Batting is Here...

The only thing I have to show for machine quilting progress yesterday is a bag of batting - I bought the batting. Unfortunately, that's all I did on it. But during the rest of the week I hope to start basting Bliss so it will be ready to go under the machine on Monday. Progress is progress, right?

I did finish this Farmer's Daughter block last night.

And since I went on and on about pressing it and twirling seams yesterday, I going to show you the back, too! I'm so enamored with how flat it is! I think this is block number 12.

Last night I cut out the pieces for the next block - this one has blues and browns.

Last week I went out to lunch at a local restaurant and ordered my favorite salad - Blueberry Feta Salad. Of course, my luck, they didn't get their blueberries or feta cheese in that day. I've been thinking about that salad every single day since. UPDATE: I forgot about the almonds! Add whole almonds, also!!!

So I decided there was no reason why I could make on at home. It's simply mixed greens, thinly sliced red onion, blueberries, feta cheese, and poppyseed dressing. I found some 'lite' poppyseed dressing at the grocery store. And I added a bit of chicken on top, too. YUM! Hubby said it's the best salad he's ever eaten. This was dinner a couple of nights ago.

Today is dresden day! Let's see how many I can make! Let's go SEW!


  1. Always enjoy seeing your progress on your work! Now look forward to seeing these blocks all go together into a wonderful quilt!!

  2. It does look yummy. Is there a pattern for your Farmer's Daughter or are you designing it as you go? Looks like a Kingwell pattern to me. Love your fabrics.
