I don't usually name my quilts but this is for the daughter of a special friend. She is a star in every way, she has a scholarship to NC State University next year and she deserves a special quilt.
My husband chose this backing. I had something else with lots of color and he said oh no. This is the man that usually doesn't notice my quilts at all. He really likes this young woman and has been so complimentary about this quilt. I used my beloved D9P but added a couple of liberated stars for visual interest.
When I was at my daughters a couple of weeks ago I was looking at a quilt that I did for her a couple of years ago. I machine quilted it and when I looked back at it I thought that's not so bad. I brought my machine downstairs yesterday and put it on my dining room table. I had lots of room and the table supported the weight of the quilt. I will definitely do more machine quilting. This was just a random pattern but it was fun.
The temperature is supposed to top 100 today. It is a good day to stay inside and sew. I am working hard to get my mojo back. What do you do when you get in a slump and are not motivated?
