The latest re-obsession2

Screw you, Mother Nature. If I have to deal with another month of summer, I’m going make me a quilt in Fall colors.
I’ve always wanted to learn quilting, but it’s one of those HUMONGOUS, time-consuming, tedious crafts that works a lot better when you’ve got a partner. (Like exercise, but…drier.) I have some pattern books and some magazines (1990-something), some fabric, and a fair amount of supplies, but I’ve always lacked the ambition to even get to the finished-quilt-top-in-the-closet stage.
No longer. Alicia’s got the bug and we’re proceeding before we remember how much freaking work goes into these things. True to form, I am probably biting off more than I can chew. Here’s a sample of what will be in my, I hope, full-sized quilt.
In related news, I finally got a couple of Euro pillows and will need to make shams for them out some stash fabric. It’s a Sewingstravaganza around here.
I apologize in advance to any guests who end up with pins stuck in their feet. Those suckers really blend with my carpet…
Nice, you should watch how to make an American Quilt to get you EVEN more in the mood… I don’t know if the mood will be for quilting or hot male side dishes… Either way…
Ha! We did! Also Mona Lisa Smile and a good bit of The Wizard of Oz.
Quilting takes a long time.
