On Saturday morning I woke up early and escaped to the studio. To find this......
Trees, puppy beds, dog food--all piled in front of the design wall. First things first, moved out the trees, tossed away the puppy beds, and hauled the sack of dog food to Richard's shed. Now that's much better.
I'd left a mess on the sewing table, as well. This mess is all mine. On Friday evening I started working on a small quilt using the 2 1/2 inch squares that I'd picked up while at QuiltCon in Austin. These are simple little blocks with straight lines that zip together quickly.
In no time I had a nice pile of sewn blocks sitting on the ironing board. I quickly pressed them and began sticking them to the design wall.
Sunday afternoon, while the kids played and ran around, I loaded the quilt top on the long arm. By the time the rain started and everyone left, I was well into the quilting. I decided to have a little fun with some hearts and scrolls on the large white squares and smaller hearts on the small white pieces.
It still needs binding, but it's off the long arm and at about 60 X 60, it's a perfect size for cuddling.
