I worked until about midnight.
I just can’t stop.
This quilt needs to be a top by the time I leave here today, and I think it will be.
These Scrappy Mountain Majesties blocks are so fast they take no time at all, and I can’t believe the amount of fabric I have been able to fly through ---and yet the bucket still looks just as full?
Quilter's miracles I guess!
I’m not sure when Mark’s chemo will start, but I leave for Texas on Thursday and I’d love to see this quilted tomorrow and bound on Wednesday. Is it possible? I don’t know, but that’s what I’m shooting for.
Last night I thought I counted right, but this morning when I laid out the blocks I found I had far to many that leaned THIS direction and not enough that leaned THAT direction. It left me three blocks short on the bottom row.
Not to be one to waste blocks, I can just make the quilt one row wider with the ones that leaned the other direction….and make six more blocks and call it good.
I’m loving how this looks and I think Mark will too. It’s definitely a GUY quilt.
My view off the deck this morning ---
Last night it got very windy and most of the leaves are gone from the tree in the left of the photo ---the hills are tinted copper in the autumn morning sunlight.
The next time I come up here will probably be for Thanksgiving and all the leaves will be gone. It will be great having my dad and both of my sons here to fill this space with family warmth and laughter and togetherness.
