Ninety-nine

Ninety-nine nine patch blocks made, so far.  I think I need 209, and a bunch of half-sies to make the quilt I have in mind.  Do you remember Agent 99 from “Get Smart”?  She always was smarter than Maxwell Smart.

I worked on my Farmer’s Wife blocks too.  Two are from last week, and I made four this week.  Only 24 more to go, it seems like the next few are quite simple, there is even a nine patch.

I worked a bit on the chair project.  I needed to strip the legs and arm trim of the old, yellowing finish.  I got some walnut stain for it and hope I can get the wood parts done this week.  I noticed that the some of the springs in the seat are loose and need to be retied.  This poor chair really is getting a total makeover.

I got my Allietare quilt back on the frame, after I finished it I took it off and realized I had a blank spot where I missed a motif.  It should only take about ten minutes of stitching to fix, as always the prep takes longer than the fix.  I think I’m going to quilt the next-up baby quilt (July due date) and then get El Camino back up and finish it.

Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times for Design Wall Monday.

Thanks for following along!

One thought on “Ninety-nine

  1. I loved Get Smart! And I agree… Agent 99 was the brains behind the operation! 😀 Making 9 patch blocks is so relaxing. Your Farmer’s Wife blocks are beautiful.
