Stutter...stutter....stall...

Well, I big plans to finish quilting Ocean View etc...
I started out really well...
Then, I ran out of thread!
Well, cr#%*
So, onto the back burner it goes again for a couple of weeks until more thread arrives.
All is not lost though...
I do have a couple of finished blocks for Sew Out Loud QAL.
This one used a lot of tiny pieces!!
I tried some FMQ writing....not so great....I was going to pick it out, but, now I think I'll just re-do that side panel instead. It will be much less time consuming I think.
I also decided to stop making blocks for Path to Tallahassee and finally put the darn thing together!!
Here is the completed top. Sheriti is not part of the Quilt!!
It is made up of Tallahassee blocks and Retro flower blocks.
It measures 56"x63".
Kind of an odd measurement.
I decided sometime during the night to take the extra block apart and add it to the corners!!
It leaves a lot of white space, but I don't mind that.
No plans yet on how I will quilt it...maybe just straight lines.
I used mostly reproduction 1930's fabric and all the white is linen.
 It's pouring rain, so time to get ready and go out for our weekly lunch meet-up!
Hope you all are having a great week-end.

when I read the title I bought one of your kitties had decided enough was enough and sabotaged your sewing machine!
Path to Tallahassee looks awesome, modern and vintage at the same time, obviously Sheriti appreciates this look too :)
