I alluded to this in a previous post, but based on some of the comments I’ve received, I want to clarify that I cannot take credit for the look of the feathered star quilt that I am working on.
The fabric choices and the bulk of the piecing that is already complete was all done by my friend, the generous and super-talented quilt artist Ronda Beyer. The only thing I can take credit for right now is those center starbursts….
Several months ago she was clearing out some UFOs that she had lost interest in or grown frustrated by, and for some crazy reason I volunteered to take this one on. I’ve resisted working on it, but it called to me this week….
It’s up on my design wall still talking to me, but I’m trying to ignore it again. I spent yesterday alternately cleaning and messing around with other quilt projects that need my attention. I can actually see the blue countertop again! Some day I hope to actually completely clean my studio and have it all clean all at once so I can take pictures of it. Maybe in my next lifetime.
The boys spent the entire afternoon/evening downtown playing on the inflatable toys at our town’s summer festival. 7 hours of fun in the sun — it was 94 degrees and probably 90% humidity at 7 PM — I don’t know how they could stand it. I watched the parade, ate my pork loin sandwich, ate my one funnel cake for the year, and then came home to the air conditioning. I don’t particularly enjoy the sensation of sweat running down my body while I’m just standing still….
OK, on that note: I’d better get moving.
The quilt is looking great. I bet Ronda is just happy that it is getting finished! I also here you about sweating standing still! Stay cool today.
