A One Track Mind

It might be because I spent a week seeing the award winning quilts from the National Juried Show, but I was in a mood to quilt. And someone how I got it in my head to really quilt this quilt.

Seriously, this sucker is going to be heavily quilted! I won't be going to the extreme of stipple less than 1/8 of an inch big, but I am motivated to do some serious needlework now. I'm not complaining though, I think it will be just perfect.

Remind me, however, not to put my tea next to my pin box next time.

LOL. Because I have little grandchildren, I was just going to do a post on safety in the sewing room. I think your picture needs to be added to the mix!

I will enjoy seeing it when you complete it. I was just telling someone to check out that quilt. It is spectacular.

oh, dear. I hope you didn't cry over spilt tea! I'm making serious progress with my ufo's and wip's as our quilt show and tea approaches. I'm hoping the motivation continues after all the tea is drunk! Happy quilting!

Oh dear! Normally I'd look for the cup half full, but in this case, I hope it was nearly empty!

Have fun with the quilting! I can't wait to see how it turns out.
