The new sewing machine has inspired lots of quilting and related projects. On July 4 I finished a baby blanket with Jetsons-style trees. It gave me a chance to try out more stitches for sewing the layers together and attaching the binding.
The bright squares on the gray background are going to be another city quilt, but I think I'll add some fabric paint to this one.
Last night we watched "Another Year" and I began applying beads to my first "art" quilt. The beading isn't as tedious as I anticipated; it should only take another 3 or 4 sessions to finish. The movie began slow but got better but in a lot of ways it is too realistic to be entertaining.
