Well, I did not get to the walking foot last night, but I got other stuff done!!!!! I decided on a pattern for the Paddington Bear quilt and got all but the inner border cut. Since the outer border is a real cute print, I am going to wait on the inner border until I can see exactly what it needs to be for the outer border to look right. I am doing a snowball/hourglass layout in a 5 X 5 design with the snowballs making the big X. The snowballs are the Paddington Bears on yellow, fussy cut (obviously :-)) with green corners. The hourglasses are blue and red. I'm not sure which I'll have turned out yet. Whichever one I have turned out so that it touches the inner border will be the other color. So the inner border is either red or blue. The outer border is a Paddington Print from the strip. It is Paddington Bears on light blue. The backing is the yellow Paddington Outline print. I started marking the diagonal line on my green squares that I'm using for the snowball corners, but that's as far as I got.
I also cut and pieced the backing for my mom's quilt.
I also decided to make an I spy quilt for a very special little boy who just turned one and a baby quilt for his little brother who will be coming any day now. I hope to get those done in July and mailed off by the end of July.
Well, that's all for now!
