Waiting on me...

I got busy Saturday afternoon and got the backing for this made, got everything stretched/spread out and t-pinned to the carpet, then got the quilt sandwich pin-basted. It is took all afternoon to do, I am still a bit stiff and sore from it, but it is waiting for machine quilting soon as I get some uninterrupted time. This is the 6-inch blocks I sewed together just a month or two ago...maybe even three months. It was something to do that didn't require thinking or planning. Sometimes I just want to sew, but don't know what, so I will do something like this. In fact, that is kind of how this quilt started out. Just wanted to sew...didn't know what...and was too tired at the end of a day to think much.

Oh, and here is a little Lorelei video...I was going to post it last night, but storms kept rolling through, so I unplugged everything and just left it unplugged till this morn.

The quilt is beautiful. I have no talent for sewing, any kind of crafts, or gardening. Good thing I have my photography or I might be talentless :-)

The quilt looks fine to me - one of the people who knows nothing about quilting. Loved the lorelei video.

My mother in law made quite a few of these kind of quilts with left over scraps during her years.
I think you have a wonderful hobby Rose.
Lorelei is really walking around a lot. Lucy almost is ready. I hope she waits till I get there for her birthday. :)

Sorry I haven't been around much. I'm posting and just answering comments when I can. I haven't been able to visit. Right now the meds for my knee are making me a little sick.

It's going to be a lovely old fashioned looking quilt when it is done. I love scrappy quilts.
