Really Random Thursday

This may almost seem like a repeat of yesterday's post, but there has been progress on all fronts....


....geometric overall quilting going so much easier than I expected.  Why do I worry so much???  One bobbin down, and at this rate about 6 more bobbins to go!


And two broken herringbone bee blocks completely finished.  I really like how the skinny white sashing strips really helps random fabrics to actually work together fairly well, when at first I wasn't feeling too confident about the prints I had gathered together from my scraps.  By the way, if you haven't made this block before it is a GREAT tutorial.  Lots and lots of photos, which really helped me a lot. 

I'm feeling a bit run down with a cold today but looking forward to a long weekend, with parent/teacher conferences meaning no school tomorrow, plus Remembrance Day holiday on Monday and no school Tuesday.  I'm really looking forward to it!

The quilting is looking fabulous, Heather! Enjoy your long weekend - we had a 5 day on Thanksgiving weekend, it was great. My first grader has a primary holiday tomorrow but my oldest three are still in. She is so looking forward to it, and so am I. :-)

The quilting's coming along great!! And for some reason, that geometric pattern is really awesome if you have a big quilt and a narrow-throated machine... It's quite forgiving if you have to wrestle with the fabric a bit.
