Due to circumstances beyond my control, I was not able to go to the quilt show with the girls. Very Sad 🙁

But it did have some good consequences! One – DH must have felt bad for me not being able to go, because he kept very quiet about all the time I spent on quilting. AND he even took me out to dinner AND was willing to go to Olive Garden – even though he doesn’t really like that particular restaurant!!! So, even though I didn’t get to spend time with Bev and Barb and I missed them terribly, I did have a nice day.

I was able to get all the strip sets sub-cut, sewn into 9 patches and all the 9 patches cut into quarters.

Maybe this evening I will be able to start sewing the quarters into the finished blocks. Then I’ll need to clear my design wall and start laying out the blocks into a quilt top. Yippee!!

Oh, I almost forgot, DH also stopped at the BOOKSTORE (!!!!) after eating at Olive Garden. WITHOUT COMPLAINING!!! Just so that I could get the next issue of McCall’s Quilting which has the final steps for the mystery quilt!! And, Hooray, I like the finished quilt that they have pictured in the magazine. So after I finish the DNP quilt top, I can get my two mystery quilts finished!! Well, the tops anyway!!

I’m so excited!! But then, I am easily entertained!!
