Design wall Monday Oct 3
Judy's Patchwork Times I do have pictures of the almost finished Batman quilt. All it needs now is to be bound, which is this afternoon's job, and then run through the washer and dryer. I've used a thicker batt than I usually do, because it was a request that the quilt be "thick and soft", just the way my son likes them. I designed an overall meander pantograph just for this quilt, using the fight words from the Batman series of the 60's and also from the comic books. The words show up quite nicely on the solid colour sections of the quilt using a Rainbows variegated black to white thread. I think Noel is going to like this, a lot. It was a lot of fun to do. After I get this done, I think I'm going to play with crumb blocks. I don't think I'll be able to get many more done for the next 3 weeks, due to the coming cataract surgery on Wednesday on the right eye, and then the left eye on the 19th. I am looking forward to being able to see again, without the shadows and ghosts around everything. That is the thought I am trying to hold onto, when I start to think of the scary thought of someone coming at my eyes with a laser, or whatever it is that they use. But, I know both in my head and in my heart that God is in control, and I will trust Him to guide the surgeons hands.
