Quiltathon Results and Day 2

I didn't get as much done as I would like yesterday... big surprise.

But I did get Fran's "City Girl" quilt done. I stitched a border design on that quilt 3 times and picked them all out before I decided the 4th one was OK. I think the do/undo ratio for longarms is about 1:15 for every 1 minute you sew, it will take you 15 minutes to pick out.

I got my QFAH fabrics chosen and got a nice surprise in the process. I had some fabrics picked out...they were nice, but just darks -kinda reproduction/historical and not terribly exciting. So I go looking in my small brights pile and what do I find? 3-1/2" strips left over from another project! So I will have more colors in my stars since none of these are WOF, but I'm making more stars anyway since I need a bigger quilt. I figured it out and I need about 12" per color to cut the Recs units. Once I get the fabric cut for the QFAH I will count it on my stash report.

I was playing with the Circle Lord again and this is what I came up with. Way cool.
The bread is all done. I spent some time pulling weed while it was rising. I hate to waste the sunshine. The dogs were out in the fresh air all day too, so they are exahused. I don't know how laying on the ground can be such hard work, but when they come in from outside they sleep like rocks.

So now to work.
