Day 549 – (AD 1,708) – 23.4 Miles –Jim’s Trek Part V – Mars on My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

I have now passed the 37,000-mile mark.

This morning I pedaled 23.4 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now 37,018.9 miles; 59,576.3 kilometers.

I have plotted a new path and goal destination, Ascraeus Mons. I am now located at 12.00%.

Countdown continues. Only 1,182.7 miles remaining in Jim’s Trek.

Something to think and make sure to do something about –

Christmas Season.

The US of A.

Tear gas.

Mothers and children

Our Cranes Quilts Update -

Quilting is done on the "almost" last Cranes Quilt of the Blue Set. The quilting on this Cranes Quilt was completed free-motion on our Janome 6600.

6 does not divide evenly into 40 evenly, so Andy and I will be creating the last 4 Cranes Quilts with batik fabric colors that are unique but will fit into one or more of the 6 color sets.

Answers -

1. Yes, there are holes in some of our Crane Quilts.

2. Our reasoning for the holes is...

3. Our Crane blocks are composed of 4 different sizes: 3"; 4"; 5"; and 6".

4. Yes, the Crane blocks are not paper-pieced.

5. The Cranes Spectrum quilts are all composed of lots of different batik shades of the 3 primary and 3 secondary colors.

Our Hope - Cranes Quilts - Project will premiere in January in Clearwater. Stay-tuned for updates.
