Here is my Double Delight laid out on the kitchen table. I have all the blocks done for the original setting, but the more I look at it, the less I want it put on point and the more I like it straight set. That means, even though the back corner of my table has a pile of blocks that wouldn't fit on the table, there are not enough blocks to straight set it for my bed. So, I need to make more blocks. Not a problem, I still have more of all the fabric. I also want a pieced maple leaf border, so I'll need to make all of those blocks too. I'm looking forward to making all of those, but I have a few projects that should be finished first. Double Delight is going on the back burner for a while. I still plan on finishing it this year, but not right now. This quilt is going to be gorgeous, and it deserves to not be rushed.
My next projects will be a Celtic knot quilt for my SIL to raffle off at her St. Patrick's Day gymnastics meet, and my first grandbaby quilts which I am so excited to make. I've finally chosen patterns for all of those, and I'm going to start cutting them all out tomorrow. I'm going to try to spend some time cutting scraps too, my scrap basket has not been tamed, and it's overflowing into the room. If I can at least get it down enough to stay in the basket, I'll be happy. I'll probably spend the rest of the week cutting, giving me a break from sewing, and getting me all ready few the next few projects.
