Just plain lines

I have finally got around to pinning up some quilts and doing some quilting. I always put off basting, and then I'm surprised when I do it and it doesn't take long after all, and I wonder why I didn't do it earlier. And while I pin I think about what kind of quilting I might do .... what might look good and what I can be bothered with. Not much, as it turns out, because the scrap and circles quilt is just getting diagonal lines.

And not even closely spaced diagonal lines. Matchstick quilting this is not. The flag red white and blue quilt has turned into half square triangles - quite large - in rows. I based it on this quilt which has a nice mix of scrappiness and coherence. Other than that not much is happening - I can't believe it's March already. Especially when it's still boiling hot - we're onto our second straight week of mid-30s temps without a break and no rain. Everything is very droopy including me and the kids. Bring on winter! I have had enough of this sun.

  1. you're ready for winter and i'm ready for spring. sort of. i like winter, but now our weather is going back and forth. one day it's warm, the next day we are scraping ice off the car windows. i guess i'm just ready to see some buds on the trees and some green grass.

    the quilting looks good to me. let's the business of the quilt talk to you.
