I’ve played around with the design and the colors and I think I might like this one. Tomorrow I may not like it at all. Today or tomorrow, maybe Dad will see it and weigh in on what he thinks. In the event Dad thinks it’s too much like Christmas after it gets made, then he’ll have a Christmas quilt and I’ll make him another one for the other 10 months of the year.
Part of me thinks the outer pieced border is too heavy for the rest of the quilt but without it, the quilt seems to be missing something. I tried putting a second red border out there but I came back to this pieced border. We’ll see what I think about it tomorrow. It’s not like I’m sitting here with nothing to do, you know?
Speaking of my parents, thanks to all who wrote me and to all who prayed for everyone in south Louisiana. My parents are back home and had no damages at all. I don’t think my friends in Houma fared so well though.
My plans for today included finishing a top and since I started playing around with designing Dad’s quilt, unless I stay up all night, the top is probably not going to get finished! I have zero self-discipline! But honestly, some days I’d just rather play with EQ. Some days I’d rather piece and some days, I’d rather quilt on the longarm. Too bad there’s never a day when I feel like cleaning house! 🙁
