Lyda here. The Resident Sith Master is spending the first part of this week at his dad’s for Spring Break, so I’m flying solo for a bit.
So last night, I pulled all the quilting supplies out of the closet again and set to work. I cut more squares of fabric for the Heart Quilt. “What a boring name.” Raise your hands, everyone who knows what that’s from.
I cut up the yellow and orange prints for the second heart of the quilt. I love these fabrics! Once again, I cut way more than needed, both so I could play around with the arrangement and so I can use them in other projects. I also cut one or two two-inch strips from each fabric, which I will use for a strip quilt someday. This idea is once again from one of the many quilting books I’ve read (don’t know which one, I’ll see if I can figure it out): Cut a two-inch strip of each fabric you use for every project, and after a while, you have a wide assortment of strips and can make a quilt out of them fairly quickly.
I of course had the Dread Cat Tommy’s assistance for last night’s work. He actually let me spread out the squares without destroying the pattern. He was definitely off his game. I came up with an arrangement I like, and then noticed it was 10:30 and way past my bedtime.
The best part of the whole night? The luxury of being able to leave everything out in the living room. Also, a local channel decided to re-run the series “Quantum Leap” from the beginning, and since I somehow missed out on most of this show, I enjoyed watching the premire episode which aired first in 1989. The hair! The episode was set in the 50s, but OMG the 80’s hair! So funny!
Tonight, I will cut the purples for the third and final heart. And then I need to pin all the rows together, and number them, so I can pick everything up off the floor before RSM comes home Wednesday. And then will come the sewing, lots and lots of sewing.
What a thrilling life I lead! I know ya’ll are jealous.
Don’t hate me because I’m exciting.
