I didn’t explain as much as I should have yesterday about this quilt. I really want to try this with leftover strips – I think it would be great. I used a collection of fabric called Color Parade from many many years ago. Can anybody date this?
The cutting for this quilt works perfectly with a layer cake! So many of us have layer cakes in our fabric collections because, like charm packs, they’re just so fun to buy and then imagine what we’ll make with them. Right?
Here’s a close up of the blocks.
And just to be very transparent – I had lots of this sewn last summer and sewed the blocks together last fall. Then I had trouble with the longarm so it didn’t get quilted until this past week. You think you have lots of UFO’s! Now I need to move on to my black project for the month of December. Is anybody else joining me?
Jo asked about our Christmas cantata at church – yes, it’s scheduled for December 11 and tonite we’re performing it at the local senior housing facility. I will try recording it on my phone Sunday night.
Our music director at school taught me to be an accompanist when I was in junior high and he taught me well. An accompanist does not lead – an accompanist follows and thinks ahead. An accompanist does not hesitate if she makes a mistake because the singers are still singing. An accompanist must know how to COUNT the music perfectly or everybody sings it wrong. Everybody period. I don’t make it a practice to brag but I will this time – I am a great accompanist.
Somebody asked if Keeper is getting bigger and the answer would be yes – he’s tall and lanky and I have no idea how big he will get! Hazel went to the vet yesterday because I am worried about how she eats and her lack of interest in going outside with me. My vet and I have decided she is a diva and not a typical terrier and she has gained 2 pounds!!!!!! since October. Yikes! She and I both need to go on a diet. She takes pouting to a new level.
Ok, now I think I’m caught up – I was in too much of a hurry yesterday and didn’t give you details.
My electrician is coming this morning to fix that out of control ceiling fan – thank goodness as I am sick of it.
