So I cleaned up the kitchen really fast, took my shower, and got Layn started with his trains. Then I sat down to the machine and the above picture is part of yesterday's results. I love the colors and the pattern but the results are not up to my usual form. My iron broke and I can't get a new one right yet. Without steam it is hard to get everything to come out nice and square and smooth. But it is bright and cheerful which is what I was trying to achieve. This quilt is going to a young lady who has started college this fall far from home. I really think that she is in need of some cheerful colors and a friendly reminder of the love that is going her way.
Later I will post a pic of the other quilt that I started as well. It has a chicken theme and is a bit more intricate. My daughter is the chicken lover and I have been collecting and saving chicken prints for years now in preparation for building this quilt for her.
But, today it is back to academics which means I can only look up and gaze at my work from afar. On second thought, maybe I can get done early and spend some more quality time with my sewing machine.
