I cut 270 triangles for the flying geese border on the Judy Niemeyer quilt, Flowers for My Wedding Ring. I have twice that many to cut from the background fabric. Next up paper piecing the geese.
Today I worked on my Block of the Month for the Craftsy quilt taught by Jinny Beyer. This one will have flowers added to it in May. For now I had to be satisfied appliqueing the handle for the cherry basket.
Not my best piecing but I think I will leave it. It is the correct size overall, and that is good. The newest basket is on the far right.
I traced my next redwork pattern so I can work on that in my down time this month. I'm trying to do the largest blocks first. This one is 8" x 10". I don't think I posted the first one I did last month. I'm hoping to have it finished by next Christmas. It is called Christmas Twitterings. The link will open a new window with the entire quilt from e-patterns.
My son is working on becoming a chef. He would like more chef coats as they have to be washed after each shift. We were going to buy them but he has always had his own style and is thinking some custom coats might be fun. I need to research where to get some sturdy fabric for this but I'm considering making him some coats. Anyone know where to get fabric for a chef coat? He just changed jobs and all his old coats have the logo from the place he used to work. He is excited about cooking new foods and no more dishes!
My husband had a birthday this week. He is now 40! At least I was told, 60 is the new 40! He prefers a birthday pie instead of cake. His favorite is strawberry rhubarb but it's the wrong season so I went with Apple.
We are going to try and go to the ice caves on Apostle Island this weekend. The pictures are amazing. It is really warming up here fast though so they may shut down. You walk across part of Lake Superior to get to the caves. First time I haven't wanted warmer weather in a long time.
Have a creative day
