I don’t know how much thread I’ve used to make this En Provence quilt so far, but I’m sure it’s twice as much as was required because I’ve taken out half of it. Wow is it ever easy to flip some of those blocks around.
This picture is taken at a slight angle because the light in the room is hanging in the way. As you can see from my expert photo editing skills, I spent approximately 10 seconds whiting out the Splendid Sampler blocks behind the open space so that they weren’t distracting. Because that white isn’t distracting *at all*!
Anyway, the finished quilt will be 5 magenta stars across and down (25 total) and 4 large purple/blue circular blocks across and down (16 total). I have 11 of the 16 done and the associated stars with it so more than halfway. I have been absolutely swamped at work this week and haven’t had a lot of time to work on it – mostly at 6am or 6pm.
In the meantime, I was straightening up my fabric in the china cabinet between trips to the iron. I didn’t notice our cat jumped in there at some point. In fact, she jumped into the 3rd row apparently. I closed it and didn’t happen to see I had a visitor.
I let her sit in there a minute or two longer until I got a picture of her – haha! The glass isn’t really smeared; it was just the reflection. That cabinet is over 100 years old with the original glass in it. My great-grandfather made it and my great-grandmother passed it directly to me, bypassing my grandmother and mom who already had their own anyway. It makes me happy whenever I see it, but today it made me laugh!
