My New Quest

In a quest to have more time with family (since soon our first grand will be here) I've been not sewing during the weekends unless there is really nothing else happening.

I did add the last side of the last border to my Churn Dash top yesterday but that only took about 10 minutes since I had everything ready to do it.  Then I spent the rest of the day sitting around with my daughter, watching some TV and chatting.

Today we are meeting up with a friend for an early supper and a visit.  She is my next commission quilt so I'll show her some idea pictures and we'll discuss what she wants.  I'm making a wedding quilt out of family (both sides) linens and wedding dresses.  I'm scared half to death that I will really mess it up but she trusts me so I'll do the best I can.

She says her daughter and fiancee are very traditional so likely I'll just have them choose a color scheme and the quilt will be a traditional double wedding ring with the centers as the family linens and dresses.  I'm hoping she'll actually choose one of the liberated wedding ring patterns that I have found but I don't have TO much trouble sewing curves so either way it will be fine... I hope.
