Still working on the Nevada quilt ~

A while ago someone my sister knows asked if I’d make a quilt for her, not being of sound mind, I said yes. :) I lost my mojo on it, but have jumped back into the swing of things.

This is as far as I got when my quilting mojo ran far far far away ~

Parts of the Nevada Quilt…back in April 2012

Let me tell you! It’s been a bugger of a quilt. I threw the pieces up onto the design wall and sat back just staring at it…then sitting on the couch, with Lucy and Luna, pondering how the hell am I going to attach all those together?! All I can say is Thank God quilting and a wash will hide some of my mistakes. :)

Piecing the bugger together.

After bouncing off some ideas on my friend’s head, I decided it did indeed need something else up north of the State of Nevada. So I started making wee stars. Will make two grey and one blue. Still need to add some strips here, stars over there…that sort of thing…but am hoping to get the top finished and ready to sandwich by the weekend.

ALMOST THERE!

  1. Look at all those geese. Well done. The stars bring interest to the white space – good call. I can completely understand losing the quilting mojo during summer – why quilt when you can be running around in the fresh air?

  2. Hey, you have a birthday this month! Happy Birthday! I know I’m a bit early, but had to get this in before old age made me forget :-).
