Euro Cup Challenge


Since I am plopped on the couch all day anyway watching the games I am determined to get the big center blocks of the squares quilt done before the tournament is over and the Tour de France begins. I have four more to do. 

I did have a scary moment with the marking pens this week. I forgot to iron the marks out and left them in for a few days. I was worried they wouldn't iron out but they did. Whew...that would have been terrible. It still feels wrong to use a pen to mark up your quilt but so far these pens have been great. I'll never go back to chalk. 

I usually work on the table in the sewing room but I have to say curling up on the couch in front of the TV makes this project much more fun. So much fun that I find myself wondering if there is something else in the orphaned top pile that could use some hand quilting when this one is done. 


  1. I wish I had time to curl up in my recliner and knit/crochet but unpacking is tkaing most of our time anymore. I'm seeing the ligt at the end of the tunnel.

  2. Sometimes working in front of the tv is the best. I know I'd never get a quilt bound if I didn't have TV

  3. Euro cup challenge huh. My husband just tried to torture me telling me a golf tournament (OPEN) will start coverage today. Oh Please

  4. It sure is a great hand quilting design-the results will be great! I love the pens , too, but it is scary to use them! lol
