As you all know, we were scheduled to move last friday....but at the last minute, we decided to post-pone it for another three weeks. Now this of course means that life has been chaotic and stuck in limbo for me. I don't do good in limbo (chaos I can handle). We are now living in a 95% packed house with four kids and as if that wasn't enough....we have also had out of town guests for the last week. It's all about frozen pizza's and cereal at this point.
My saving grace is that I was leaving my sewing machine for the last minute pack up....so I can at least still spend some quality time with Nina to keep me sane.
Trenton's quilt top is finished....and we are both in love!! This was a complete collaboration between the two of us and the whole process just made me smile. I enjoyed seeing his choices and hearing his opinions along the way. I have never done a traditional square in a square quilt before, but love all the ones that I see (examples of a few of my favorites that inspired me here and here)...I also feel that it is a good staple pattern for a boy, Trenton agreed.
My boy has asked for a solid patterned backing verses a pieced one....so I will be basting this evening. I am really excited that it will be ready for his new bedroom before we move (so is he).
