My Carolina Chain quilt has grown some. After taking some measurements and crunching some numbers, I think I will have a satisfactory throw size quilt if I add 70 more blocks and a modest border. So, I’ve been busy cutting and sewing.
When I delved back into my quilting closet, I surprised myself with all the fabric remnants I had forgotten about. I’m a little heavy on greens and a little short on lights, but I should have enough with what I have on hand.
There are several other projects waiting in the wings so I want to finish this one. Unfortunately, work on it needs to pause later today, as I really must hem up some pants.
A few of you were nice enough to inquire about my new smart phone. I found its internet and e-mail features useful while travelling to the Quilt Festival in
. I still don’t quite get the texting thing, but am forcing myself to try that too. I've also discovered I enjoy listening to music on it with the ear buds. There’s a pretty steep learning curve, but I think I’ll adapt to this new tool. Houston
