Let me tell you what, quilting is good for the soul. I have been needing this time to cut up fabric and put it back together again. This weekend I was able to finish all the rows for my mom’s quilt (plus some that I’m too short to reach) and now I just have to motivate myself to iron them. That is not good for the soul.
I really, really, really love this quilt. I’m so glad that my mom liked these fabrics for her quilt because it means I’ll always be able to see it. But, really, how am I going to motivate myself to iron this?! ALL THE SEAMS.
And finally, I’ve been pulling fabric like a madwoman for my class with
fabric god Anna Maria Horner. Let me tell you what didn’t happen – putting anything back.
If it’s floral, it’s making the trip to Austin. It’s also packed in my carry-on backpack. Y’all. Nothing useful is in my carry on – it’s only fabric. Because I’d much rather be without clothes for 4 days, than not have my fabrics. Oh lord.
Tonight can’t come soon enough!
