The wonderful thing about taking pictures of what you have on the go is that you are able to see what you need to move around. I could see that I had way too many of the zowie green squares going on in one area but none in the rest. An easy fix as I just rearranged the strips. This quilt is all vintage sheet 4" squares. They were leftovers from a vintage sheet picnic quilt. This quilt is destined for the medical room bed at my school. I was tired of the dingy scratchy blankets that we currently use. I figure if one of my students is sick and waiting for a parent, they deserve better than a super scratchy blanket. Super simple. 15 strips of 20 squares making it a nice 52" by 70". I am going to use batting scraps and a vintage sheet for the back. I am sure that I have some big chunks of batting that I can stitch together to make it work.
Other than this project, Husband mowed all the lawns. This was a huge feat as the rains have caused the grass to grow like stink. While Husband attacked the grass, I attacked the flowerbeds. I hauled massive quantities of "biomass" to the compost in the woods. The buttercups have grown to Jurassic proportions and they love to grow where I do not want them. I also had to beat back the California poppies and the Forget Me Nots. They were threatening to take over the universe.
With all of this, I feel that huge tasks were accomplished. Not just in quilting land but at home as well. A good weekend! Happy Diamond Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth. It was fun to watch the flotilla on the Thames this morning during breakfast!
