My car broke down Wed, so I've spent the long weekend mostly at home. I did bundle up and walk to the quilt shop Friday (about 2 miles each way) to buy some yellows. I just realized that I need to make something for a Christmas gift to go with a quilt I made for a family member a while ago. My yellow stash was looking slim.
But then I realized that I needed gold to finish a double wedding ring as well. So I abandoned the hand quilting and the huge TV in the living room. I found a place for a portable TV in my sewing space so I could still watch football while I pieced. Cut out some yellow pieces and got to work on a UFO.
Before noon on Sunday, I had the melons done and laid out to distribute the different fabrics from the red rings. When will I ever learn and pick out a pattern that doesn't require being strewn across the floor before it's put together?
Marley was confused why I was here and not in the living room.
Here's the half way point. But I am Soooo done with piecing for now.
I'm headed back to the couch.
I do have more pictures of this project on Celebrate Hand Quilting where I was soliciting suggestions for how to approach the background fill. Stop on over there if you aren't already a follower.
