I am giving my back a break from pinning the Disappearing Ninepatch quilt. It is about 1/3 of the way pinned and bending over the table isn't as easy as it used to be.
I am going to have to do some cleaning up and rearrangement of furniture to get set up for the quilting.
Wow! I just noticed that the angle from which I shot this photo distorted the squares that are flat on the table top. The are really square as in the forefront where they hang off the table.
I have this back up on the design wall again. The six blocks on the right are not sewn on to the rest of the quilt yet. They are blocks I just made and I have 3 more to put together and then either 3 or 9 more to make. I am mulling it over in my mind; I am not sure how big I want to make this one.
Here's Lucy again. She had a big morning, watching the birds, chasing her shadow, laying under the bed and grabbing toes as we walk past, tearing around the house like a streak of lightning and slipping out the door when I went out to the garden and I couldn't get the door closed fast enough. I caught her easily because she is more interested in inspecting everything than she is in running away.
I had to shut her in the bedroom while I spread and layered up the quilt. She thought it was a game. I hope I can get it done before she wakes up and Jack opens the bedroom door.
