Definitely no sewing here today. Boo. I think I’ve been grumpy this week because of not sewing. I feel guilting sewing when I have so many other things to do (the previously mentioned taxes and guild stuff). So I feel miserable about all of it and do none of it.
But it was the “get to know each other” potluck for softball tonight. I pulled out my favourite quilt to use as a picnic blanket, and it’s ALWAYS a conversation starter. I hang out with quilters so much I forget that quilting seems magical to non-sewers. So that’s a fun ego boost.
This one is from long before blog, it’s lifetime quilt #13 and was completed in March 2013. It contains 2,401 2.5″ squares. Of the 1,825 print squares there is only one duplicate. I swapped fabric with 34 people in 7 countries on 4 continents. The original pattern is called Steps to the Altar but this version is called “scrap vomit” by the wonderful Katy Jones.
