When I think of yesterday, I am not sure what I got accomplished. Frank didn't go anywhere so it seemed like a weekend. I guess. He's always on the road somewhere with customers, but every once in a while he needs to do a bunch of paperwork. And doesn't have an office as we know it. So he works at home. He spends every night in front of the TV at night working on his paperwork.
I spent most of the afternoon working on a set of quilt pieces, blocks just isn't quite the word for it, putting them together. It originally was a set of 4 large strip set blocks and a black sashing and border.
I hated it. So after a while I cut it up and began to sew them together. It was about the time that the early beginnings of the Modern Movement was throwing pieces together in tentative randomness.
I now have a top. Nothing earth shattering, just Tentative Randomness.
It needs to be squared up and a border added. I tested a pink yesterday, but it was not the right color. Maybe a blue or green.
Or Purple. Purple just seems to go with everything.
I also dug through and found the Transportation Quilt. I saw this at the Pontchatoula Quilt Show a number of years ago. For some reason I decided that it should be a QAYG. I had never done one before and without a lot of understanding, I set out to free motion me some blocks!
They worked out, for the most part, but there were a couple of places where I worked too close to the edge of the block. I got discouraged and set it aside. It is not great, but it will be completed and maybe find a home somewhere.
Really the only thing it needs is to have the seams on the back sewn together. I can do that. And a binding, but I need to wait on that for a bit. So it will go in the quilted pile that needs to be squared and bound.
Yep, random sewing!
