Right here, on Sunday July 30, Debra Spincic and I will be stitching at the same time, the same quilt top, 700 miles apart. It's called the 1,000 Pyramids Quilt and Debra has a tutorial on her blog. It's pretty easy to do once you get your brain going in the right direction (triangles have the same effect on me as ocean travel: Disorientation). Who will finish first? The drama!
So tune in either here on the blog or Facebook where we will be chronicling our progress and each of us will attempt to finish one quilt top in a matter of hours.
All in fun, of course!
See? I'm smiling.
And while you're at it, visit my Etsy Shop and look at the cozy reclaimed, upcycled, or recycled - whichever term suits you - tshirt quilts that are now on sale with free shipping. These are made from lovely, soft tshirts and quilted onto soft, durable fleece. These things are really snuggly and are great for college students and small kids - no worries as they wash and dry just like a ...well, tshirt. Remember how comfortable those things are? Think about an entire quilt made from well worn, easy to care for t-shirts.
I'm off to check in on the patient who just had all four wisdom teeth extracted. She's sleeping off the anesthesia right now but was begging for a Chik Fila milk shake on the way home. She's on total Facebook/texting restrictions for 24 hours.
