Where did the week go???

I can't believe today is Thursday already, where did the week go?? Sorry I have no pictures to share this week so far.

I ended up keeping my grandkids overnight on Easter Sunday so I spent Monday with them also.

Tuesday I spent rinsing fabric and ironing I ran out of fabric to dye and have 400 more yards on order. Wednesday I took a class, we made the BQ quilt. I got all 12 of my blocks made and now to put them together. I did get my fabric yesterday so I can get back to dyeing. Today I have guild so this afternoon I will start scouring my fabric and while I do that I will finish my top from yesterday. Maybe later today I'll be able to share a picture of the BQ quilt top. Then it will go into my to quilt pile. I hope soon I can get back to getting some tops quilted but that doesn't look like I'll get back to that until May with the 3 shows and a class with Carol Soderlund coming up.

  1. I tend to scour my material unless I'm desperate. It seems to me that when I soak the unscoured fabric in the soda ash water more sediment comes off it. I know that the material is PFD but I've had a few instances where I've had a spot or too that didn't look right plus as you say washing helps to pre-shrink the fabric before it's torn into 1 yard strips.
