Lines, frogs, princes and blocks

Oh yes, I finished four more rows of quilting the brown and look, you can't see a thing in the picture.  Kindof explains why I will have to also quilt the green. 

What I really like about quilting the brown is that it provides terrific structure to the quilt.  And boy is this quilt stabilized.

What I don't like is that you cannot see a bit of stitching in the picture.  I hope you will be able to in real life.

I turned the rollers and I have the quilt in position for the final four rows of quilting the brown.

Then I will roll it back up to the top and start quilting the green squares. 
First I will fill some bobbins.
Then I may file my nails, possibly shampoo my hair.
Cause I don't know STILL how I am going to quilt those green squares.
It will come to will.


In the meantime, I am working on the Hot for Chocolate quilts. 
Progress so far:
All the 2 7/8" squares are cut
All the 2 1/2" pink/red strips are cut and sewn together
Things to do before I can start making blocks:
Draw a diagonal pencil line on each 2 7/8" square (BORING!)
Cut five brown strips from each quilt into 2 1"2 strips
        then into squares
Cut the pink/red into 2 1/2" slices
Sew the brown and pink 2 7/8" squares together

I like the cutting and the sewing of the fabrics but drawing those lines, phew, that makes me want to hire a line drawer.  (Anyone interested?  Lousy pay but you get to spend time with yours truly.  Snacks will be provided)

I have to do the boring parts to get to the cool parts, like all of life.  My Mom used to say, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you get to the Prince.  And I did, I got to my Prince and soon I will get to sew the heart blocks.
