My sewing room is once again a disaster. Our guild participated in Quilt in Public Day and I grabbed armloads of quilts to take for display. I also brought my witches quilt for the president of our guild, a longarmer, to finish for me. I want to enter it in the County Fair and the deadline for that is next month. It has waited a long time to be completed.
I did add eyebrows, noses and eyelashes to the witches' faces before handing it off with a pieced backing.
I liked the lace inset on the back.
And I liked the change in hemline from front to back. I simply sliced up the middle to make a kimono.
Not so great at selfies, but it drapes nicely and is lightweight but not see through.
My next quilt project is a comfort quilt. Our neighbor's 11 year old son has developed an osteosarcoma on his right leg and has been undergoing chemotherapy. He has a few more weeks of this before the tumor is excised, then more chemotherapy. The doctors say it is localized and highly curable, but of course the treatment is severely toxic and horrible to endure. I asked his mom if he had any favorite colors and he chose black and green; "Green for luck", he said. I have selected this design for his quilt:
All the HSTs are now made and I've got a start on cutting a few of the strips of black and white for the four patches. I also ordered some flannel from Connecting Threads which is on its way. Some other stuff may have jumped in the cart too :)
Whew, now I gotta fly to work!
