On Monday, I loaded up my car with two quilt tops and drove happily to see Rose, my wonderful long-armer!! As I drove to her house, I realized what a sense of relief I had. I know that without her help, I would not be able to finish my book project by early 2015. In fact, I might not have undertaken this project at all!
The fact is that I really don't enjoy quilting nearly as much as I enjoy the designing and piecing. I LOVE seeing what other people can do when they quilt with stitch and thread....but it isn't a process that speaks very strongly to me.
So, I was thrilled to drop off two new projects AND pick up the two finished projects shown here on the bed in my guest room. I love her handguided quilting. The pattern she used fits with the overall block pattern. One fo these quits will be in my book on patriotic modern quilts.
And then....I was in my sewing room, getting ready to work on the next quilt, when I noticed a large ZipLoc bag next to my pile of strips. What's in this bag, I wondered? More scraps? Ummm....no...it was my THIRD finished top!!
I had totally forgotten that I had a 3rd project for dearest Rose.......OK--I'm really working fast. I think it's because I am totally committed to this project and the excitement of designing quilts for it is so energizing. So here's another peek at the next top that I'll take to Rose...
I'm working hard! And the ideas just keep on flowing. But maybe I need just a bit more organization......
Happy Modern Quilting!!
