You may remember I was doing some warm up sewing of strips together.
This is the top I pieced with one set of strips.
Poor photo and not pressed yet.

10 days Into Our Remodel

It was necessary to patch a small area. Fortunately we had some tiles left from the original build and the tile installer was able to salvage a few more.

Demo Day 3

This is what it looks like after contractors worked for the third day. It was a challenge for them to remove the tile floor on the right and it is not done yet.

The shower pan was removed also.

Warm Up Quilt Piecing

When I haven't sewn/quilted for a while and want to get going again I do some warm up piecing.

I have a lot of strips left over from other projects.
I started by just sewing a handful together and continued trying to make a more cohesive combination.
I had NO idea what I'd do with them, but that is the way I often work.
You can see the unit is slightly curved  I do believe I can press and eliminate most of that.
I am now piecing a second unit and I figured out why this happened and this second unit is quite straight.
Stay tuned as I intend to share this as it develops.

I Just Connected With This Beautiful Model

This beautiful model enjoyed posing in my airport coat.
The rest of the story: I used to wear this coat when I travelled.
I was on the people mover at the Atlanta airport and a man started talking to me. I was beyond the age where men started conversations with me to get to know me. He was intrigued by my coat.
This happened repeatedly when I travelled and often they would tell me their wives would love it.
It is a version of my slashed jacket pattern.
The subtitle is: My If I Wanted To Meet A Man In An Airport Coat!
No I don't want to meet one!
