Hi! I painted the last folding chair blue over the weekend. It was bothering me not having it done so I took 10 minutes and made it pretty. My middle child graduated high school yesterday and today is his birthday…….and he had to get up and go to work. He’s really excited to be done with high school and entering the “real” world. I give it a year or two. My oldest, who isn’t quite 21, just told me how now he realizes how easy it was in high school. I think there may have been an “I should have listened to you” in there but I didn’t say, “I told you so.” Good Mom. It’s been an exciting week around here and I can finally sit down and relax.
Today, I want to show you a quilt project that I’ve been working on slowly. I think that’s how I work on everything though. It’s for my cousin Danielle and I’ve been collecting fat quarters of fabric for over a year now. Back in April, I cut them up into all the proper sized squares and took them to a friend’s house to lay them out. (Ha ha! That’s as far as I’ve gotten!) Neither of us has a design wall, but she does have a design floor. Neither of us was tall enough, or maybe the ceiling wasn’t high enough, to get a full picture of it. I did manage to get it in sections though. Not bad, considering I was standing on a chair holding the camera up over my head and had no idea what was in the frame.
I chose purple and green because those are her favorite colors. As you can see, it’s a four patch pattern with larger squares in between. It was a bit challenging to get it to look random and not have too much of one color or pattern stuck together, but we did it! Now I just have to sew it up, quilt it, and bind it. I should be done by next year at this time.
I also have another quilt that I’ve been slowly working on that is batik flowers. I’ll dig that out for show and tell next week. I have about 6 weeks to finish that one or I’m dead meat. It’s a surprise so I can’t say any more, but I can give sneak peaks of parts of it.
Thanks for visiting!
Have a Creative Day!
