As you know, I took my original design from this book:
but had to re-engineer it a little bit when I made a most unfortunate error in cutting. It's okay, I think. As my friend, Sharon, said in a previous blog post, the original quilt made the sun look more like a reflection on a lake. I think it better fits the theme of "Sunrise, Sunset" the way I did it. It all works out with a little creative fixing.
Here's how it looks from the back:
And this will be my stand-in project (a switch from the one I had planned originally) for this month's
In the meantime, I'll be linking up to the linky party for:
Speaking of sunrises, we had a pretty one at the Three Cats Ranch this morning.
That's Mt. Adams you see at the lower middle of the image.
Tomorrow I'm heading over to Silverton for the workshop preceding the Stitches in Bloom quilt show. I'm attending Heidi Leuger's two-day workshop on wool felting. No sewing machines or supplies are required since she'll be selling the kits we need right there at the workshop. I'm pretty happy about not having to rip apart my sewing room collecting supplies. I can just take my usual overnight stuff and be done with it. Mike is coming over on Friday night and we'll meet for dinner. Then, Sue is coming over Saturday morning for breakfast and a morning walk through the Oregon Garden. Admission to the garden is included with the price of the show.
I'll be blogging while I'm gone since that's the only way I seem to be able to remember anything. If you're interested in wool felting, I'll be telling you all about it right here.
And now...I have some errands to run and some packing to do.
