Maybe the photo above is unremarkable. But to me it is sewn sections. I still find it disappointing that after all this sewing the finished product will be so small. And I scared Kate today by telling her this project belongs on a wall, not on her bed. Her whole face fell and it reminded me that once I give this to her it is hers. It is a gift. If she puts it on her bed...well, the quilt is hers, go ahead. Knock yourself out, baby. Love you.

Challenges are just that
Challenges are just that...a challenge. I didn't make it to finishing the quilt in 30 days. Today again I am putting together the pieces that I can. It was a rocky start this morning as I was not looking forward to re-sewing pieces I had already done. But, once I got started...hey, it was nice to be working at this project again.It helped that football is on television. I can zone out or not to the sound of the commentators. I did quit sewing altogether during the final two minutes (truly the best part of any close game) and sat in front of the television; close enough that if my mother had been here she would have told me to back up, I'll hurt my eyes.
