Happy Thanksgiving, to all those celebrating today! On days like today, the advantages of working for a Canadian office of an American company become clear. It's not a holiday for us here, but with the entire US on holiday for 2 days (or more) this week, it's like a vacation ;) This year, I'm taking advantage of the low activity and taking 2 vacation days myself this week.
I have put the first day of vacation to good use. The top of my black and white and red quilt is now complete! (It really is a rectangle - just a bad photo below)
I think I can now honestly say that I am done with hexagons. Way too many little tiny Y-seams in this quilt, so I am quite happy to see the end of them. Next step - find the backing fabric I bought on my earlier trip to the quilt store, and start the quilting. I hope I can get that started today, but time will tell. Tomorrow morning, I leave for a 3 day trip and I'm not quite finished packing yet. I need to finish that first, then head out for a couple of hours this afternoon Time permitting, I'll start the quilting tonight.
