The Meaning of Life

Hah! Sucked you in with that title, did I?

I got busy working on Celtic Solstice today. The pattern is written for either a king-sized quilt, or a 72" x 72". Neither size is what I can really use, so Linda Franz of Inklingo helped me determine how many units I need to make it a queen-sized quilt. I need 81 squares, 9 x 9. So I printed extra pieces. 
Here are some of the units I put together. I can't believe how well they go together with Inklingo! As long as I follow directions (lol), they fit just fine.
I'm getting excited to see it moving along. I can't say enough good things about Inklingo.

I also worked on my Superior University lesson. This one was with Razzle Dazzle thread and Annies Soft and Stable batting. I'm looking forward to progressing in these lesson plans. This lesson was mug rugs.



On another note, I got my teeth cleaned today. See how sparkling they are?? I'm smiling at you! Smile back, please. Anyhow, I have to get a root canal. Not looking forward to this one! Sigh...

Oh dear! Root canal therapy! I had that early last year, and then had to have the tooth out anyway and a crown fitted. One very expensive tooth. Hope all goes well for you.

Don't you just love friends who can (and will) resize patterns for you? I do. They are the best. Love your blocks. This will make a stunning quilt.

Good luck with Celtic Solstice. I'm glad you got your fabric printed; I'm sure it makes the sewing a whole lot easier.
