After the Quilt Show
The quilt show wore me out, working for the deadline really stressed me. I worked up to the last second adding items and details to my art quilt for the "Fyber Cafe" display. It turned out beautiful, tho I still wanted to add more stuff. So after the show I relaxed, cleaned my sewing room, it looked like a tornado hit it, all the bits and pieces everywhere. I sewed some very basic pieceing, for children's charity quilts. I call it zombie piecing, just feeding the pieces through the machine, one after the other, on and on. It can be very relaxing, mind numbing, but I feel like I am accomplishing something. I don't have to worry about matching corners, precision, or even colors too much. I made 75 blocks in a week and a half. The quilt guild is making some quilts for "Camp Millennium" the children's cancer camp, and we didn't have much time to finish them.
