The weather was horrible yesterday. And the wind was horrendous, blowing the snow off the fields and making a mess of the roads. Then came the sleet. And then, when the kids were sent to bed, and it was my turn at the computer.... I was making great progress on some catch up.... When the power went out.
Amazingly, the school was not closed today and I had no misgivings this morning as I drove them down the lane to meet the bus!
Sew here's the update....
This is the quilt my friend Linda made for Victoria's Quilts. She is not a free motion quilter and her long arm companion has some health issues right now, so she asked if I could help her out.
I am not much of a free motion quilter myself, but she can play the organ at our church without getting nervous, whereas, I am a wreck. So, was looking for help in deciding on a design for this manly quilt. Did not want to do flowers or loopy, curvy things for this. Karin kindly offered a suggestion in the comments from my last post. She thought zippling, by +Leah Day, would be perfect for these large square blocks.
I thought zippling would be perfect too! Unfortunately, I did not have what it takes to zipple at a moments notice, sew I went with Leah's Cave Points instead. Still sharp and masculine, but sew much easier to accomplish in the tight squeeze offered by my little Janome, and with my limited free motion skills. Not sure if skills is the right word... But ineptness sounds a bit show-off-ish.
Ahhh... Now I am back to some spring colours, spring flowers, light and bright! No more pressure!
And spring must be coming soon, because there was finally enough light coming through my little window, to provide an unusual event to occur! A photo with accurate colours and it is hardly even blurry at all!
How is your Wednesday coming along? Following +Marelize Ries' lead and am linking up with WIP Wednesdays@Freshly Pieced
Looking forward to continuing the quilting this afternoon... Bee right back!
