Midweek: it's a flimsy!

 I assembled On Ringo Lake on Tuesday afternoon.  I calculated the fabric required in each unit and from that arrived at 10 yards for the entire flimsy (unquilted top). Hooray!













I got the leftover fabric reshelved.










Last evening we watched Into the Amazon, the new episode of The American Experience on PBS.  (Until the promotion of this feature I'd forgotten that in 1993 Auburn PL had hosted a program by Charles Haskell who led an expedition to retrace T.R.'s route.)    My TV-time sewing resulted in six NYB blocks for the guild challenge quilt. I decided that split backgrounds are more interesting than not-split.


Mike from Tracey's Tables called Monday to say that he'll deliver the new top for my sewing table this morning. The Janome has a much larger footprint than the Pfaff and the new top will allow the machine to be flush with the table. It will be nice to sew "on the flat" again.

  4. What size did it come out as? There isn't a finished size on the Pages I printed. I like the colors together much better than I thought I would. Congrats on the flimsy.

  7. Wow, Nann! Your ORL look fantastic! It sure feels like I've sewed 10 yards of fabric (hahaha) and I haven't got everything together yet!

  10. Congrats on getting the On Ringo Lake put together. Is there a border to come? I didn't play along. I still have at least one mystery still to do.
