Today, I spent half the day in The Studio. It was nice to spend some time in my haven. I've let it get in a bit of a mess which is not conducive to productivity. I folded fabric last week in anticipation of my granddaughter's assistance in resorting my stash. Unfortunately, that didn't happen, so I resorted it myself today.
My brother asked for a quilt for his stepson a couple months ago. The stepson just bought a house and brother and sister-in-law wanted a quilt for a housewarming present. The request also included fabric with daisies and royal blue. So I found two background fabrics and a variety of coordinating blues. While this should be a relatively simple quilt, the combination of colors has made it a bit complicated.
I have frog quilted more on this quilt (rip it, rip it) on this quilt more than anything I've ever sewn in my life. I was explaining this to my son, Matthew, this afternoon and he asked if I was quilting or playing chess.
There are two backgrounds and eight blues. So I have to match the background to the appropriate blue, so the conversation goes something like background 1 to blue 4. I have to agree that it sounds a bit like chess to me.
I think it is going to be lovely. It is a Carpenter's Star pattern.
