A numerate binding

I’ve decided on a numerate binding for the kite tails quilt.

I love the contrast between orange and blue.

It’s the final episode of Survivor tonight. I think I should get quite a bit done by the time the episode is over.

Time thief

“This quilt is only small.” I told myself.

“This will take no time at all to quilt.” I agreed with myself.

“It’ll be finished in just a couple of hours.”

Naturally I have chosen the densest windy swirls to quilt onto the blue. They’re perfect for the background, but highlight how deluded I am about the time I take to do anything…

It’ll be worth it, but you’ll have to come back in a day (or two or three or four) for me to show you the results.

Windy days

After a busy weekend in which we celebrated my son’s 18th birthday I have finally started adding the kite tails.

They are really lifting the whole quilt.

After I’ve drawn my quilt layout on my computer,

and seen the quilt in my imagination, I love it when it becomes a real quilt.
