Good Morning Quilters! Did you miss an hour of sleep last night? They say that Daylight Savings Time has the purpose of making better use of daylight. There are lots of opinions for and against it, but as a quilter, it doesn’t bother my life.
The big squares quilt is now 2/3’s down from the design wall, and it will be a complete quilt top by next Monday. I have 5 more columns to sew onto this bigger section. I put it on the couch for this picture so you can see Penny Lane also. She is supervising my progress. NOT! She is sleeping on the job!
I put the plaid blocks on the design wall along with the “orphan blocks” that I found, and I am not sure if I like the mixture. I will make more blocks and decide later. I would add one row of the plaid and white squares to the outer edge of the added blocks to make them fit in size with the blocks with the outer plaid/white squares.
I plan on making more blocks of the original plan, as they are all cut and divided into baggies, one block in each baggie. I also thought if I don’t use the “orphan blocks” on the front, I could put a row of them on the back. I usually don’t do anything for the back side of a quilt, do you?
Foremost in my mind this week is the empathy I feel for the people of Ukraine, and am unable to think of some way I can help them. It is a feeling of helplessness. I will donate to Samaritan’s Purse as I know that organization will be helping. I am daily praying for all the people who have left their homeland and are now refugees, and for those who are staying behind to fight. It is hard to carry on life as normal here when the tragedy of war is happening there. Have you found a way to be of help?
I so appreciate your faithfulness in participating in the Design Wall Monday Linky Party. Your pictures and stories on your blogs give me happiness. Thank you.
