Too Many Things . . .

Too many things keeping me out of my quilting studio. I'm getting very cranky. Somebody better change somethin' around here or things are apt to get nasty.

It's only the beginning of November, and it'll be okay if I don't have my new holiday shower curtain quilted and ready to be hung until December 1st. But, ooooh, my fingers are itchy to get that one done.

I'm waiting to get the baby quilt for my daughter backed and sandwiched. It won't take long to quilt it, and I'm anxious to see how it looks . . . 'tis so true that quilting makes the quilt.

'Bout all I can do right now is keep plugging away at other things that have to take priority before I can get at the sewing machine . . . and look at and dream of projects planned.

I've never made a two-color quilt and have a real fondness for the traditional Flying Geese pattern, so when my favorite quilt shop had a going-out-of-business sale a month or so ago, I got the fabric for this pattern I've had filed away for "someday."

The beige/ecru is the background, the solid red for the Flying Geese and, woo-ee, I couldn't pass up this great polka dot for the backing. It's 75" x 91" so I'll probably make a couple of blocks here and there while working on other projects in between. (Like Christmas things!)

Your red & white "project" reminds me of my red & white Cross & Crown quilt - made for hon and me for a wedding gift by my aunt and her sister-in-law. It is still a favorite of ours and has been slept under for many years! Have fun with this one. Vivian

Hi, Vivian - I love the Cross and Crown block . . . perfect for a two-color quilt.

Hey, Diane - Pretty lame of me to post a picture of both those quilts so soon after the first time, huh? But it's like they're taunting me everytime I walk by them, "Why aren't you working on me? Why, why, Why?!" Can you sense I've got a little bit of frustrating over my lack of quilting time going on here?
