I found this old UFO when sorting through some recently unpacked quilts. I'd forgotten all about it! I remember making it and I'd even named it, though I don't remember what. Seems like it reminded me of the constantly shifting line of scrimmage in a football game, so it had a football-ish name. I hand dyed all the fabrics. Hmmm....
Apparently I'd just started quilting it, and now I see why I put it aside. I was shooting for straight line quilting and the lines are definitely NOT straight. I think I'll unsew all this quilting and try for a different effect.
Here's today's zigzag block. Yes, some UGLY fabric! But this is the perfect quilt for ugly fabric, don't you think? I'm actually on a mission to put my UGLIEST old pieces in this. In the end I think all the uglies will play well together and become beautiful.
The clouds were lovely outside my studio window this afternoon. Yes, that's a dead tree on the left - got to do something about that...
I bought myself some new walking shoes (with a touch of NEON!) and a new pedometer today - time to get moving! But first I think I'll have a piece of peach pie. :)
Good luck to Daughter 2 (Elizabeth) for your first day of Pharmacy School tomorrow! You go, girl!
