Back home from the quilt retreat just a bit disillusioned with my accomplishments. I had a list of things I wanted to do: finish my Sunbonnet Sue for the raffle, finish my mystery quilt, make a Linus quilt top, and work on Farmer's wife. It seemed reasonable, but I overestimated my ability to work quickly. Too much food, too much talking, too much Bingo ( buy Hey!, I won!), too many seams to rip out. Sigh.
I'm not disillusioned with this quilt top, however. This is the moment I've been waiting for since February! Just a few weeks ago, I worried over my choice of fabrics since they were far from the darker Civil War fabrics most everyone else used. Mine are cheery 30's prints, and are quite busy. Would the pattern emerge? This quilt has been a ton of work, and I feared the worst. I needn't have feared. It's perfect! The colors, not the seams. ahem. ;-) Now to add the borders!
