Back to work!

Three things to be happy about:
(1) pedestal tables
(2) new tweezers
(3) spinach, ham and cheese omelets

Well, the snow is melting and my neighbors are going back to work, so I have no one to hang out with during the day - and no excuse to NOT finish the Allietare quilt top!

I figured if Lynne over at the Patchery Menagerie can cut out and sew a flimsy in one week, while working full time and being supervised by Millie - surely to goodness I can sew ONE diagonal seam and put on two borders!

Well, actually I put on part of the first border... it wasn't any fun trimming the cooties off the setting triangles!

Very uncomfortable, whether I knelt on a pillow or stooped over, LOL.

So here 'tis, with just the sides of the inner border put on.

I like that gold, it was just the right choice for this quilt!

I'll show more progress tomorrow - sew forth and sew on til later...


  1. Glad to hear you are thawing (and melting) out. This is just a lovely quilt, take your time and enjoy the journey with it.

  2. I think the gold color fabric makes the quilt! This will be just stunning. Great job.
