The last couple weeks have been rather unproductive for me, but I have been trying to get some client obligations out of the way. My other half has been home for the first 2 weeks of (good God) what I think is a 4 week medical leave. He makes being a work-at-home business owner a very difficult task. The concept of "make yourself scarce" between 8am and 3pm AND be quiet does not make sense. Consequently, I have cried a lot, and gone for drives so that I can scream and yell in silence.
Never the less, I have tried to work through a few client obligations so I can get closer to loading one of my own quilts. I am still a few days off because I forgot I needed to order batting (and likely silk thread too).
Here's a Neimeyer star quilt I did a couple weeks ago. It's not the first of these I have done, but I have to say I'd be a happy quilter if all batik client quilts could go this easily. Usually this tighter woven fabric causes all sorts of unpredictable issues. Not this time.
I varied up the fills and then stuck in a couple of little birds, just for fun.
'For those of you fortunate enough to be in Paducah...know that I am realy envious. I just hate that I am not there this year...with my book release and my quilts there. One of them has a 1st place. The other just cannot ribbon. Don't know why!?! Oh well, life goes on.
