A new little quilt for the store where I work (American Quilting.) This was so much fun to make. I’ve been eyeing Nicey Jane since I heard Heather Bailey speak last fall. There are a few other prints thrown in. Do you recognize the pattern? It’s the same as the Mr. Roboto quilt from last summer. I used this off-set square tutorial.
I finished the binding while watching the end of Lost.
It’s really fun making quilts with other people’s fabric.
I get the satisfaction of designing and making something fun, without having to buy anything.
And I get paid to do it. I know. My life is rough.
And here is my “helper”. He thought it would be really funny to flop down on top while I was trying to take pictures.
The socks. I’m trying to convince him now that it’s warm outside (most of the time) that he shouldn’t wear just socks when he plays outside. I’ve made his shoes readily available, even told him it’s okay if he goes barefoot. But no. He insists on the socks. And our sock collection is wearing out quickly. Yesterday he came home from a friend’s house and proudly told me, “Eli wears socks outside too! And guess what? His have holes just like mine!” Gosh, one of my favorite parts of summer is not having a monster sock pile to sort every time I do the laundry. At least that is what I’d hoped. But at the rate he’s going there will be no socks left to put holes in.
Many thanks for the awesome travel tips. I can’t wait to put them to use!
