aka......quilting your butt off when you loose your job!
Here are a few more quilts that I've got finished. Here is Norma's Liberated Stars. I taught Norma how to make these stars last summer when we all got together in The Dalles, OR for a few days of quilting and visiting. She took the 30 minute lesson and really ran with it.
Here is a great quilt Muriel made with jelly rolls, this pattern was on the cover of AP& Q a few years ago. It calls for a 60 degree ruler, but it's easy to make with your regular 6 x 12 ruler.
It is fun to make, the piecing is a lot of what I call 'production work' and the fun comes when you start putting it up on the design wall. The piecing is the same as a One Block Wonder.
When I think about the time off I've enjoyed, I sometimes think the time has just rolled by. I do know it's been a lesson in retirement and I'm going to have to plan or at a minimum, have a bit of a schedule. The days can just slide into the next and all of a sudden, the week is winding down. In retirement, I'll have to make sure I have set tee times on the local golf course so I can remember what day of the week it is.
