Cloudy day

But thankfully no rain in the forecast. As I was walking back from my 6 am walk this morning, the only traffic the waste collection team, I reminded myself how fortunate I am to live in a town where I can go for a morning walk safely. (It’ll be even better when the sun is up before 6.)

I finished another corner of the quilt after work. You can see that the maker ripped, instead of cut, the sashing strips. You can also see that my backtracking on some of the feathers isn’t perfect. I’m ok with that. Like Angela Walters says, finished is better than perfect.

Thanks to a fairly dry training session, I also tidied the bed in the spare room/office and laid out my Grassy Creek blocks. I will get them pinned today. Both of these projects are on my Q2 Finish-a-Long list. Linking up to Chris Knits for Tuesday To-Do.


  1. I love 6 am walks! (except for the time!) – it’s so pieceful; the birds are starting their day with their chirping, and there’s almost no traffic.
    I love the colours you chose for Bonnie’s mystery!

    1. Thank you, it’s nice to know that you and I can walk virtually together 🙂

    Your feathers are gorgeous!

    1. Thank you so much! Practice is definitely the key.

  3. Lovely feathers, I WISH I could do them that well. Your GC block colors are wonderful!

    1. Feathers … well, I’ve practiced a lot. They look best when there is a smooth curve and the end of the plume is slightly bigger than a quarter. And also the 4-5″ width of space was just right. I suggest that if you are doing an all over design in a quilt with matching thread, add a couple of feathers for practice.
