First Football Finish of the Season

>> Wednesday, October 5, 2011

 Even though there isn't technically Football games on Tuesday night, we watched one of the channels where you can watch all the highlight plays of the games from the past weekend. I finished sewing down the last part of the hanging sleeve last night.

This wasn't supposed to end up as a wallhanging! These are some of the Lady of the Lake blocks that some of my friends at Pat Sloan's Quilt Mashup Forum made for me to help me finish my Lady of the Lake quilt. But, because I was quite the novice quilter when I started this project {ahem. . .11 years ago!} my original blocks finished smaller than these ones. Correct seam allowances matter!!!

Here's the same photo adjusted to black and white. You can really see how value makes the design come alive. The dark on point squares in the background really make me happy. I love when a design that I've only played with on paper "works" in fabric.

 For now it will hang in our dining room, directly across from my chair:) The plan is to hang it over our bed when the Lady of the Lake quilt is completed. I will have matching decor!LOL

Lots more to blog about, just not the time to blog AND quilt. The choices we must make some days, eh?! Hope you are enjoying some early Fall finishes. I was at the quilt store yesterday and the one woman who works there said she isn't sewing gifts for Christmas this year. This year it will be cookbooks for her family! I think this will keep the JOY in her quilting this season - a trend I think I'm going to follow:)

With Joy,
Sarah Vee
