Having Productive Day

Yesterday was a very productive day for me and the installers had most of the kitchen floor in and today they are finishing it up. I am so pleased with how it looks. But it sounds like it will be next weekend before the whole project is completed, that's hardwood and carpet.

Now I was able to do 2 quarter sections of the center portion of The Words to Live By

and now I'm working on another.

Yesterday I was able to complete the last 2 Farmer's Wife blocks.
So tonight at the 30's Club meeting they'll have more blocks for me. You see I'm the tester, making sure there is enough fabric and that directions are correct which makes me few months ahead of the group.

I plan on taking the I Spy quilts as Show and Tell tonight... can't think of anything else.

The leader and ender I mentioned the other day and had no ideal what I was going to do.....well I do now. The other day while looking on Facebook I came across this post on one of the group I joined and someone was looking for the name of this pattern.
I knew the minute I saw it this is what I'll use all the 9 patches I'm making

There was a comment by someone naming the quilt.
It's design by Primitive Gatherings (by the way who design the Words to Live By I'm working on) called Settler's Trail.
I was going to order the pattern until I found out the 9 patches finish out to 1 1/2"  half the size of what mine will turn. It would do me no good cause all of the fabric requirement would not work or the size of all the pieces. 
It would show me how to assemble but I think I can come up with something close to it on my own. Wish my strips were smaller, would make it so much easier.

Right now for the leader and enders...... it's sewing the strips together and this is what I have so far. 

Have a good pile of strips and 2 1/2 yards of the background fabric but I'm thinking it is going to take a lot more of the background. 
Tonight while at Sager Creek I'll check to see if they have any. I hope so and maybe they will cause that is where all of this fabric came from originally, repurposing a BOM they had.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
