Decided to work on the Challenge Quilt today. Finished now are all the red triangles. I decided to go back and do a little extra quilting on the Christmas print. I buried some threads and made binding yesterday. I also decided on the quilt design for the background fabric. This is a slight alteration from the original stencil.
I think that it is going to turn out well. This shape is found in the sashing between all 9 of the blocks. That only leaves the inner border to figure out. I started practicing with this shape. It helps so much to take 5-6 trips around the shape prior to starting on the real thing. I started on the real thing—broke a thread right off the start. Decided that I made enough progress and called it a night. The girls were home from school and decided to hear all about lunch, teachers, study hall, etc. It will be a few days before I can get back to it.
Went to the local quilt shop today, after heading to the doctor. I bought 4 fat quarters—needed a little fix after being told to loose weight, stop itching the eczema and to relax. Blood pressure pills are now needed because of the inability to relax.
I did exercise, change the bed, do dishes (big pans that I was avoiding) and actually called the doctor for the appointment today.
