You can see the actual blocks and stars better in this upside down shot (taken from the other side of the ironing board. I like the look of the dotted sashing, and the deep pink stars.
I'm kind of rushing to get a bit of something together for this quilt, because I'm giving a little talk about my quilts tomorrow to a local group, and they'd like to see some of my work. Since I give away most of my quilts, I don't have a lot to show, so I thought they might like to see this one in progress. Hope to have the actual quilt finished and delivered by the end of June, so I need to keep on keepin' on. As you may remember, I have a LOT of words to make for the borders. First up will be side one: Life is a song -- sing it. I think I'm going to use one color family for each phrase, using maybe one fabric for the "Life is a song" and a deeper tone of the same color for "sing it." What do you all think?
And how about the obligatory kitty pic? This time with DH in the picture, too. He said this picture should be captioned "Ross and Cloudy...Working"
There's some knitting going on, too, and I'll be attending my first Southern Highlands Stitch 'n Sip (sounds a lot nicer than Stitch 'n Bitch, doesn't it!) gathering tonight. This little group was recently begun as a forum on Ravelry by Clovelly, and now, at her instigation, we're actually getting together in person -- face time! I'll try to remember to take my camera...
