Tuesdays are Just For Me

Few words today.
Fewer minutes to spare.
Sadly, becoming the norm.
One more corner of leaves done. Seven hours spent. Phew! How long will 120 grapes take? Ha!
One more border added. Mostly square. Mostly flat. OK, kinda flat (like a bra). Seeking quilting ideas from any and all. Two borders left.
Customer deadline. Too many technical issues - ie., stitches not present! Not a good thing. Lots of lessons remembered from my last log cabin quilt stitched on the diagonal. Message to self: remember these learnings! Diagonal quilting takes forever...too many stops & starts. Plus, all the different colors make doing feathers really hard/slow because the thread doesn't match but one fabric well. Should be done at end of week. With a little luck. OK, a lot of luck.
...been daydreaming about my next quilt "Seaglass". Typical of me to be onto the next project when two others are 60 pieced!

Beautiful work. I especially admire the Italian floor tile quilt. So much eye candy on your blog. Hope you have more time for what you love.
