Feeling loopy, seeing stars ...

No, I haven't been drinking; rather, quilting. While Peggy C was finishing up a really, really large (measured something like 99 x 120 inches) quilt for a special family friend, here:

I was doing this one for Joyce R.:

You can see the loops and stars better from the back:

Well, in this photo it looks more like loops and loops -- but it really does have a nice balance of stars if you could see the whole back at once. This is actually just a bit of the red band that goes down the middle. The blue fabric reflected the flash from my camera for reasons unbeknownst to me, so was an even worse photo.

Peggy's quilt turned out great, and I couldn't believe how quickly she got it finished. She was out of here before 3:00 today. I, on the other hand, dawdled a lot and was still "working" at 3:30 -- and this was not a very large quilt. If I'd not spent so much time looking at pictures in books, it wouldn't have taken so long. I was trying to plan the next quilt I am going to make for myself. I have one in mind, but couldn't remember where I'd seen it, so was on a hunt.

I did manage to get home before the torrential rains started. Just as I suspected would happen, we got a heavy downpour once it finally decided to rain here. What we really need is a nice, steady soaker. (M'Jo, if you're reading this, I STILL blame YOU!)

  1. Rain?! I'm so jealous! Is it the bee quilt you are searching for? I have looked at my fabric selection and still don't have a clue what I want to do.
