Full steam ahead....
Here's a sneak peak on one of them. The quilt itself is a collection of pastel dotted fabrics, in a turning twenty variation. But the quilting inspiration came from the border fabric. I had this owl design originally for a border treatment. I enlarged it, and laid it out as a pantograph. So very cute.
And I've gotten a lot more done on Nate's quilt, as well.
The blocks are all done, and it is now in the process of being sewn together. Two rows are done, with 3 more to go.
And in other news, the construction, or maybe I should say deconstruction, for our new apartment has begun.
This lovely clean area of the basement has turned into this.
My head knows that it will all be wonderful when it is done, but hokey smokes, it is really hard to picture it at this point. And poor Matt, who works permanent nights, has been having to come over to our place, in order to get any sleep at all. Between large drills going in order to drill holes for new wiring, and jack hammers going on order to put in new plumbing, there was no way he would get any sleep over there at all.
The good news is that, from what we've seen and heard so far, the contractors and the people they use are really good. The supplies we've seen coming in a high quality. The people are friendly, and willing to answer all the questions we have had. It is going to be interesting to look back at all this in a couple of months and marvel at how a lovely living space emerged from so much mess.
