Thursday Weather Report #208 - 5/13/21

Can you believe that this week marks the fourth anniversary of my Weather Reports? 
I can't either! 

I'd like to say that I took (found?) the time to catch up on my temperature hexies but I didn't. 
Instead I've been stitching like a mad woman on a test project I'm doing for an online friend.

 Kerri had PaperPieces produce the papers and then asked on Instagram for anyone that wanted to test them. I had never tested a pattern of any type so I quickly raised my hand without thinking of all the other deadlines I had looming. Our deadline was May 1st but that, luckily, got bumped to 5/15 and I am expecting it to get bumped again due to production delays and pattern changes. 

Each tester was given enough papers to make 4 "blocks." Some of the testers made blocks and appliqued them on backgrounds but I saw the opportunity to tessellate the blocks together and ran with it to make a doll quilt. I changed my layout at least 3 times - I'm such a slow "designer" as I like to let a project speak to me as I work on each part, about what to do next. I'm currently confident that I'll be able to finish the top by this weekend so I can catch up on some other projects before I work on quilting it next week.
