I should be outside working in the yard, and planting unplanted plants, but if you live in northeast Ohio and within a mile of Lake Erie, you are cursed with swarms of insects known as muffleheads aka canadian soldiers aka midges. They are everywhere.
Not to be deterred by insects or burst pipes I decided to head to the craft room and work on my quilt.
Can I just say I am really loving this whole patchwork process. The hum of the machine. The steam from the iron. Cutting strips and squares of gorgeous fabric. Watching as the squares become a gorgeous quilt top.
I finished the quilt top this afternoon and now have to make some floor room so I can lay out the backing and get everything put together.
