It's been a while since I blogged. First, I was putting together my blocks from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I have decided to try to avoid blocks of the month because I just get sick of getting the project out, working on it, then putting it away. And I get antsy for finishing at some point in the process. So that is my resolution for the future. Let's hope I can stick to it.
At any rate, this rainbow quilt is going to be quite large - queen-sized, perhaps. So I put three sections together and am quilting it that way. I really do like to quilt samplers since every block can be a new experience. I can try out different techniques with both the walking foot and the free motion one. I finished the center which was made of 36 blocks (wow!) and now I am quilting the two sides - another 36 blocks and borders. When I finish the quilting, I will put all the sections together, make the last two borders, put them on, and then quilt. It will probably be another month before I finish!
We took a long walk at the Wells Reserve with its several miles of hiking trails, visited the Seacoast Trolley Museum, and spent a nice morning at the beach. I read Louise Penny's and Sue Grafton's latest books, and we had some nice seafood and other meals out. It was very relaxing, and the weather couldn't have been better.
Happy Labor Day!
