Sunday's Progress

I am happy to report I have been able to cut and sew this fine weekend. Thank You to the rain! I made it possible for me to stay home after church and sew for several hours. I got my 9 patches finished and started the 4 patches. Unfortunately I have made a cutting error and will need to re-cut the fabric on those. I miss calculated by 1/2 inch but I can use the fabric in another part of the quilt. I am thinking I will but a scalloped keyboard edge on it and that will use up my miss-cuts. So two versions of 9 patches and a miss calculated 4 patch but at least I was doing a bit of quilting. It was nice to work on something I enjoyed rather than something I "needed" to do. So thank you Lord for a bit of rain. I'll take it.
 This is version 2. Uses up all the fabric evenly which makes me a happy camper. I know it is sad but I like the fabric to get used. Most of the fabrics used are from he In the Beginning line called Happy. With a few odds and ends from other groups. 
I really like this combo even if it is a bit off. There is great wording on the green patch (dream, hope, imagination, create, laugh, shine, play, inspire) fun positive words to encourage. 

Not much time for quilting this week more than likely but I hope to stitch a few hours in the evenings. We will see....
