Rainy Day Quilting

       Rainy days are great for staying inside and sewing so I have made good progress. The triple machine blanket stitch for Celtic Fantasy units is very time consuming and tedious. After working on a couple of units, I needed a break. I took time to piece all the simple brick blocks for GD Mattie's new quilt. My design wall is not large enough for all the blocks so I used my dining table to lay out and pin several rows at a time. Here are the first 4 rows.

How I did on last week's goals :

1. make progress on Celtic Fantasy - Done. Machine triple blanket stitch is complete on 5 of 21 units. It takes more time than I imagined.

2. start quilting charity/comfort quilt- Done. At least ¾ is quilted. Following is a special FM motif quilted in a focus light area.

3. control and use scrap fabric- not done.
