This quilt has seen a lot of kitty love and fur.
The quilting is finally done…maybe. I didn’t quilt the edges where there would have been half a feather.
I’ve put on the binding and now I’m hand stitching it to the back of the quilt. I actually enjoy this part.
I think it’s nice to be able to do it while listening to music or the radio, maybe even an audio book.
Today I opted to just listen to the sounds around me: the hum of the dishwasher, the buzz of the semis and cars on the interstate, and the birds.
Occasionally I like to be alone with my thoughts. Actually, I’d like to be alone with my thoughts most of the time, but that doesn’t happen. Are most people uncomfortable being alone?
Anyway, I thought about making a utility apron. Construction workers have utility belts to keep things handy. Hmmm. I’ll have to think about what I would put on it. Anytime I leave scissors or pins or stiletto next to the machine while sewing, they never seem handy.
Things went pretty well with this quilt. This is the first time I’ve done feathers and naturally, towards the end, I found a rhythm so those look the best. Speaking of rhythm, that’s the theme for the next quilt challenge. What am I going to do? This one has me stumped.
Well, back to the binding…oh, wait, the kids need to be fed or something.
