The Craft show

The craft show at Jeff's Shed is on from tomorrow till Sunday.  Must make a list of what I need (and keep to it).  I'm going on Friday.

The baby quilt is progressing steadily.  I'm designing it as I go.  There is a lot of hand work still to do before I put it together.

Thew row by row from 2010 has been added to.  I have been putting  a row of 5" maple leaves, only 2 leaves still to make then I will put it a way for a few weeks and get on with other things.Show

I wonder how many UFOs are too many  There are too many temptations in all the magazines I have,
Just last week I started another large quilt in red and white, snowball pattern.  This is in addition to the Round Robin from 2010 that I pulled out of.   There were only 3 borders around the square I did to start it off.  I decided to make maple leaves but to make them fit I had to add another 1" border... The first side has been sewn on and there are almost enough patches for the next two sides. I can take it to the meeting next Wednesday

 I decided to do another quilt of 2.5" X 5" and use more of my scraps, This has been put aside until I get another project off the design wall..
