See, Y'all? This is the advantage of hand quilting. After about forty years of experience you can work by feel while sitting slack-jawed with yore feet up in front of the tube.

Amish Mafia - A show on Discovery Channel, about alleged enforcers in the Amish Community

http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/amish-mafia

Breaking Amish - Is or was a tv show on the learning channel about young folks breaking out, cussin' and flaunting their flesh in bikinis, stuff like that.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Breaking_Amish

Because of watching the shows I wanted to, when I get done with Sophie's quilt and before I go on with lizards and such, to make one or two Amish style, dark and black, center diamond or other simple style.

Because I got one of those thing, don't know what you call it, where the skin of your quiltin' thumb splits right at the nail and tries to get blood on the quilt, I stopped and made the Breaking Amish (because colors too loud for Old Amish), practice block.

My DW likes it, and now I'll extend it to the Breaking Amish table runner.

And that is the rest of the story, TMI, I know.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

I'm working on a table runner. I started with the pattern on the cover of Fons & Porter Love of Quilting, Nov/Dec issue and reproduced it in EQ7. I used Lemoyne Stars instead of their blocks but used their border pattern.  I hope to have it completed this week and will post a photo. I do love EQ7!

Yes, I worked on a quilt today.  and in the process totally destroyed my nice neat shelves of fabric, looking for just the right piece.  Fabric everywhere.  Kind of like a teenage girl going through her whole closet looking for something to wear.  Trying on lots of stuff and throwing them done, to grab something else. 

Tomorrow is Friday, I'll have time in the afternoon to find my project.  It's somewhere in all that fabric.

I do know what you mean Patti. I've got a jumble also, pulling fabric for a project. Ain't it fun?? Also, sometimes I think the only reason I make quilts is so one cat or the other can nap on one!

Judy, the cat knows the best place for a nap.  Nice cat, and quilt.

Thanks Ginny. Yesterday I worked on the mystery again, and I put on the binding on a small practice quilt in the style of Ann Brauer. I read an article about her in Quilting Arts and it got me inspired. I just had to make a small quilt like that. I'm also bubbling inside with all kinds of ideas on dying (?) my own fabric and incorporating that with her style, combined with my own favourite technique. I'll have to wait till spring though, it's to cold to dye fabric.

Almost have the last block quilted on Nolan's quilt!  Then I just have to do the borders and bind and done!  Yay!  Then do I work on Bentley's quilt or do one for me? 

Am finally feeling better, still so stinking stuffed up though!  The coughing is better, am sooooooooo very tired of cough drops!  But if I don't keep them in my mouth I am constantly coughing.  Can't even blow my nose clear, it is so not fun.  Oh well, this too shall pass.  But this is the third time since October and I am fed up!

Ok, on to quilting!  Everyone have a fab day!

Oh, patti, I go through that with every quilt.   I just made three quilts in the last week for the kids' school fund raiser.    When I finished and came to my senses, the fabric had exploded  all over the place.

Sounds like much of Eastern WA is covered in ice.  Freezing rain.  Even the local school districts have delayed school two hours.  Don't think I want to get on the road too early.  Think I will put the sewing room to order.

We had freezing rain past Spokane Wednesday night, and a blizzard on the pass.   Now rain in Seattle.  Pretty much typical of all our january drives when we commuted from Seattle to sandpoint weekly.    I keep my head down and read so I can't see how bad the roads are.

I did work on a quilt yesterday and will do another today.  I sandwiched quilt number 5 yesterday and will sandwich quilt number 6 today.  Then I can get the big table out of the middle of the floor....LOL.  Next project will be doing a border on  round robin block.  Then I can get back to some of my projects.

Seems like we dodged that bullet...no freezing rain here!  It was in the forecast for today when we went to bed last night, but we didn't get any and the forecast is now for clearing and none forecast.    Yeah!  Skiing in ice is NOT fun!!!
