I finished the top of this mini, Honeycomb, by Kim Diehl. As I told you in a recent post, I won the pattern from Janet. This is one of those things helping me to keep busy! It is very much outside my regular style of quilts, but it was interesting to do. The hardest part was digging through my fabrics for all the different pieces. Then I followed Kim Diehl's method of machine quilting with clear thread. I wanted to do the borders with a similar chartreuse fabric, which I didn't have. So I went online to look for some and I found the exact same fabric that Kim used for the borders, although I'm not sure it is the same color. I used something different for the inner skinny border and corners.
Sunday didn't lift my spirits at all because of having church on line, which is very weird. Plus not being able to have DS & DGS over for dinner. After DH & I ate, I texted DS to see if we could do FaceTime at least. He responded: we're on our way! So we decided we would just sit on the patio and visit, which we did. They brought me some tulips from their garden and DGS painted some egg shells for me for easter.
That made the day much better!
We finished another puzzle called "Opera Cats."
I also got this Jo Morton design almost finished - "Nine Patch Chain. I need to put a border on it but haven't decided exactly what I will do for that.
I hope you are all doing well and that we will be able to be released from custody soon! Ha Ha!
