I made it through the family party on Saturday and spent all of Sunday sewing (to recuperate, you know). The party was fun and it was nice to see everyone. But I was mostly excited to get back to sewing (party planning/executing takes a lot of time away from sewing).
I thought it would be prudent to work on my Modify Tradition blocks:
And I'm so happy I did because I really love how they're turning out! I was so excited once I finished these "test" blocks that I sewed diligently for hours and hours. I don't know how Vector could sleep through such excitement and frantic sewing!
I even have an idea for the back...do you remember these green and blue log cabins?
I've been sashing them in white and I'm almost to the point where I can sew them together. I think it would make a great "back" for this quilt...since log cabins are traditional and the colors will match the "front" very well.
My goal is to finish all the blocks for the top before I leave town on Friday. That sounds like an easy goal but I'm going to be a little distracted starting tonight...but it's a secret for now...expect the first ghost when the bell tolls one. I mean, expect a post about the surprise later tonight.
