I've been wanting to make a blue and white quilt - blue, but leaning toward navy. When I saw Bonnie Hunter's new pattern, Winter Blues, I thought it would fit the bill. I have a love/hate relationship with Bonnie Hunter quilts. The pieces are so SMALL! But in the end, I always love these quilts. My favorite quilt I finished in 2020 is Pfeffernusse. Lots of tiny pieces. But all those seam allowances make for a nice, heavy quilt which I find comforting.
So what you see above is the start I made today at cutting the pieces. I pulled out all my blues that I thought would work and began to cut 1.5" strips. I have a bit more cutting to do. And yes, I did order a bit more navy fabric from Whittles Fabric today, but just a few pieces.
I had a wonderful walk this morning - 2.2 miles! I try to go a bit further each day as long as my feet are cooperating. You know I had a bad fall several years ago and tore up the ligaments in my right foot. Sometimes that foot or ankle 'talks to me,' and not in a good way. My new shoes came this afternoon and I love them. I have also ordered an ankle sleeve for more support, too. It should be here soon.
If anything hurts, I stop. And I might take a day or two off from walking. But I've mostly been fine. My new Apple Watch? I LOVE, LOVE it! It keeps me motivated! I love the way I've been feeling since I've increased my walking. My blood pressure is still a bit high, but my doctor will help me with that.
That's it from here.
