I've been working on my quilt all weekend. I didn't get as far as I wanted to but I do have half of the strips sewn together and might get a few more done after posting this.
As random as I pulled and pieced these, you would think it would be hard to not have matching patterns and colours beside each other. I spent an hour mixing the rows before I found a pleasing pattern.
This part is for Quilting Newbie, as per our discussion on Friday, I did mark a test square with both pencil and a Crayola Washable Marker. Result -- pencil was still visible however the Crayola Marker totally washed out.....YEAH!On a sad note, my good friend Mark from work lost his Mother on Friday after a battle with cancer. I'm going to the wake this afternoon. Above is a recipe she gave me years ago. It's one of those fantastic Grandma, old-school CWL inspired squares. Remember those squares with the fruity marshmallows embedded in a squishy-cookie crumb; this is that recipe.
Panko crusted boneless wings, Nachos with cheese dip, Boy Scout Caramel popcorn from my nephew and Beverages!
Gee, I hope I don't see the 7 pounds I lost last month appear back on the scale tomorrow? Have fun and see you soon! GO (insert team name here)!! Whatever, we all know I only like it for the food and booze!
