Slowly on Sunday

 I've been slowly chipping away at the hand quilting for Leap Year.  It is my TV project, but I just don't watch that much TV right now.  Our cable is streaming, so it is just easier to use watch on my iPad. 
 After the dark green was done, I shifted to pink.   It is getting there.  I had a chance to work on it while watching Harry Potter movies recently.  One of my quarantine projects has been reading the Harry Potter books and then following up each with the movie.  I'm done now so I'll need to think about what to read next. 
So glad that my local library has digital checkout available.  I think they will be opening up tomorrow, but digital is still easier and safer.  I have had to venture out for work a couple of days recently, and being at home is much nicer.  We needed to get our classrooms cleared out before the end of the school year and tidy up some paperwork.  I'll be headed back again next week for my shift at drive through book return for the kids. 
I worked diligently yesterday to finally finish putting the snails trail blocks together!  
I pondered the border while I was ironing the rows.  I had some half square triangles left over from the outer corners of the blocks and worked some of those together into a zig zag.  Once I got it together, I noticed that a nice diamond pattern shows up if the dark and light colors alternate.  I might add a small solid strip to the outside of that, but it should all work out I think.  I should have some time this afternoon to sew again.  The boys are doing dungeons and dragons again and the girls are going to do some boogie boarding at the beach.  I'll be popping in to check on Kathy's Quilts first though.

Lovely hand quilting on your circles, fun project! I love your snails trail quilt, and it's always fun to find secondary patterns once it's done ;)

Too funny that you just finished reading the Harry Potter books and I am just starting to reread them! I could not interest my kids in them, but they have watched the first couple of movies with me! Good idea to read then watch the corresponding movie. I know parts o the books are very different from the movies. Snails trails is looking great, as is the yearly circle quilt. How are the houses coming along?

Love the snail's trail. If you want a series to read, The Outlander is fantastic. Diana Gabaldon. There is a series through Netflix that you can watch. Our library doesn't have the downloadable version of the books (sigh!!). Good luck with school.

Beautiful Snails Trails! Love how you're using up scrap units for the border and it looks like it was all part of the original design! The circles look great and it's always good to have a handwork project at the ready. I'll be taking some hand-piecing with me today to my hubby's kidney procedure.

Great things you are working on. How about The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. I have the extended versions of all of the movies. Great extra's on all the discs. That will keep you busy for a while. We even have all of them on audio book.
