Today is one of The Quilting Post’s (online group) PJ Party weekends. The second weekend of each month we try to get some dedicated sewing time and chat on line about our projects. I was a bit slow sewing today (but did manage to stay in my pjs till mid afternoon sewing) 🙂 but the slow down was mostly due to an interesting movie I was watching. Too much watching – not enough sewing. However, I did manage to get the rows finished and top sewn together from my Moon Over the Mountain swap blocks. I’m going to call it “Once in a Blue Moon.” One of the blocks in the far right row that looks like it has a white moon (due to the lighting/flash in my sewing room) is actually the palest blue hand dyed moon – hence the name. Now my dilemma is that I was originally thinking it would be one of the graduation quilts I’ll need next spring but it turned out a bit big for that since I’ve been making the nieces and nephews twin bed size quilts to use in their dorm as they head off to college. I’m going to have to throw it on my bed and see how large it really looks and try to decide if I want to make it larger with borders and if so, what the heck kind of borders I want to add. Right now it must measure about 77″ x 89″. So one more baggie of swap blocks out of the UFO boxes. There’s just two blocks left over – one will be a lable on the back and the other was my favorite block I made and I’m going to make a little single wallhanging out of that. Now to see what other trouble projects I can find to get into.
