Well, not only did I not bring enough sashing fabric for my triangle gatherings quilt, but I clearly underestimated how many blocks I'd need to complete the quilt so I'm waaaay short of blocks.
This is how it's looking as far as I could get:
It's very disappointing that I hadn't packed enough "supplies" since I have them all just sitting in a basket in California... GRRR.
We went to a local baseball game the other night and had a blast. The team is called the Bend Elks. The "stadium" was empty... maybe because it's akin to pre-season?? It's the kind of place that if a particular batter strikes out, they offer beer half off for the next 10 minutes! VBG
I'm now back to the hourglass quilt which I will hopefully finish this week! I need two rows of purples all around and it should be finished...
It looks like blogger has fixed the glitch and I may be getting comments in my email again... WOOHOO
Hmmm, maybe you just need to make a smaller quilt. I can't believe you need more blocks. It seems like you made a million! Love the hourglass. Bonnie will be proud of you!ReplyDelete
Oh I have 98 blocks... just didn't bring enough to the cabin... not just a 20 minute ride back home to replenish!! vbgDelete
oh DARN...I have done that too! It is shaping up to be so very, very pretty...love it!ReplyDelete
Thanks. I'll be happy when it's put together and I'll have used up maybe half the blocks!!Delete
Whoops!! Hope you had a nice time, in spite of your packing "accident."ReplyDelete
It's been great!! Thanks...Delete
Love baseball ... we have a minor league team, too. Traverse City Beach Bums and take in a few games each summer. Just a lot of fun.ReplyDelete
Oh lucky you. One of these days I'm going to come visit you!!Delete
I tend to over pack quilting supplies if I am taking them away from home. How disappointing for you to not have enough. Maybe you weren't going to make the quilt as large as your current layout.ReplyDelete
When I'm going to a retreat, I do the same. But we had our grandkids for the weekend before we left so I honestly didn't have the time to carefully think out what I needed to bring. Not a big deal, though...Delete
Bummer! I love your various colored setting triangles--so fun! The hourglass quilt is going to be awesome!ReplyDelete
Thanks. It's nice to be in the homestretch on that quilt!!!Delete
That is so annoying when you have left behind he very things you eed! Oh well just move on to the next project! Lol! One of the benefits of having more than one project at a time.VBG,ReplyDelete
