I thought it was time to check in. There isn't much happening here. I do have the rest of the blocks made for Easy Breezy. I need to add sashing and sew them together.

I finished Basket Weave Strings a few days ago using Bonnie Hunter's Basket-weave-strings pattern.
This donation quilt is 58" by 66". The strings are all from my string scrap bin which is still overflowing.
I quilted the edges with a loop in each setting triangle and straight lines in the border.
The backing is from my stash.
Black/White with Red. Both have been added to the growing pile of tops waiting to be sandwiched and quilted
Easy Breezy is half done! I sewed fifty 4 1/2" blocks together. When the other 50 blocks are finished, I'll add them.
We enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving by ourselves. We are hopeful that we'll be able to be around some family at Christmas time.
Update on my back: Physical Therapy has ended for the time being - the tests showed that I wasn't making progress; in fact, my mobility was regressing. The first spinal injection was painful and didn't help. I'm hoping to skip the second spinal injection and just progress to the next doctor. We'll see...

Irish Chain with Solids is slowly being quilted. I'm quilting it as I follow Angela Walters' "Quilting with Rulers Challenge".
I continue working on projects and finished the top Basket Weave Strings. I decided to use a teal grunge for the background.
First I took my new color wheel (I've never actually owned one before.) and pulled some fabrics from my stash.

I have 5 quilts in the to-be-quilted pile:
Irish Chain with Solids has a red border.
Magic Star now has a white border, added since this photo.
I purchased a kit for a small flannel quilt a few years ago at a shop going out of business. Pink Puppies was fast to put together.
I began making some monochromatic string squares a while back, using four squares in a block. This past week, I made more squares and put the blocks together. Colored Strings is a finished quilt top.
Missouri Star Quilt Company's Rhombus Gemstones was fun to make. I used a Grunge jelly roll, Bella white, and MSQC's rhombus large template.
I have three quilts that are long term projects - they have small pieces. I'm making a dent in the tiny scrap bin!
Little Squares is still in progress.
There is Easy Breezy that I think I called Easy Peasy before. I have about 30 blocks done.
I began Aspen which was inspired by Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts.
I'm also making a dent in slightly larger scraps. I started another Bonnie Hunter design, Basket Weave Strings, a few days ago.
I've been playing with Missouri Star's Circle Magic. I have a few 'blocks' finished.
I am still working with Christina Cameli's Pathway. Instead of the pillow that she demonstrated in the class, I am using the technique in a quilt.
I've also been knitting. I'm making Michelle Hunter's Building Blocks afghan and hoping to learn things along the way.
I also began a sweater for me - Petite Knit's Anker's Sweater.
And what would life be like without more masks?
Right now, I am enjoying making more than finishing so that's what I'll do! Who knows - there might be more starts before anything gets finished. A new pattern book is arriving today!
Note: Blogger still seems to have issues with font sizes so it is what it is.
