Recap of the week that was

I know quiltathon was only Wednesday and Thursday, but I managed to squeeze out a little extra time on Friday as well. So all told this week was pretty productive:
  1. Finished Faye's Thimbleberries log cabin quilt.
  2. Got all the HSTs (120 of them) made for Orange Crush/ Tango Salsa step 4 (I now LOVE the easy angle ruler)
  3. Have drawn out my Hoffman Challenge quilt- full size.
  4. Started and finished Sue's Feathered Star quilt, complete with feathered wreaths and crosshatching.

The Hoffman fabric I ordered have been shipped, so hopefully I will have them on Monday and can start playing with them.

As for today, we have Summer in Maine! It is gloriously warm (80 degrees) with real humidity. I am so happy, really. This week's bread is made and the laundry is hanging out, so I'm going to go play in the garden a bit and then try to sand and paint the rocker for the front porch at the store. Having a nice place to sit and do hand work is an imprtant part of quilting...right?
