It was nice to get back to the sewing machine and longarm today. In the morning I got half of the remaining blocks stitched this far and should get the rest sewn today so that I can cut and trim them during football tonight.
Then the Starlink installer came and we decided on where/how it's going to be installed on the house.
In the afternoon I reloaded the raffle quilt and started the quilting. I want to do a nice job of quilting but I have to keep 2 things in mind. One, the quilting isn't really going to show, except on the back. Second, it's a raffle quilt that is intended to be a bed quilt so I can't overquilt it.
I started with the 6 Courthouse Steps blocks and decided on a feathered wreath.
Next I'll tackle the 12 star quilts. I'm thinking some continuous curves and some sort of filler in the background.
One other thing I do is that I usually have a puzzle going. I just like working on one while I eat breakfast or as a break from crocheting in the evening. None of them are really special, except for this one. This is one of the coolest puzzles I've ever worked.
This is what's cool about it. All of the big puzzle pieces are separate puzzles! I've never seen a puzzle like this. You can get one for yourself at Barnes and Noble. It's called Gradient Cascade.
