Working on the Quarter Circles Again and a Blogcation

More Quarter Circles Progress
Two more rows to put on this quilt and then I'll have to make border decisions. I decided to go with a very narrow (lighter) creamy white sashing that extends the red & white sashing throughout the quilt.  Love that. So far this quilt is shaping up to be just exactly what I wanted and oddly, very different from what I expected, all at the same time.  I know.  It doesn't make sense, but I do so like it when the end is in sight and I'm not having major regrets.

On a different note, I'm taking a blogcation for a week or two. I'll be hanging out with my sister in Portland for a least part of that time.  Hopefully I'll be able to get on the computer once in awhile and get my quilt blogging fix! Glad to have my hand piecing bag all set and ready to go for those times in life where I have to leave my sewing machine behind. lol I knew those bow-ties were gonna come in handy.

  1. Oh.. Portland! I hope you know there are tons of wonderful places to eat there, and do visit the Pittock Mansion (http://pittockmansion.org/) if you haven't already. Last time I was there my girlfriends and I went to an outdoor Jethro Tull concert. We were cracking up at "the sea of gray hair" ! LOL!! Have a great time Audrey, and "see" you when you get back.

    ps loving that circle quilt!

  9. Your circles are very interesting. They would not be as interesting without the stripe sashings through each block. That gives each block such life. A very good idea.

    Enjoy your time with your sister. I wish my sister would come to visit.
