Blogging break over!

Guess I took a blogging break!  Nearly six months since my last post!  Yikes! 

During this time of staying home, I figured it was time to check in and see if all is well with you.  

I am doing ok and sewing away, organizing scraps, basting quilts and quilting up a few.  I am trying not to start any new large projects until I get a few more quilted and off the UFO list.

Here is one that I finished up today with no one in particular in mind as of yet. A great way to use up a  layer cake from a few years ago.  I threw out the label so I don't remember which line or designer these squares are from.   I separated the layer cake into blues/greens for the front and gold/orange/brown for the back, added the 10" grey squares for a simple design. Took a while to get everything to line up during basting so that the back was in synch with the front or at least close. A reversible quilt.   
55" x 65"

lol  a blue one escaped from the front!

I free motion quilted with a zigzaggy weave design.  I used a variegated light to dark grey Aurifil colour number 4670 in 40wt. 

Not my favourite quilt or my best job but I did use up the layer cake that was kicking around for a few years.  I am trying to use up stuff while we are staying at home for who knows how long. 

Take care of yourself and those around you.
