GONE FISHING

I am attempting to update my blog this week from my laptop.  Our old Mac has been traded in for a new model.  Both are with the the Geek Squad transferring information. While this little baby seems to work well, it is a bit of a chore to work on.  


I started a new project this past week.  After gifting a fire engine quilt to our oldest grandson Elijah, I feel like the other two boys should get ones for their birthdays too.  Noah and Ben are both avid fishermen, so I figured to make both fishing themed quilts.  They share a bedroom so they will be the same pattern, but I am making one with the blue lattice  and the other with gold shown below.  The size will be 74" by 94".  They are both tall, Noah who will be 17 is already 6'4" and growing and Ben is fast headed in the same direction at 14.

I finished my Picnic Under the Stars quilt top.  I am just waiting for a 108" back to arrive from Connecting Threads then it is off to the quilter.  

Other than that I continue my quest to somehow trim down my scrap bins with some work on Happy Trails blocks.

Five blocks done and just 4 to go.

And I cut out one in this 14"block size and another in a 10" block size.  I think I am actually making some progress emptying those scrap bins.

  1. The boys will love their fishing themed quilts. I made an extra long quilt for one of my SIL, who is 6'5". He was so touched that I would make it longer just for him.

  2. Great job on the scrappy quilts. Anything that makes a dent in the bins is a great project. Sounds like you've got a lot going on for the next few weeks.

  3. Yes, you are definitely making progress. Great idea to make matching, but different quilts for you two grandsons.
