Yesterday morning I sewed the last few rows together on my watery quilt, so it is done now, according to the pattern. I think I like it as is, without a border, but I'm going to mull it over for awhile to make sure.
I'm still loving all the movement in the quilt.
I finished in time to go out to lunch. I was meeting a group of other Army wives for lunch at a cute restaurant on the grounds of the Yorktown Battlefield. It is located inside a historic building. We had lots a fun conversation and food was yummy. Best of all, they mixed up my order, which made it late, so they compensated by giving me my entire meal for free! I'm here to say that there really can be such a thing as a free lunch!
I should have taken some pictures. Yorktown was so lovely yesterday. It was a bit chilly, but the sun was shining, the sky was blue, and the river was sparkling below and the tall, white monument was brilliant against it all.
When I got home, I spent a few minutes deciding on my next project and then I got started. This is a quilt that I had no plans to make until this week. Once I got involved in making Schnibbles, I started acquiring charm packs. I seem to have "quite a few now," and some are from the same designer, but different lines. However, the lines go together nicely, so I've been looking around for a pattern that makes a larger quilt out of multiple charm packs. I know that Carrie's pattern, Hubble, fits the bill, but I already made that and I would prefer to try another pattern. I was a bit stumped until earlier this week when The Moda Bakeshop showcased a new project called the Honey Honey Layer Cake Quilt which can also be made using charm packs!
I spent yesterday sorting through 4 charm packs and beginning to trim and prep so this morning I go right up and start sewing. Hopefully I will have to progress to report next time!
I hope everyone has a great weekend. As for today, "Beware the Ides of March!"
