Progress made

After I got home from my Stash class on Saturday, I ate lunch and then got to work on my Lover's Lane Nickel quilt. I separated all of my pieces that I had made so far so I could see where I was and what I needed to do. Here is everything that I had when I started today.


Then, I got started on sewing my half square triangles.





This last picture shows my progress on trimming them up to 4.5 inches square. Very time consuming! Lots of hours put in on this today!

I also got the first part of the four patches done before I called it quits for the night. A very odd thing happened while I was sewing. I ran out of bobbin thread and spool thread at the same time! Now, this did not make Bubba happy and the thread cutter is not working again. But there was also some thread tangled up as a result of this problem and I will need to take the casing off and clean it out again. But as long as I am chain sewing, I won't need to use my thread cutter and we will be in good shape.

I had a whopping 12 hours yesterday! Go me!! And I am now in the 60 hours range so far for the month! Gina, I think that you are going to have to pay up! :)

Now, I am off to work on those 4 patches!

Looks good! Go Jill! (Do you notice I cheer all of you on, and have not shown favoritism to any of you?) Maybe Jen or Moneik have cast a spell on Bubba, or have a voodoo 'Bubba' and is stuffing threads in the 'voodoo Bubba' cutter to try and slow you down!

Glad to see you are getting a lot done. You are really going to pass me by this weekend.
