This and that

Not a whole lot going on around here… I finished the 4 big checkerboard blocks and just felt like something was missing

So I pulled more fabric and made it bigger!

I’ve had this fleece blanket laying my sewing room for a few years now…it just happens to be the perfect size for backing and it’s primarily gray with a little blue. Works for me!!

I’m thinking of finishing this ‘pillow case style’ (Ha, I have no idea if that’s to correct name!). I’m going to place these pieces right sides together with a piece of batting on the outside…then sew all the way around the outside, leaving an opening for turning it right side out. I’ll close the opening, do some minimal quilting and then sew a decorative stitch about a 1/4″ from the edge all around to finish it. I sure hope it turns out like I see it in my head!!

Other than this project I’ve not been doing much… we went to Damon’s on Friday for a late lunch and sat on the balcony enjoying the beach

Yesterday morning I drank my coffee on our back screened porch watching the golfers, hummingbirds and squirrels

That’s about all for now…I hope things are going well in your neck of the world πŸ™‚

Have a great rest of your weekend!
