When in doubt,
follow your heart.
A simple trip to the Quilting Bee in Spokane to drop off JOY! for an upcoming local quilt show quickly turned my planned studio time this week upside down. As I was leaving the store, a Halloween display caught my eye.
A quick text to my daughter confirmed the images would make a perfect Halloween quilt. So, I picked out a few fabrics, did some quick guesstimates on yardage, and committed myself to sewing up a new quilt in the next few days.Soon my design wall was rearranged with ‘works in progress’ shoved over to a side while I contemplated design options. The ‘free pattern’ offered in the store was way too detailed if I was to produce this lap quilt in a few days.
I think all my efforts for Quilts Beyond Borders contributed greatly as by Wednesday I had a front and back cut, pieced, and was assembling my quilt sandwich.
Much to my own amazement (and selection of very, very simple big free motion quilting lines), I was able to quilt my quickie project in a day!
While the results are most definitely not ‘Houston’ standards, the most important ‘judge’ of my halloween quilt gave it a definite nod of approval.
Linking to Nine Marie”s Off the Wall Friday to see what other quilters have been up to.
