Put Me In Coach


I went back to work Monday (last day of the pay period)…for 2¾  hours….REALLY?  The last day I worked was May 1st.  I have been off for 2 months and my first day back I get put on the schedule for how long?!?  
At first I thought  ‘Will I be able to handle working that long?’, then I thought ‘What did I do before I left to tick off the bosses?’…

Not too much has happened this week.  I am still working on my RBRs.

I did go to the Muncy Historical Society’s quilt show yesterday. I hope you enjoy the little bit of the show.
 
This quilt was a full size quilt and totally hand embroidered with all the tree leaves in our area. In the late 1800's into the early 1900's Williamsport was the 'Lumber Capital of the World'.
 


I liked the way they displayed this:


 
 
 
 
The quilter quilted an owl, sun, moon and a flower in this medallion and found it a very interesting quilting choice.
.

On this description it states her husband made a quilt frame suspended from the ceiling.

 
 
I am working on a doubled wedding ring quilt and am collecting quilting ideas.
If you have any please send them my way.

 

This tip is one I love and began to use after I made this patriotic flag quilt:

 
Notice the white looking piece of fabric in the middle of the border? I would never have used it, it is the first place my eye goes to every time I look at it.
 
Now I take a picture of the layout first and make sure it is the way I want to sew the quilt together. Also, instead of trying to remember how to sew it together you can see how to sew it together.
 
When I saw this quilt at the Muncy show yesterday I noticed one block that looked as if it was 'floating'.
 
 

Maybe it was the intent of the quilter, maybe not...
 
Have a great week.
