes my advanced beginner quilting mistakes disappear. I always fret over what pattern to use for the quilting - would love some suggestions for sampler quilts. I've also started sashing the next row of three which you can see in the first picture. Now I have to go do a mission or two, and then I'll let myself quilt a little more today in what is turning out to be a dreary looking day. It's not giving us much rain, but it is cutting the fire hazard in the local mountains and for that I am grateful.
