Scrappy Quilt – Neutral Background – Day 4
Yesterday was Saturday, and I wanted to let my daughter sleep in a bit. So, I ended up doing the dishes and baking some muffins. Her bedroom is right next to my sewing area.
Eventually, I did get my neutral strips sewn together and cross cut into 2.5″ sets.
And considered making some revisions to my plans…
And did some unsewing…
I did not feel like I had made much progress, but today I awoke determined not to feel discouraged. By the time I returned from church, I had a mental image of EXACTLY how this quilt would be when finished. I returned to my grid paper and solidified the plan! Just got started in the sewing room….
When in walks my son, Russell. He is the guy I rely on for decisions concerning colours and design. I can always trust him to give me a worthy second opinion. But today it was different….
You see the light green shoe box to the right of Janome? This is Russell’s quilt box – a project he started soon after I got my machine and it has been waiting for a time when Russell was ready to continue the work and I was willing to give him some time on the machine!
So here we are in the quilting hallway… Russell has five rows of 12 – 5″ finished squares together and three more rows ready to go. He was wanting a break after that…. Agreed he wanted some pics taken and be in a blog post…. And now he says he wants the computer!!!!!!!!!!!!! The nerve…
Sew I’m outa here and getting back to Janome before Russell changes his mind!!!!!!!
