Mother's Day didn't turn out quite like I expected. I had a migraine that kept me in bed all day long. Thankfully, early in the day, I picked a load of rhubarb from my garden and brought it back to the city with me. So guess what I did today? Rhubarb Jam. Yum!
Today is also a day to get projects in order for the flight to Kansas City/ Quilt Market on Friday. Boo's Birthday is coming up and she wanted a wrap jacket like I made back here. (click for old post) It's hard to see it here, But it's an A-symmetrical wrap jacket similar to mine. There is NO pattern for it, I make these things up as I go. I started out sewing ( way back when) a lot of clothes, so I can kind of do these things in my sleep.
I'm making Boo's with black on the outside, and grey on the inside, which is the opposite of what I did on mine. She's such a NYC kid, she likes black. I am stitching out the leaves in blue thread, her other favorite color. I then cut out the black and the grey shows through. You can find out more and HOW to do these type of stitching in these books:
Alabama Stitch books by Natalie Chanin.
I also got a couple quilts back from Shelly for longarming... I just cut the binding for this quilt, inspired by Amy Ellis's Book Modern Basics. The tulip fabric came from Spoonflower. I can't recall now who designed it, But I thought it looked so great, fussy cut, into the blocks.
I made this over a year ago, I'm slow sometimes. LOL
I feel like I am fighting off another migraine... Perhaps this rainy, humid air is messing with my head...
Maybe I should go eat some sugary jam... ;-)
