… at around midnight one night that he was ready to hang a quilt for you! Out of the blue, all of a sudden, entirely unexpectedly, you hadn’t given much thought which quilt to use…. what would you do?!
1. DAY IN LIFE
Well, I can tell you what I did: I rushed into my sewing room, and started to pull out neatly folded quilts from my stash of about 25o quilts. Frantically running back and forth and making sure the width of the quilt will fit the width of the rod – only to find out quite a few of them didn’t have a hanging sleeve because I hadn’t had the time to sew the sleeve on when I was completing the quilt for an editorial feature! [My quilting teacher taught me well, but I haven’t practiced what she taught as well…. the guilt is entirely mine!]
About an hour later…. the quilt is up. All is well, and my husband went to bed — while I sat in a chair and feeling thankful for a husband who has been more than supportive of all the craziness related to my quilting gig — and thinking about all the quilts strewn about in the sewing room and still needed to be refolded and put back!
I decided to hang my Calico Trail (from my book Recreating Antique Quilts – books are still available!!) because it captures the different colors I have in my family room. This is not the best picture, but I snapped this shot in the early morning sun this morning…

3. SPRING ON BLEECKER STREET QUILT-ALONG
I have missed Oct 15 and Nov 15 due to an incredibly busy last couple of months. I am shooting for Dec 15 for an update before the year ends, which will bring us close to finishing up the quilt top! If you have any progress pictures, please email them to me.
Have a great weekend – I will be putting in long hours to get a quilt top out next Monday! ARGH….
