I don't know how long it will be before I can take a big bite out of something, but Rob asked me last night what I wanted to eat after a week of liquid/soft food diet. I want a crisp crust pizza, covered with italian sausage and peppers. And, I want to take a big bite out of a thick juicy hamburger. Not thinking he's going to let me bite into the burger just yet, but there's still hope for the pizza soon.
Here's the finished denim quilt I made Monday and Tuesday. So, why did this become a high priority? When I got home last thursday, I just wanted to cuddle under my cuddle quilt and take a nap. But, my cuddle quilt was spread over the seat of the sofa. No more. Now, I have my cuddle whenever I want it and the sofa has a much stronger cover to protect the upholstery.
This is the inside. All the edges are finished, so no raveling. The seams are just like the outside leg seams of a pair of jeans.
And, here it is in it's new place. Now, I need to make two smaller versions for the chairs. Hmmm. More treadling? I think so. I really enjoyed that and want to put some free motion work in the outer border. Something borderish and I'm going to do it all on the treadle. But, first, I have to pull the treadle out of the corner. The quilt is so heavy, I need more table surface for it to sit on if I'm going to do free motion. Gravity is truly the free motion quilter's enemy.
Everybody have a great Thursday. Lane
