I haven't accomplished much over the last 2 days except for these 2 new lap quilt tops. The red in the photo is actually more of a fuschia pink. But the overriding vibrancy is the same. I sure hope some child likes these! I need to make 2 more in this color palette and then I can move on to some blues. These bring my total to 8 (of an estimated 28).
I also spent too many hours getting and setting up my new phone. I have to re-download all of my audiobooks but everything else transferred over. There's just a lot of checking and changing settings. I don't know about you but buying a phone is about as exciting as buying a microwave. It's mostly annoying. Hopefully I can keep from dropping this one and it will last more than 3 years.
There hasn't been anymore quilting on Mom's quilt but I sort of have a plan for finishing it. I decided that I want to do some sort of floral motifs in the green areas but I don't have any experience with freehand florals. Then I received a notification for a new online quilting class by Bethanne Nemesh called Blooming Botanicals. Perfect! I took her feathers class a couple of years ago and it was one of the best classes I have ever taken. For this one I can use some of the lap quilts for practice and then finish off on Mom's quilt. So I'll finish the stars on Mom's quilt and then take it off for a few weeks. I should be able to squeeze in a couple of veterans quilts before I start practicing on the lap quilt.
I'm not sure how much will get done this weekend. We are going to visit a friend in Charlottesville Sunday to watch my Eagles play so I'll only have Saturday to get some things done. But I have the rest of this week and no more phones to set up.
