I’m calling it Point A to Point B quilt top, not only because of the obvious, but changing directions is my usual mode of operation (or mode of procrastination).
I won’t even bother to show you were I started, but will say it stunk and I had to move forward or backward depending on how you look at it. Some triangles were saved and others scrapped. The verb “scrapped’ may be my new favorite.
My next point is I have a new class sample for my Improvisational Elongated Triangle Block Class.
This is good news, except I was really needing to get to work on this Magic Number quilt displayed with sleepy Jefe and TV transfixed small child as a sample for my Magic Number workshop that is offered first (a new coin quilt class sample wouldn’t hurt either). As I’ve said, I sew much faster in my head than in real life. There is still time I hope. For now envision it all pieced and surrounded by that lipstick solid fabric.
Now hold that vision, because I need to get this pieced for Krista into some Osnaburg fabric background by Friday. This quilt was the original reason for the making of the first quilt and procrastinating the second quilt and so on. Thank goodness for procrastination or all that collaborating about fabric, quilting other quilts, drinking beer and laughing with Krista might never have happened.
Oh, and look what she sent me yesterday. Drool.
