A Day Off to Sew

The semester has begun, so it's been a bit crazy, but Tuesday I had off and since i'd finished all my marking over the weekend, i decided to sew the whole day. I finished about 2o Sister's Choice blocks (the nine-patches were already done and the other pieces were mostly cut out. I'd spent an afternoon matching potential point colors with nine-patches. I'm trying to use a lot of dark colors in the points, to sort of anchor the quilt, but if a block is all light/medium colors, i'll use medium points because I don't like it when the points look as if they're separate from the nine-patch. I think the stars should feel organic.

Hi Nettie. A very productive day indeed. Today I saw your grandmas' quote in the title ant it is very funny. I use to say something like that to people beginning patchwork or quilting: "In a few weeks you can appreciate your work much closer"

Must have been an exiting day for you. Ich genieße es, wenn ich mal einen ganzen Tag lang nur dem Arbeiten an einem Quilt widmen kann und am Ende was in den Händen halten kann, was da entstanden ist und eine Weile Bestand haben wird.
