How about more Wild Air?
Wild Air is the pattern by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. I started my quilt in a class sponsored by the Corn Wagon Quilt Company in Springville, Utah. After blogging about my Wild Air I received a note from Julie, who was also in my class, along with this picture of her finished Wild Air. I thought you would enjoy seeing her beautiful quilt as much as I did.
Julie used Glace by 3 Sisters for Moda for the majority of the pieced blocks and Basic Grey Blush also by Moda for the red border. A funny story about Julie, she has since moved from Utah, and my first reaction was, " oh no, you must really miss the Corn Wagon Quilt Co", because I remember Julie being very active in several of their classes, but then Julie told me she now lives in Temecula, California, yes home of the Temecula Quilt Co! How could she be so lucky, Julie said the nice ladies at Temecula Quilt Shop have welcomed her into their fold. The next time we're moving, I'm insisting we move to a town with an active local quilt shop!
Besides getting ready for Thanksgiving, I'm also counting down to Christmas. I got my Countdown to Christmas quilt, headboard cover, pillows, and wall hanging out the first of November. I love this set so much I start counting down to Christmas early. Also, if I'm going to the trouble to change the fabric on that headboard, it's going to be out for longer than one month! This is my guest room.
Here's my Christmas in the City wall hanging.
When I'm in my sewing room, Cooper likes to hang out right next door in this room, he gets a great view of the goings on out on the street, he's always on guard for the UPS, USPS or Fed Ex men. I know I have a package getting ready to hit the doorstep before it's even out of the truck.
Well since this is a white quilt, and since it is out for a couple of months, I thought I would put an old blanket over Countdown to Christmas for Cooper to lay on when I'm sewing. As you can see, Cooper was having none of that, he must be excited to have this quilt back out too, to push that old comforter out of the way. (the bedroom set, including that great headboard where you can swap out the fabric is from Pottery Barn)
And finally, a starlight update. Thank you all so much for all the great and supportive comments regarding my little problem with starlight, by Camille Roskelley for thimble blossoms. Knowing you've had similar issues made me feel less foolish. And between your comments and the passage of time, I'm feeling better about the whole thing. I'm also taking your advice and working on the un-sewing a little bit everyday. Once I have the blocks apart and trimmed I may even work on something else, then put those starlight blocks back together, a little break would be good for my soul I think. Two comments really stand out, Vicky's comment was, "a quilt so nice you'll make it twice! That's my new mantra, I think because it's fun and true! And Ann said, "Sometimes quilting is a humbling experience", and she is right, this was a humbling experience, but I'm better for it. So really, thanks so much for feeling my pain. And like I said, I have a fix for this. If you want to feel some real pain go visit Nicole's blog, she just finished her Clover Schnibbles table topper only to spill hot wax on it, I'm not sure there's a fix for that, but I sure hope so, I feel your pain Nicole!
