Olympic piecing marathon underway in blogland? The gun has sounded in NW IN. Finished piecing center of mid 1850 pinwheel inspired by Elizabeth Richardson exhibit - disappointing. This top has been put in time-out - what I see on the design wall looks a bit boring. I'll let this one sit for awhile.
I've pulled out a top started in January at our little quilt retreat in Shipshe. Jan helped me work thru design decisions - sometimes the quilt you see in your mind doesn't translate to the design wall. This top is using bowties exchanged in our old sewing group.
I've also pre-washed fabric purchased for a wall hanging of one of my favorite NYC Red and White quilts -
pre-washing and drafting complete. I have plenty to keep me occupied while rooting on the USA!
Jan and I had a wonderful NYC visit. Wish I could spend hours exploring the library!
