I have had a few flights and in-the-car-as-the-passenger time lately. So that means some progress has been made on my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt (do I hear cheering??).
Here is a picture of the top laid on my queen-sized bed. Keep in mind that I have quite a few more rows to add for the pillow tuck. In the picture, the top isn't even to the top of the mattress, but it's still encouraging.
My husband, son, and I are leaving in the AM for a flight to Arizona to see the newest family member, my oldest son's first child. Plenty of stitching time awaits!!
Here are two blocks I worked on while flying to PA this past Monday. I did a little stitching then, too. I was so glad my manicure scissors were able to fly with me. I got them at Walmart in the beauty department. The tips are rounded.
Here is what is in the soon-to-be-finished stage. Two of the blossoms are partially finished, and one that is complete is not attached to the mother ship yet.
This is laying on top of my bed. I have some more rows to piece, but I'm much farther along than I thought!!
Here is the plan for the next five blocks. I have high hopes, so I cut the strips I needed to the right width to take on the airplane with me.
I have put piles of coordinating fabric where the next block colors are selected.
