I continue to work on the selvedge quilt and have the top layered and ready to quilt. I’m thinking of hand quilting parts, adding some buttons to keep help keep it together, and maybe some straight line machine quilting. It is 66×96 inches and very heavy. I do like how it is coming out. Hopefully will have it done within a couple of months.
For the past week, while on vacation up in Rangeley, Maine, I’ve been working on Parts Department blocks. I have a few blocks hand done–hexagon rings on newsprint fabrics. Enjoy doing the handwork in the evenings while watching TV.
Stopped at a couple of quilt shops while in that part of Maine. One in Farmington where I found some very polka dot and orange fabrics that are waiting for a project. In Rangeley, I stopped at the quilt store down the street from our B&B and found some great neutrals and some teal-ish fat quarters that will go well in the Parts Department quilt.
Rangeley is another beautiful part of Maine. We enjoyed several hikes in the area (fairly easy ones), found some surprisingly good restaurants, did a lot of exploring the surrounding area, and had some great breakfasts at the Pleasant Street Inn B&B. Great hosts, very comfortable rooms, delicious breakfasts all week long. I’d go back again anytime!
