never enough time
I did take a class on Saturday and learn to make an Aunt Philly's rug. It was fun and I got quite a bit done. It will be a good TV project. I picked colors to go in our new living room. It doesn't show very well in the picture, but it's greens with a redish plaid. I'm mixing in a plain green and maybe some beige depending on how big I end up making it.
Today I worked on some UFO baby quilts I started last year. Yellow Brick Road makes a good quick baby quilt when you don't know the decor or colors. I added some embroidery to try and make my Bernina 200 pay for itself. I like to keep a few baby quilts on hand in case someone needs one unexpectedly. I got 2 of them bordered and ready for longarm quilting. I have one more to do, but the border I chose has stripes and I didn't have time to match stripes today.
I also spent some time cutting 2 inch strips for leaders and enders. There is a quilt in my 40 Fabulous Quick Cut Quilts book that I have been wanting to make. It has 25 patch blocks and I would say I have at least half of what I need to make the quilt cut and quite a few sewn. I am really enjoying the leaders and enders concept. I feel like I am getting more bang for my time.
