I really need a finish....

This afternoon, Diamond Fields chain blocks were completed and added to the design wall.  Once pieced, the quilt center will measure approx. 56"x56", so my next task for this design-in-the-making will be to come up with some border treatments.

But, with the middle-of-the-year mark looming on the horizon, and only ONE FINISH under my belt for the year (OMGoodness!!!!!! What?!?!?!)
I finished up the quilting of the New Year's Eve mystery that had been percolating on the quilting frame for the past couple of months. 
With the quilting complete, I got side-tracked with making dinner, and then playing Jarts outside with the girls, which lead to walking around the yard and ooogling the garden, and fruit trees, and playing with the goats, and giving the pigs some grass clippings....and then hanging another load of laundry out on the clothes line....

Basically all of that says that I did not attach the binding yet, so it's not quite a finish yet!  

The next two days are booked with math summative assessment meetings and softball games, so this may not see a finish-finish until Friday.

Progress......

On a completely non-quilting note:
Just took a load of clothes off the line;  9:30PM at night.......BEAUTIFUL outside!
Crickets chirping, but I dare say the frogs are out-croaking the crickets tonight.  Finally a non-rainy evening ( at least for now ).  Storms are tentative to roll in;  under a Tornado watch until 1 AM.  **shrug**

What'cha gonna do?

I love the New Year Mystery quit, it looks like a mediaeval tiled floor. Where is all this rain coming from? We've had a couple of lovely days, but more rain is forecast for the next four days at least.

Both quilts look great! So cool to see you design your own...I never venture there! Looking forward to trying to keep pace with you this summer!

Amy, Diamond Fields is absolutely gorgeous! It makes me want to go spend the day in the quilt room. Unfortunately, life has other plans. maybe someday soon I will get back in there. Til then, I will live vicariously...

Seeing your mystery makes me want to go back and see if the steps are still available. I really like it and your color combination is so warm and comforting.

Send some of the rain this way please. We just 20 degrees in two days... wicked hot here today. These are the days when I think of snow.

Hugs!

The new years eve mystery looks great with the quilting! Love the border treatment with the darker cornets. Once you get bck into the swing of things, I am sure the finishes will start rolling out. Until then, life beckons.
