There was a morning beach walk of course, and a rocket launch at 12:30. Now I've just polished off a toasted ham and cheese and I am ready to put a quilt top together.
It has passed inspection by Lizzie, she always wants to make sure quilts on the floor are fully appreciated. I had sewn these blocks into rows as I made them during the year, but while walking the dog, I decided that they should be more scattered. It is still a rainbow like layout, but pairs of colors are staggered so that it isn't quite so linear. Although I have enough blocks completed, I might need a few more of specific colors finished up to complete the layout I have in mind. Maybe the extras will make a nice stripe to break up the back. I think that I just need to cut a few more sashing strips and find some cornerstones in the 2 inch square bin. At some point I will have to start quilting some of these, but there isn't room for a quilting frame with the tree up, so it will be a project for the new year. For now, I will visit Oh Scrap! and Kathy's quilts to continue to shop for new ideas to try out in 2021.
