On my design wall this week is the Buck a Block that I started a few years back. I finished the blocks and this week I hope to complete the cornerstone blocks and sashing. If things go really well, I’d like to get to the border, too. I’m not sure if you can tell, but the outside strips of the sashing are a small check of the wine color, green and gold that is in the blocks.
This is actually on my UFO Challenge list but is not the current or past choice. I’m to the point on my past months challenges that they are all ready to be quilted. The bad news is that it is getting to be about a month since a chip went bad on the robotic quilter and we are still waiting to get a good one to replace it. Until then, no quilting….I did get a row and a third done on my new quilting table/frame and I was loving how well things were working. In the meantime, I figured I’d get a head start on something so I don’t lose any time. Now that the weddings are over and it is way to hot to go camping, I have a good amount of time to sew, and I want to take advantage of it!
