This quilt was pieced as part of a round robin exchange with 3 of my quilty friends, many moons ago. It was originally intended for my dining room, but I think now it will go better in my living room.
Yesterday, I pin basted the layers. Then I started quilting. I did all of the straight line quilting/stitch in the ditch stuff that I could do with the walking foot. I want to do some freemotion quilting in the center square and around those sun ray sort of shapes, and also in the outer border. I am not sure I have time at home this month to finish all of that. But I do not want to rush just to finish.
The reason I can't finish is because I am taking a trip to Florida! My host told me "bring a bathing suit", so I have spent some time working on getting one together. First, I made the Tidal Wave swim shorts from 5 out of 4 Patterns. I planned to make a top from another of the 5oo4 pattern site, but my supply order did not come in time. I plan to sew a separate bra out of swim foam into the new top for support. SInce my order did not arrive, I have neither the time nor the materials to include the appropriate support into the new top. So I cut the top out of an old tankini that does not fit, and added a new skirt to it.
