Aug 02: The fabric for the Ivory Dogwood quilts is here. I will be making two, perhaps 3. Aug 03: The print is so much larger than I expected that I am trying to get a feel for how the quilting might look. First task--pre-wash...tomorrow. May take several tomorrows ... lol Aug 04: The lights are washed.& ready to cut. Aug 05: The darks are washed, not dried or pressed. Aug 06: Working on partly custom, mostly whole cloth layout for the 2nd quilt. It will be awhile before a final plan emerges. I've been having an unusual number of "unforeseen circumstances", all good, but hard to get anything I planned done. Good thing too. Just learned my quilt recipients are enduring "unforeseen circumstances" too. Aug 09: The last few days, I finished the washing, drying, pressing & folding all the fabrics--a good pause point. I have decided we all need to leave this alone for a while, me too. The parameters & options & decisions & life are conflicting--solve one question, three pop up in its place. There is no urgency here. Aug 30: Pieced ready to quilt. Aug 31: Backing is prepped ready to load. Sep 01: Loaded. Quilting. Sep 02: Quilted. Sep 04: Bound.
