With hubby and his daughter off camping, and the Olympics on the television, I got the top pieced to my commission quilt this weekend. I left work on Friday night and stopped to pick up a little sushi to bring home for dinner. After seeing them off, I settled in for a little "me" time. It is always nice to have the house to myself for a little while. No one else to worry about, I can leave the bed unmade if I want and eat when and what I want. I can stay up late and sleep in. Of course, I was really ready to see them roll back in this afternoon. The operative word here is.....a "little" alone time. I lived alone for a couple of years before remarrying in 2008. I was happy during that time and had a busy, full life. But, I have to say I love being married to my husband.
Anyway, I'm so happy to get the quilt top pieced. I am thinking that I will do straight line quilting for this. I like the contemporary look of that type of quilting and I think anything else would get lost in the patterns of the fabric. This quilt pattern calls for random placing of the squares and that is very difficult for me. I find myself wanting to "arrange" the squares so that each fabric is evenly placed. This time I made myself just grab the next square in the stack and sew it down. I'm undecided about the end result. It does look better in person, the picture doesn't quite do it justice. I'm open to comments, let me know what you think.
