OK --- so it's NEVER a good thing when you hear multiple helicopters flying overhead. When I took Murphy out for a walk, they were relatively close to the house. Why does everything happen when I walk her?
So you can't see the helicopters in this photo, but I managed to snap the geese flying overhead!

The largest was 43" by 51", and the smallest was 32" by 37", but it still took time to load and unload, set up the software, advance the quilt, and change the thread. I didn't finish until after dinner.

OH -- back to those quilts. That is the last of the small quilts. There is a box of young adult quilts (about 50" by 60"), and there are many larger quilts for Quilts of Valour, but all the smallish ones are done! At least for the moment, as there will be more in the future. So how many quilts did I do? By my count, there were 41 smaller quilts, and I completed them in 17 days! That's not too shabby in my downtime!
Now, I'm onto some Quilts of Valour quilts, so the clock is reset, and I'll see where I go with those. I do not even have a quilt on the frame this morning, although it's ready to be pressed at 9 AM. I just ran out of steam last night! And I don't have much time left to mess around before I need to get back to serious work! The fall classes start next month, and there is a lot of homework to prep!
Don't forget that tonight is Virtual Retreat. It starts at 6 PM. I can't wait!!! I love company when I sew, but I do not miss packing up the car to get there, especially for just a few hours! The links are in a separate blog post, so watch for those!
Have a super day!!!
