Random notes from a former confirmed spinster who still lives with cats. Some things never change. Oh, and I quilt, hike, and bake on occasion.

Our long national nightmare is over.
My machine is back early from its erratic service schedule which means I can take advantage of this cold, rainy day and get to work on the Dutch quilt. I've toyed with pinwheels or making a Lady of the Lake quilt. After much debate I've decided to go with a pinwheel block, but a double pinwheel because I like the motion the double pinwheel emulates. As you can see from this poorly drawn picture of a starfish on meth, the pinwheels do seem to be moving. I also drew in lines on how I intend to machine quilt it. I'll be using a black background and will be stippling that and for the fans, I'll be adding some curved lines. I am also probably getting ahead of myself by worrying how I'm going to quilt this since I really need to make the quilt first. Off to find where I hid the rotary cutter!
