My middle brother loves mechanical things.
He loves to figure out how things work,
why things work the way they do,
and is fascinated by old buildings,
manufacturing plants, etc.
When I saw this quilt pattern I knew I had to make it for him.
He loves the Escher quilts I've made,
but Kaffe is not his thing.
Instead I'm making this quilt in these fabrics.
This is going to be one tedious quilt to make!
Each piece has to be in the right spot
and the rows are long.
Thankfully I've started checking the placement each time I
sew pieces together.
Plus, each seam needs to be pressed open and I don't enjoy doing that!
Here are the first four rows.Only 16 more to go!!
This week I am flying to California to help my daughter pack up their house.
Later in the week we will begin our drive back to Virginia
with a 5 month old and their English Lab.
(She, her husband and daughter are moving to northern VA...
only 2 hours from us!)
It will be and adventure, for sure!
I'm excited about seeing parts of our beautiful country I have not seen
and visiting quilt shops in states I have not been to.
(One of my bucket list items is to visit a quilt shop in each state.
I'm up to 25!)
It's a trip we will remember for a long time, I'm sure.
Obviously, there will not be much quilting done in the next couple of weeks,
but I'll be able to read blogs along the way.
So, until then....
