I have 30 blocks done and just put them up on the design board. I think I'd like to make 12 more and set them 6 x 7 - but not sure if I have time. I have to have the top including borders put together by the 17th. Haven't decided on a setting yet, either, but kind of like the furrows one. I do like the blue and white with a few purple/red-purple strips thrown in. I'm definitely going to make another blue and white quilt someday.
Anyway -- that's my accomplishment this weekend. I finished 15 of these blocks today -- the last round of logs.
I also pulled out the next quilt for the longarm and pressed the top and the backing. I hope to get it loaded after I finish the Cabin Fever quilt. I'm itching to try my new panto on it!
Steve called this afternoon. He was totally blown away last night by a surprise party engineered by an old friend and helped by Kim. About 50 friends showed up from all over -- a couple from Atlanta, a couple from Arizona, Green Bay, WI, Chicago, Peoria, IL. He was totally surprised -- I would have liked to have seen his face -- but he told me all about it. Collectively they are known as Team Talbott and they just wanted him to know they are all in his corner (and a whole lot more that couldn't make it last night). Even his best friend from high school arrived from Atlanta!
Friends and family.
