I didn't do a lot of making yesterday because I was finally back in the dye studio. A month away was a good break and it took a minutes to shake off some cobwebs in my process. But I have 5 gradients processing to add to the shop next week. No new designs in this batch but I'll have some new ones soon.
I have gotten in a little sewing the last 2 days and I got that little curved gold piece added to 16 blocks. It may not look like much but Quiltworks patterns have very specific steps and adding curved pieces is a multi-step process. But their process works so I follow it. Next I'll work on the pieces that go in that "V" space. They have a curved vein on them too just like the ones at the center point of the stars. Soon I'll be ready to put the center of the quilt together and start on the borders. This is moving along faster than I anticipated mostly because I'm really enjoying working on it.
Today's progress will depend on my luck at the SSA office today. Fingers crossed!

you probably need that break every year - you do a long of work with fabric!

This is looking great! Hope you don't get too bogged down at the SSA office. Dealing with bureaucracy is no fun.

There is no way I would ever tackle making that quilt because I know I'd be tearing my hair out to say nothing about the colour of the surrounding air. It's going to be a showpiece (heck, it already is!)

Welcome back to "the real world" Vicki. The dyeing process always fascinates me.
