I'm still working on getting out of the "square" rut, but I have some tops that need to become quilts. I put this one together a few years back. Had this random pile of pieces and parts of various fabrics...denim, flannel, shirting, etc. I paid no mind to lining anything up. I think it was an exercise in just accepting whatever happened with it.
I pulled it out of the pile of UFO's last week. I think it would be a great fishing quilt. Something to throw down on the banks of a lake and relax on. Have a picnic. And not worry about ruining something. Toss it in the wash, and then head out with it the next time.
This is going to be the other side of the quilt. I had originally purchased this fun fabric to make my husband a pair of boxer shorts. Never got around to it. Found it again and decided to use it with the fishing quilt. The blue is denim. I don't usually combine different fabric weights, but I am just keeping with the original plot of this one. I think I have some more flannel somewhere I can use to make it bigger. I figure it will be big enough for both of us to sit on.
I've been home now from the job for just over a month. I haven't started looking for work. Still working on getting myself back together physically and spiritually. I've been writing, canning, blogging, gardening. Spending some very good quality time with my husband and helping my mother out. I've been able to talk with friends and family. I didn't realize just how much I was giving to this last job. But then again, maybe I did realize it and that's why I quit.
On that note, It's Friday and Payday:) I think I will pull out a couple of steaks from the freezer for dinner. Maybe do some fishing this weekend.
Happy Quilting to All!!
