This week, there has been very little quilting. The school year is winding down, and I have to say, this has to be my all-time favorite class. So even though I’m exhausted, I’m trying to remind myself that a class like this comes along once every decade. (I hope?!) Last night our fourth graders performed A Midsummer’s Night Dream and I was speechless. I hope I never get tired of teaching young souls and celebrating all they have to offer the world.
(Final rehearsal before the big event.)
Can I just say that I am such a stage mom. My god, dancing like a fool, waving spirit fingers at my face to brighten theirs, snapping, clapping, etc. Bless my future child’s heart. I also might have teared up. (Softy over here!)
Since this week has been crazy, and I got distracted last night by starting a pillow, this is all I have to show for my next quilt top: a plan of attack and the outside borders sewn together.
Simple. Chicopee. Need I say more?
If this fabric was all I got for Christmas over the next 5 years I would be a happy girl.
Up next on my agenda is finish this top and finish this baby quilt – the binding fabric is on its way! I might be second guessing my quilting plan, but I’m hoping the pins are fine even if I change my mind.
At the risk of scaring myself even more, how would you quilt it? Remember, I can’t FMQ, and I really like straight lines. I was considering straight lines, but only in one direction (top to bottom). Or even more organic wavy lines? But, then I don’t want it to get too stiff? What the world? Help a sister out?
Happy WiP Wednesday, friends!
