I was all set tonight to start quilting my swoon quilt. It is enormous - about 106" square, but I have a wide backing for it, and have figured out my quilting plan. So I headed downstairs, quilt and backing in hand and loaded up the long arm. Then I turned to the closet to pull out the white batting I knew I had in there - and it's only a queen size! 93x106" - not nearly big enough :( I debated piecing some batting, but decided I didn't want this particular quilt to have pieced batting if I could avoid it. So, my longarm is now loaded with a backing I can't do anything with, until after I get to the shop later this week. I sure hope they have some king size white batting in stock.
So, instead of quilting swoon tonight, I headed back upstairs to see if I could get started on my next quilt. Printed out the plan from EQ, and started counting fabric. I knew I had enough for the original, but I have decided to extend this one a bit. And, naturally, I'm short on one of the fabrics for the new plan. I couldn't find anything in the stash that would work, either as a replacement or an extension, so that's off the list for tonight too.
So, moving on,
I dug out some sashing fabric for a charity quilt I'm working on - and now can't find the blocks I'm sure I made. These are the blocks I have, but I was sure I had made about 10 more. If I did, they've found themselves an excellent hiding place. Time to give up for tonight I think.
