Sewing Like I Was On Retreat!

Well, not really, but more than I normally could get to sew.  My problem is not the time, but finding the time when someone else can keep a eye on McGee.  DiNozzo just lays by me or looks out the window.  McGee eats stuff.  Maybe that will be a positive point of Carrie and Andrew being here.

I decided to get the Chicken Dance as far along as I could.  I will have to deal with the outside borders are sort of wavy.  I need to address that before I go futher on the chickens.  But, I got the center done.  All the chickens, the green behind the chickens, the apples, the vines and the orange behind the vines are done.

After I took the Chickens off, I put one of the baby quilts on and decided to do a close hand drawn straight lines.  Very modern for a very modern quilt. And Carrie actually likes it!

I really like those lines.  The back is a neutral Ecology Cloth which requires a nice hand on the machine stitching!

Nothing finished but the baby quilt is close!

I also put together the Aquatic Challenge for the Fiber group.  Then I found out we were cancelling the meeting in favor of the Slidell GSQA Show.  My Matisse Lady is hanging in that show!

  1. Yes! The lines really off set the chevrons or zig zags nicely - you did your part for international quilting day for sure;-)


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
