I have way too many projects on the go at the moment. They are contributing, in part to the neglect this blog has received. I’ve been really busy, but then it is that time of year. Advent preparations at church, choir practice, budget planning for 2013, thinking about Christmas Eve services at two different churches in two different locations 50 minutes apart, Christmas shopping, baking, etc. etc. etc.
The project displayed is for my son’s girlfriend. She selected the fabrics and I searched and searched to find a pattern that would incorporated them in a pleasing way. It wasn’t easy, the fabrics were very similar to each other, lacking in contrast. I feel I made a good choice, the finished top turned out quite lovely. Even though I eliminated two rows and two columns from the pattern the finished top is too large for me to attempt quilting with my machine. Now I am trying to locate a long arm quilter that has an available appointment less than four months from now.
