Happy Monday! Can you believe we are on the back side of September already? I feel like just last week we were in June, and now fall is almost here. Whew! We have had some absolutely beautiful weather here – warm days, cool nights – I hope it sticks around for a while.
I am making progress on the Twirl quilt. I got all of the messed up blocks fixed, and I am so happy I changed them. It really does make a difference in the look of the quilt once the blocks are sewn together.
Above is a photo of part of the top spread out on my bed. My design wall isn’t big enough for a king size top, so I’m using my bed or my living room floor. Since hubby was watching a football game in the living room, I decided using my bed as a design space was probably safer. 🙂
I have a couple of rows to sew together and then the top will be ready for the borders. Just as I was working on putting the last two rows together yesterday, my machine decided to throw a little tantrum. I’m giving it a break, mostly because I want a break myself, and I’ll get back to it today.
I can’t wait to show you guys the top when it is all put together – I hope you don’t get tired of these little glimpses I’m sharing with you now. I really do love how these fabrics are working together and I think it’s going to be a gorgeous quilt when it is finally finished.
I want you to know how much I appreciate your link-ups each week. I visit each link and love seeing all the different projects going on. I try to comment on each post, but there are some I am unable to. See, I usually catch up on all my blog reading on my iPad because it’s so portable. Some of the blogs use Captcha to keep out the spam and those are the ones I can’t comment on. The Captcha generates a code that needs to be copied in order to comment – I can’t cut and paste the code when I’m on my iPad (or I don’t know how) and I can’t always get to my desktop computer.
So please know – if you don’t hear from me it’s not because I’m not reading your posts. I am, and I love them! My hope is to get my laptop up and running soon so I won’t have this issue, but until then I’m just making it work. And please don’t think I’m griping about the Captcha – I totally understand why you are using it.
So now – what projects are you working on this week? Twirl is my crush for Main Crush Monday and I would love to see yours. You can link up below – here’s how:
