Last week, I felt desperate to sew, but every day passed without a stitch. Friday I was leaving for the weekend to visit my mother-in-law and father-in-law. I brought my sewing machine. When we visit, I usually bring something to work on, but I leave my machine at home. The weekend, I had to quilt. I had plenty of time to sew. I feel peaceful.
The top is getting close. I have plans for appliqué vines, leaves, and flowers that will grow up into the yellow panel. I like it the way it is, but it’s about 12” short on the width. I need to think about how I will handle the extra inches.
This quilt is for my friend Leslie, her husband Jonathan, and their son Abraham. I don’t usually share pictures of my quilts till they are finished, but I’m excited for Leslie to see. When I visit them, I feel the love they have for each other, and for their home.
One thought on “Sometimes Life Gets in the Way of Quilting”
In my book it’s come very far in only a few weeks! I hope it isn’t given away before next meeeting, I am intrigued.
