This bumble bee is busier than I have been the last few days. Insomnia hit me for three nights, so I've been a zombie during the days. But I slept last night and feel almost human again. I think Dr. Jekyl may have been experimenting with something that kept him from sleep and that's what made him into a monster.
I used up some of my scraps from making the QOV blocks to make more blocks.
I won this Lapel Stick at Glenna's blog, http://www.hollyhockquilts.com It's a new tool for me that works really nicely. Thank you, Glenna.
I made this quilt top to donate. I visited Happy Cottage Quilter's blog http://www.happycottagequilter.blogspot.com and liked her quilting using Mary Mashuta's walking foot method of quilting. I have Mary's book, Foolproof Machine Quilting, and am using her technique on this smaller quilt.
I tried out my lapel stick to baste the templates, and it works well. No pictures of the quilting yet because I need to be fully awake before I work on it.
Several of you who visited my last post were interested in seeing the entire completed scrap quilt that I mentioned. Thank you for all of your lovely comments.
Perfectionists will find many flaws, but this quilt was the largest I have quilted so far, and it was a challenge. Also, I backed it in flannel for cozyness, but that made it heavier. I only free motion quilted the sashing. The rest is either straight stitch or a decorative stitch.
It fits my queen size bed well enough.
I did pick up a crochet project that I abandoned because I missed crocheting. That was a good craft to do for someone who can crochet in her half-awake state:)
Happy Memorial Day.
God Bless You.
