It was another 5AM morning with hubby's alarm. Even if I hadn't gotten up at that time, by 6:30 AM, I would have been out-n-about wondering what the big ol' rumbling rukus outside was. Looks like our road's shoulder is getting some gravel attention.
The weather is cold and dreary yet again today. Rain hasn't fallen (yet), but....ick! Still not a day that I can spend out in the garden, unless I want to sink.
Therefore, another guilt-free vacation day to spend downstairs.
I came across a container that had my Pineapple Blossom blocks, started waaaay back in January, 2010!
Psht! I thought I could turn my 'math-brain' off for a few weeks! But let me tell ya, those borders took a little bit of configuring to make them work. However, after a couple of hours, I have another flimsy added to my quilting to-do pile. I even prepped a backing for it :) Pineapple Blossoms - 72"x72".
Next came loading Forever and spending a bit of time quilting it now that my mom gave me the go-ahead to finish this up as a wedding gift.
And I simply have to put an all-call out for ANY HELP/SUGGESTIONS for this blanket!
My Sis-in-Law handed this to me months ago with a request of "making something from it." It has sentimental meaning to her mother and she wanted to do something with it. Come to find out, 'mom' had thrown it away after being tired of continually trying to patch up holes getting made.
I. Was. Stumped. Then. And. I. Am. Still. Stumped. Now.
She's suggested "just cut it up (to get rid of the bad parts) and sew it together with something else." (She's not a quilter). It's one of those fleecy type blankets. I've sewn up the holes to at least get a start on it. BUT....!?????!!??
I have no clue what to do.
