I'm Almost Whistling

>> Friday, February 19, 2010

I'm almost whistling because I'm making some progress on a few things today.

I'm almost done the middle section of my Valentine runner. In this photo you can see I used a different thread for the heart border on the yellow fabric. I think you can see it better ( at least in person). I've also gone around the paisley in the fabric - and traced it to make paisley blocks between the centres.
I've challenged myself to get this done before the Olympics are over. One more paisley block, then the pink block to do.

Will I get a medal? Probably not. But I will have one less UFO!

Since I realized that it IS Friday today - I made my weekly string block too. I think I like it going the other direction - with the bright yellow in the bottom right. I also cut some more foundations for March blocks.
(Yes, I even trimmed some more 1 1/2 triangle units for the basket block, too!)

I've been chain piecing my strip blocks - and finally working on another big project too.

This is when I almost started whistling.

These strip blocks, together with a few longer ones will make - another birthday present!

Because I can't stop at just one :)

Back to the Olympics on TV and some handquilting tonight.

Yay for strings. And I love those baskets.
