This Dahlia, as I stated before is from a long time ago. The top was the greatest colors, back in the day. Now I still like the design and I do like the colors, but I don’t have any drive to finish this quilt. I have taken this quilt to retreat so many times. It is a standing joke just to ask if it is done. I might actually have it done by the time retreat rolls around. I don’t think this will make the monthly goal. The quilt needs to have the outside triangles put on it and a large green border (this is where I thought some gentle Ricky Tims’ curves) sewn on. A back needs to be found, layered and quilting completed. The girls go back to school this month, but we have one more traveling adventure before that happens. I will be excited if the quilting is underway. I have been working on the small “crazy” triangles for about 2 years. I hate this technique, I only have 4 left to go. I am so glad that this quilt will have a whole month dedicated to it.
On another note, this is fabric that DH brought me back from Nebraska last fall. The design is in one of the newer Turning Twenty books. I have been using this as a leader and ender project for the last 6 months. It is starting to shape up.
Here is also the knitting project that I have been working on. It is the standard “dishcloth” pattern…yo after 1st and knit to the end, turn and repeat. I think that I may want it to be larger. I am out of yarn.
I may see if I can find some, but think that I will start a new project or pull out the celtic knot (applique) for the trip. I just need to make a decision. I borrowed the knitting needles. I know that I shouldn't have problems traveling with them, but am not sure that I want to take the chance.
