|This pasture is on the farm where we get our milk, |
and the hardly recognizable steeple in the back is the city's
central Catholic Church.
And the rest of the garden needs a lot of work, too...!
By now we're back to rain - a thunderstorm in fact, and the weather forecast for tomorrow is not good at all. My son is supposed to be a ball boy for the local men's tennis team, and I am counting on the time he is going to be away to continue working on a quilting commission. But perhaps he won't be away for long, if at all...
So far, all quilts I have quilted on the longarm for other people have been such that I could easily have chosen similar fabrics. Now, for the first time, I had a quilt mounted which was made from fabrics that I would never have chosen myself. Which was a very interesting experience. Unfortunately the maker had a clear request what kind of quilting she wanted done, and I did not get a chance to go through the process of developing a quilt design for a quilt in fabrics that would never be my choice. In a way it saved me the time I would have spent thinking about what to do with the patterns on the fabric, and how I could transform them into fitting quilting patterns, and as she only wanted a few straight lines to set off the squares, it was a job very quickly and easily done, and I am expecting to get the second quilt in this commission done as easily as the first. But I really would have liked to face the challenge to deal with the fabrics patterns 'on my own'.

just the right swirl for quilting around the roses!
