You need to put aside the mountain of laundry, ignore the dog hair layering your floor, and avoid the dirty dishes cluttering the counter and just quilt. It was a crazy week at work, we had some crushing family news, and all of us are fighting colds. When the Monster went down for her nap I ignored my blackberry and hunkered down in the basement. It's amazing what you can do in a couple of hours!
I started the new baby's quilt. It's a simple design, but should be quite graphic when finished. Here is the midway point of the background. Just a bunch of half square triangles pieced into some pinwheels. Appliqued on top of that? Why circles, of course! Was there any doubt?
