Seems like it has been weeks and weeks since I started a quilt...but I have about reached the point where it is time to start one.
I knew the next one I made would be in shades of blue and not a real "Girlie" looking pattern as this quilt would be for Leon's youngest son. When I asked him about making one his only request was blue preferably...could be green...since I have been working on lots of greens...I opted for the blue idea.
I saw this pinwheel pattern the other day and decided it would be the one. In making this sample I about decided I did not want to do this pattern....so many places that had to make sharp point. Then I had a talk with myself ...you know we all talk to ourselves from time to time.
Me: It is too hard...
Self: No, it isn't...
Me: Well, maybe make a quilt with 9 blocks.
Self: That would be too small...son is a big guy.
Me: Oh, okay make it with 30 blocks and several rows of borders.
Self: That sounds like a winner. Besides how are you going to improve your ability unless you practice on new patterns.
After this conversation - guess what I will be doing for the next few weeks when I have the time.
Yes, I will be in the sewing room - cutting, sewing and pressing - using this pinwheel pattern.
With the temps being so warm I will be spending more time in the house than in the yard. I checked the thermometer outside a while ago and it was 110. That is too hot to be working in the flowers or in the vegetable garden.
