I did step away from the machines and get some housework done and we had a lovely time with our friends. Although I think I might have been a little over caffeinated most of the time, I was jumping around pretty hyper like. So now back at it again with the addition of a new commission to add into the worksheet. this one is for two boys quilts for bunk beds. On the plus side, she doesn’t want them until December, lots of time. Since I don’t have to start them yet, I’ve been working on getting Easy Street together.
This is at the half way point. Don’t know if it is obvious, but the last row is laying about 3 inches on the floor, my basting wall being not quite tall enough. Should be a great time getting this one basted, going to have to lay it on the living room floor I think.
For leaders and enders while I sew the rows together, I’ve been doing a scrappy/pink Irish Chain. This has two purposes. One is as a sample for a client who wants a pink/white baby quilt and also to give to a co-worker of my husband who just had a baby girl.
I keep dithering on whether to make it 3 X 4 or go bigger. Mostly because I don’t think I’ve seen a border on an Irish Chain and without one it would only be 30” across, a little small. Then again, Easy St. makes everything look small, maybe 30 X 40 is big enough. I’ll just keep sewing blocks while putting Easy together and see what I get.
