As promised….

Photos of the quilt I finished.  The owner was happy to come get it today.  As usual, click any photo to enlarge it.

And this is the back:

Today I was in slow motion.  But I did make some new kitchen curtains.  The old blinds broke last week and I replaced them right away.  These windows are on the west side of the house and it gets darn hot in the afternoon without something in the window.  Plus, this is where my machine is, so it needs to be cooler so that I can still quilt…. even through my “personal summers” or “older female power surges”.  yes… older.  I know it, you know it.  get over it!

The wallpaper border is fruity, so when I saw this birds and fruits fabric at wallyworld, I had to have it.  I think I have a major bird thing goin on.  Anyway, I bought the fabric a couple months ago and just now got the curtains started and finished in a day.  YAY ME!

I can NOT believe I’m gonna show you my kitchen sink, but there ya have it:

And this big window is right behind my machine.

Construction starts next week, as long as the weather cooperates.   It has been in the upper 70’s all week, and great weather for the past 2 weeks. Excavation Monday, construction Tuesday.  Snow predicted Wednesday.

Any bets??

But we are ready.  Here is the official BEFORE shot of the site.

    Those good comments raised my spirits. I’m the piecer of the quilt and the quilting is beautiful. How many of you noticed there are two patches incorrectly placed. I may name it “Quilters Dementia” Another learning curve.
