I did something yesterday that I haven't done in a very long time. I took almost the whole day "off". I worked on my quilt for Paula Nadelstern for about an hour and I spent the rest of the day just watching football. I'll usually sew while watching TV but no this time. It was a good break.
Today I will get back to the "Paula quilt". I've finished the piecing and it's about half quilted so I'm doing well toward meeting the deadline. The hardest part is building the blocks from a limited range of symmetrical fabrics and I'm past that so most of my stress is gone too. Now I'm just enjoying the quilting process.
I can't show you the quilt or fabrics but I can show you this EQ file of the layout. I used the same sashing that I used in my Grandmother's Choice symmetry quilt but set this one on point. I can't wait to share it because I like it even better than last year's quilt.
I've been listening to the second volume of the Elvis Presley biography while working on this quilt. I said in my review that I was never a big Elvis fan but these books have given me an appreciation for his talent, charisma and influence on music. These are long books but they don't seem long at all. I'm totally engrossed.
That's all that's going on here. Check out what everyone else is doing at Patchwork Times.
