I've had a fastination with two-color quilts since I started quilting. I've made two-color quilts, but they've been scrappy. I really want to make a two-fabric quilt!
This quilt was hanging at Road to California. I've looked through that $1 program (which, incidentally, they were giving away free on Sunday!) and I can't find which quilt this might be to give credit to the quiltmaker. If he/she reads this blog, I just want them to know I think it is stunning!
Turquoise is my new favorite color, and the quilting on this quilt was awesome. Hmmmm.....
I have a question for the blog ring. Do you wash your fabrics before cutting a quilt or not? Sometimes I do; sometimes I don't. Just wondering what you all do. I'm procrastinating big time on this quilt for the boss. Those oodles of yards are just sitting on the cutting table. I'm having a hard enough time making myself cut - I can't even imagine ironing all that fabric. (sigh) Tell me what to do. I'm putty in your hands tonight!
Because I'm tired. This weekend really did me in. I realized today that I'm no spring chicken. At 55, I guess I'm an autumn chick?
Yesterday and today were tough days emotionally, too. Mom's 92nd birthday would have been yesterday, and today is the 22nd anniversary of her death. I've been thinking about her all week, and just plain miss her.
I talked to my brother today. They are in their house! Hooray! Don said they're still doing finishing work inside -- they have baseboards and crown molding to put up in the bedrooms, and one bathroom countertop is not in yet. But all the new furniture was delivered on Monday, and they decided just to move in with the new furniture. It's been five months since their house burned. I think this rebuilt has been remarkably fast, but it sure doesn't seem that way to them! I'm hoping that once the construction folks are out of there, that they will be able to relax a little and enjoy life again. They surely deserve a little quiet time now. I'm hoping to get down there in late spring or early summer. But I was ordered to bring a quilt for my bedroom! They're waiting to decorate that guest room around the quilt! LOL!
