It was 110 degrees today outside and just as hot inside. No really, the air conditioner was on and it was very comfortable so I was cutting and piecing a very special project for my Son and his future wife and my machine was on fire.
I have been collecting fabrics for months in fall colors since the wedding is on Halloween I even have some fun Halloween prints. I have played with so many possibilities on EQ6 that my head was spinning, but last week I went on a trip to spend some time with my sister and her baby boys and we took a trip to a quilt store that was making a change in ownership so they were clearing out a lot of merchandise. One of their sales was 50% off all books, so I loaded up! What fun I had! The boys were very patient with me and well behaved and we all had a great time. They are precious and my sister is an amazing Mom. I only wish we could have had our babies together because I could have learned a lot from her. I don’t know if you can read the tee shirt on Brody, the top picture, but it says “SAVE Energy Take a Nap”, words to live by for sure!
I love when you are working on a project and all the pieces just come together beautifully and fit so perfectly like it was meant to be. Well, that is how this project is going so far. Once I decided on a pattern I found in one of the books I bought and it all made sense. I have been seeing this on a lot of blogs lately also. It is a double hour glass, and I was able to use the fabrics I had been collecting in such fun and interesting combinations and I think it will all look great with a 2 inch black border. Next to decide on the outer border and the backing, but for now I am really liking my progress.
When it gets hot, get quilting!
