If you must know, we haven't seen a sign of toast, eggs, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal... I think someone is pulling our legs! ;-) Actually, last Saturday morning I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast in Cedar Rapids, Iowa's IHOP. We Could go OUT!
At any rate, Konnie, Lori and I had a fun couple of hours or so together yesterday - puzzling, "hashing"(no pun intended), and re-hashing the configuration and approaches to sewing this together. Once we'd finished, we made good time sewing strips and large triangles. There are only a couple more things to do, and we'll be ready to tackle the "sandwich" (sorry) and begin the process of hand-quilting!
(Have you detected the progress?)
We think we're going to invite "the troups" at church that would like to participate in this final step!
We're planning our next get-together in a couple of weeks. The goal? Creating the red/white/green border.
Yes! We believe we're bringing, for your enjoyment and edification, the Italian Version of "Breakfast in Bed!" ;-)
Lori and I are back at it... we had a workshop last week and sewed a few blocks together. Our next assignment, whenever we choose to accept it, is to create and add large triangles before we can join the strips!
Check out the photos below!
(We are inviting a friend - Konnie - to join us, also! Hopefully she can participate next time!)
Flashback: Once upon a time, when my children were young, they told me to stay in bed. The brought me breakfast -- in bed, and they had made it all by themselves. What a great memory!
Hold that thought!
For now, Lori and I are going to attempt another "memory maker!" We're making "Breakfast in Bed!" But don't get too excited. As much as we'd love to serve you, that's not what we have in mind. :-)
This next quilt project is entitled "Breakfast in Bed!" So... if you want "Breakfast in Bed" by Lori and me, you'll have to attend the quilt auction at the Inservice designed to raise Mission money next Fall!!!
This is the progress so far... cutting strips and pieces.
