I have been diligently working on finishing some of those works in progress. I started quilting the Radio Flyer quilt. I had terrible trouble yesterday. Messed this one up pretty good. I don't know if it was the wrong kind of thread or a tension problem, but I couldn't get it right to save my life. I did enough though in my attempts to get it right that I have lots of ripping out to do. I got so tired of my seam ripper that I played around with this for a couple of hours last night. I am toying with the idea of joining a mini quilt swap in June. These folks are swapping 6 to 12" quilts with partners. I've never made anything that small and I thought it might be fun. I found this fun, retro radio fabric in the bargain bin awhile ago, not knowing what I might do with it. Last night around midnight I made this. It's about 5 x 7 inches right now. I'm calling it "Music is Life." It's not finished, but it rejuventated my spirit enough to face going back to ripping out the wacky machine quilting from yesterday.(Actually I like it so much I could see a whole big quilt full of these! I need to control myself!) No more new projects...back to the WIP's! I promise!!!
