"Hello Darlin', it's been a long time...." (stash report week 21)

It's race day - the 98th running!!!

It has been a while!  Spring sputtered into our area and I've been doing all kinds of landscaping chores and just plain ol' enjoying the out of doors after our cold winter.  We had a new deck put on, our old cedar was rotting and rickety.  Then, we got our patio furniture arranged under the deck (which is a story tall) and new rope lights put up, and, well, frankly, I'd rather be right there on the swing with a good book than just about anywhere these days.

Needless to say, not much has happened on the sewing/quilting front.  The borders are on the Curves Galore BOM and the backing fabric, from my stash btw, is washed and pressed and waiting for me to get into shape.

I got one Easy Street pillow put together with the binding attached  Now to get the other backing cut and sew both bindings down.

At our last group sew in I started another project.  One that I plan to work on when I'm with the group.  It's called In All Its Glory and it's a quilt that DH pointed out years ago when we vacationed in northern Wisconsin.

The fabric and pattern have been sitting around for at least 2 years, maybe 3, and I decided I should get cracking.  It's mostly courthouse blocks, nothing difficult about construction, but oh! the cutting of 1.5" and 1" strips!

I'm using 1.5" my Marti Michel log cabin ruler rather than strip piecing.  It makes everything so exact.  These are the blocks for step one all finished.

Sorry my pics are so small - I can't figure out how to get the Flickr photos to Blogger - uggh!

No changes in the numbers until I get the Curves Galore ready to quilt.
