Plaid Flowers was made a few of years ago. It was machine-pieced and hand-quilted, probably hand-quilted in the car between piano, dance or karate lessons. When I went back to work full time I thought I'd never quilt again. Going back to work was the right choice for my family, but tough on free time. This piece reminds me- when there's a will, there's a way. I wanted to quilt but recognized I'd never complete a large piece. This quilt teaches me that with compromise you have have the best of both worlds. Life got easier. I got a handle on the job, the kids learned to drive, and in turn got time to quilt.
I'm bumbed that I didn't get every thing I wanted to get done this week accomplished, but the weekend is almost here.
Enjoy your weekend - where ever you are.
