First up, the big decision...geese all the way around or not?
Look close! They are different, though I was having trouble getting it all in the photo.
There will be a skinny off-white border on either side of the geese, though I didn't unfold the fabric much, so you don't get a good idea there, either. Sorry!
And since this stalled out, I decided to get to work again on the teen boy quilt...
...the last 24 blocks pinned and ready to start sewing...
...what a mess...those papers snarl up worse than just fabrics...
...but it was worth it!
I plan to add a green border, but after seeing it here, I'm wondering if maybe I should squeeze a really skinny grey border in there first? (Darn it, I've already picked it up!)
And now the hubby is sleeping, so it's time to occupy myself with quieter things.
But I want to show some of the other fun I've had...
I had a birthday and my brother and his quilter wife and my parents all got me fabrics:
(Darn...another not so good photo...I think a new camera is going on my Christmas list!)
The jelly roll is "Max and Whiskers" and very cute kitties and doggies. The "drink" is just a batch of coordinating fabrics (fat quarters, I think) but packaged so cute. I have no idea what I"ll use either for, but I want to!
And I also bought myself a new iron...again...
I've used it quite a bit in the last 2 days and LOVE it. I can't believe how much better it works than the old one. Maybe the old one used to work this well, but I don't think so. It just glides over seams (no hanging up), things come out smooth the first time and I don't have to mash it down with all my might either! I'm so happy...and I was very skeptical after the last one I bought turned out to be no better than the one it was replacing.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It was a bit chilly here, but the sun was beautiful. I kinda felt guilty being inside, but I'm not much of a fan of cold!
