Breakfast Stitching After a Week Away

So not much to show for a couple of weeks, but here's what I have.

A picture of the row I'm working on.

I forgot to take pictures of a complete row on the other side of the quilt.  So here you are.  Not the greatest photos, but you get what you get.

And an overall shot of part of the quilt.  I wish you could see this in real life; it's so much prettier than indoor shots on my kitchen floor.

That's it.  We were up in Maine last week.  We like to stay in Ogunquit, which is southern coastal Maine.  Went all over the place, up to Kennebunk, across to Boothbay, over to Dover, NH, etc. etc.  Kennebunk is a charming little town and so much nicer than the crazy Kennebunkport.  We did get to Portland, the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, a bunch of lighthouses, Alewives Fabrics in Nobleboro, and so on.  I came home with lots of fat quarters, which I'm going to fussy cut (I need my head examined) for a POTC quilt when I finish Whirligig.  I'm such an optimist.  grin.

Breakfast Stitching

Not much this week.  I've been somewhat under the weather.

Breakfast Stitching

A week late, but I just got back from Minneapolis yesterday.  We went to the State Fair on opening day.  Such fun!

More Whirligig  blocks and an entire row joined.

And the new row, photographed in sections since I can't get the entire thing in one picture.

Linking to Kathy's Quilts.  I do love her blog!

Thank you all for your lovely comments!  Breakfast slow stitching continues.

Breakfast Stitching

And here we are again with more Whirligig blocks, all done while eating breakfast with the Hubz.  We eat, chat, and I stitch.  It's quite delicious.

When I finish the above row, I'll have 6 rows done.  Yay!

Slow Stitching

And here we are, again.  3 more blocks and one joined to the quilt top.

I now have 6 rows joined with maybe 4-5 more, plus filling in the crenelations on the edges.  I made start calling this "porch stitching", because that's where I work it.

Bardy's Quilt

Bardy's wife asked me to make a quilt out of his shirts.  He passed away a year ago.  He was my dear friend, and I was one of his opera "dates".  So here are the first two blocks, untrimmed and then trimmed.

These were rotated which is why the trimmed blocks look a bit different from the untrimmed ones.  Not to worry, each set is exactly the same.

Very Slow Stitching.

EPP, the mother of all slow stitching.  Here are this weeks blocks for Whirligig.  Aren't they cute?  Slower than a sloth, but fun to make.

I work on my blocks at breakfast.  The Hubz and I eat breakfast together on our sun porch, and I like to linger over my tea, so doing a bit of handwork, chatting and sipping tea go nicely together.

I have about 30 blocks waiting to be joined.  This week, I attached 2 of them.  The goal is to finish by next July.  Maybe?

Here are the new joinings plus possible blocks to add next.  I"m leaning towards the bottom picture.

I've linked this post to Kathy's Quilts.
