Progress Made on Jezebel's Quilt Top
I've been working on Jezebel's quilt and was bound and determined to get it assembled this weekend. "On Point" quilts tend to swarm on me and while I like the way sashing looks, I don't really like doing them because I get lost in where the cornerstones go. I've had MUCH better luck lining up the seams since I discovered glue stick.
Here are a couple of pictures of the Jezebel's quilt top before the border is put on it:
I only cried once this afternoon. Jezebel was always right there quilting with me unless Husband was mowing the lawn - in that event, she'd stand out waiting for him to trudge by and pet her. Then, she used to change positions so that she'd be waiting for another pet when he made his next turn. And so on. Oh, what a dog!
Evelyn didn't show up until after the top was nearly done but that's okay. Here she is:
Here are a few of the individual blocks:
Here are just a few pictures of my girl:
Here are a couple of fabrics I am auditioning for the border:
It has been a mellow day. I made lasagne and Husband made sausage balls and baked beans for his office's Christmas potluck. We've been beaming about the new puppies and just hanging out.
Then I looked out the window.
The across-the-street neighbors, who I really like, have erected an inflated Santa in their front yard that looks like it is tall enough to peer into their second story window. It is awful. They have darling white christmas lights all twinkling in their shrubbery but you can't see them because they are behind Inflated Santa's big butt.
So now, I have closed the blinds and am having a glass of red wine.
