Well, I’m back . . . at least for the moment. Do you really want to hear about the mundane things that I do in my day? Yeah? Okay? Well, you asked for it!
Yesterday, I went to church and when I got home, I continued the laundry that Brian had started for me. The first load was just finishing as I came into the house from the garage.
Since I’ve been going back to church, I’ve been going to the first service at 9:45 which gets me home around 11 instead of going to church at 11. Its the contemporary service which is the type of music I listen to most but I miss the old standards that I grew up on sometimes. I may go back to the service at 11 but I don’t know for sure.
While doing the laundry, I worked on the Dresden plate petals. This is the hardest part of the entire quilt partly because there are a gazillion of them and partly because they’re small. Once these are done, I’ll be able to put them into “plates/flowers” and then, put them on the blocks of off-white background. I’ve got sashing that I will also use for the flower centers.
The thing about this block is that they are named after the Dresden plate but they look more like a flower. I’ve also got another one that is more abstract with different sized “flowers” in it. I’ll put up pictures of both of them when I’m finished. I won’t quilt them because they are for a class that I’m going to teach and its easier to hang them if they are unquilted.
Below is a picture of a quilt I just finished for a customer. As I said in my Facebook post, I have no say about the allegiance of the customer– I’m just posting a picture.
