But with this one quilt which I am currently working on I wonder who did not look out for what she was doing! Either I wasn't paying any attention at all, or it has been much too long since I had worked a quilt in this technique.
It is far too hot to go anywhere on outings, or sailing. Plus my son has a severely wounded knee which, if you listen to his groans and complaints, almost required amputation of his entire left leg, and therefore he could not go anywhere (except that after my husband had left the house because he really needed to get out he then started digging a hole in the garden because he wants to start a goldfish-pond). So I packed him off to a friend in the afternoon to help him get over the vacation cabin fever and had an afternoon to myself, and my quilt.

It looks even worse than it is, because the piecing itself doesn't take that long. What does take long is figuring out exactly how the pieces should go together, where are the matching points (which I was really good about marking, believe me!)... But it's coming along nicely so far, and the outer areas will be machineable, eventually. I am looking forward to getting into the phase when the text can be stitched onto the top. But that won't be tomorrow yet...
