Well, I did manage to get my blocks sewn together, it only took an hour but that was as far as I got.
I got that hour by putting in a Thomas the Train video and we all watched it together as I sewed. Sometimes Addison sat on my lap and watched me as I pieced the blocks. My new slogan will be “so easy you can piece them with a toddler on your lap”.
I do applaud you mothers and fathers with young children. I was there once but how quickly I have forgotten.
The blocks are not pressed and no further action was taken so maybe I can use them as garland on my tree.
See, this is real life at my house.
Then, I got a phone call from a fabric company;
Can you design a quilt for us with our new line?
Sure. I replied.
Oh, and can you have it done by this weekend?
Ahhhhhhhhh, sure I can. (gulp)
This was on Thursday and my schedule was pretty full, not to mention that I already had another quilt that I was supposed to be designing.
And not to mention that I was flying out of town to a very special quilt shop near Philadelphia on Monday to do a workshop and teach a class.
Yea, I can do it.(double gulp)
My husband thinks I am a crazy woman. I think he’s right..
So my little table topper project got pushed aside.
And I worked into the wee hours of the night. And into the wee hours of the morning.
And I think it turned out so beautiful and I can’t wait to show it to you. You will have to wait and find out the details later
And now… I am posting this blog from high in the sky.
In the meantime, if you have not had a chance to see the quilt pattern that I did for Hoffman California Fabrics, be sure to take a peek. And the best part is it is a free pattern. It is called Mulberry Steps. Scroll down and you will see it. Click the title and the directions pop up in PDF form.
I will post photos of my trip to Philadelphia.
