I have no picture to share today, as my camera batteries need recharging. I took a picture today, but now the camera says that the card needs formatting. But if I do that I'll lose what's on the card. Usually when it says that, actually the batteries just need a charge.
So, anyway, I've been busy lately getting some things finished. A few days ago, I figured out what I wanted the back to look like for the "Diamonds in the Dirt" quilt top, so I got that completely pieced. Very happy with it, but will wait to share it when the quilt is finished. I don't know if I want to hand or machine-quilt it, so I don't know whether I want polyester or cotton/poly batting.
Today, I pulled out the Japanese X and Plus top and added a border to it. For me, the quilt top was just TOO BUSY, and yet my hubby LOVES it ! I feel like the border helps contain the chaos just a bit. Both this, and the top mentioned earlier, measure around 56 x 80 inches. They'll top a full-sized bed, but are really extra-big nap quilts. I told hubby that with health changes and sleeping in recliners and on couches, maybe it's a smart thing to have some of this size quilt around nowadays !
Next thing I want to accomplish is getting a back together for the x and + top. I bought a beautiful Valori Wells print for my scrappy tripalong top, but I don't really like that one nor want to finish it, so I may borrow that fabric for this top.
Tomorrow is my middle grandchild's birthday. Timothy Daniel, Jr. will be 8 years old. I have missed so much ! I love that little guy, he has the sweetest heart.
