Slow Progress

But progress after all!

These are the pieces for two yellow/cream nine patch quilts for Ilene. As you can see they are still Work in Progress (WIP) but at a stage where they can become something more. I hoping later today, with luck and a cooperative DD (LOL)

The leaders and enders I was telling you about from my retreat last weekend are here.

They have been pressed, but still need trimming. At least this gives you an idea of what they look like and how they are going to be set. And as my living room, the only place big enough to lay out blocks, is down to bare concrete on the floor, this is on hold till the new floor gets laid. (Fingers crossed for the end of this coming week)

I finally got down to the LQS to get border fabric for my Basket Case quilt from last weeks retreat. I think this is going to work, its from the Fig & Plum range or one very close to it. You Like?

I also picked up the black i need to get this kit moving too. Did I tell you I'm planning on cutting a load of projects so that when I'm laid up later in the year I can do a little sewing when I feel up to it, but not have the strain of the cutting on my back.
I must of had this pattern/kit for at least 10 years. I think its about time it made it into the pile of completed quilts and off the UFO list. Well, that's the plan anyway.

I made that flying geese quilt years ago and it turned out just beautiful. I got the Jenny Beyer kit with all the fabrics and borders. I love that quilt. Have fun with it.
