I just finished this cute quilt for Mary - she is teaching it as a BOM at Charlotte's Sew Natural in Newton. The pattern is Joy of Life by Australian designer Rosalie Quinlan.
It took me a while to figure out what to do with it - the background is sort of randomly organized and that made it tricky for me but I do like the way it turned out. Thanks Mary, for using wool batting - my favorite for making the quilting really stand out!
On our way into Newton the other day, Peter and I waited for a train loaded with wind turbine blades - well over 50 of them. They are probably each about 60 feet long; that was a slow moving train. If it's one thing we have plenty of in Kansas - it's wind! (and grasshoppers, and sunflowers, and quilters, and...)
