The feather lessons start tomorrow. I have already quilted my top because I was going to show most of the drawings on paper but then I was torn about whether or not to have a top loaded on the machine just in case I needed to show the actual top being quilted. I decided yes . . that’s what I should do . . yesterday! So I have to get a top done in two days. I can do this . . maybe.
Yesterday I made all the half square triangles and got them trimmed and got this far with putting them together – 3 rows, 7 more to go plus borders. That would have been easy enough except . . the mail lady brought me this:
The cutest owl fabric ever! A blog reader found this at a store near her and sent it to me. Isn’t it adorable. I sent the picture to Nicole and she loves it. How can I work on the Carpenter’s Star with this fabric staring at me? OK! I have a plan. I think I know what I’m going to make but I’m going to walk over to the house and stick this fabric in the washer, stir up the pizza crust dough; then I’m going to come back and work on getting the Carpenter’s Star top finished.
There are only three more rows to sew together, and the borders. I can do this! Then I’ll load it on the longarm and then I can work on the owl quilt! Yes . . that’s what I will do!
