The green and cream half square quilt top is done. I decided at the last minute it needed to be a bit bigger and have another spin. I really like it but part of me wishes I'd taken the time to have the lines flow into the second spin instead zig-zag. I had a hard time working the second spin in, by the time I figured it out it was late and I was grumpy.
I have lots of quilting to do. I ran out of safety pins or the pile would be bigger. I took the Juki off the frame so I can use it to quilt the butterfly quilt.
And I have a finish! Even the binding is done. I quilted Picnic with double loops in a sage green thread. This is not a big quilt but it took three spool of thread for the top and bobbins. Are they putting less thread on spools? I emptied one spool filling four bobbins then ran out of bobbin and top thread with about 10 inches of quilt left. I swear my larger quilts didn't take that much thread.
My adventure for the week:
My tire blew out on the highway at about 8 p.m. Not too bad as I was already slowing down to take the next exit. Thank goodness for a large shoulder on the road, the Highway Patrol, CSAA and a good spare tire. I was back on the road in 30 minutes.
We've had a lot of fires in my area. Below is a very pretty, very smoky sunset.
