Pieceful Monday

I’m so thankful for a quiet, pieceful Monday. Last week was busy, to say the least. This is how we spent our Sunday afternoon. Even Max the cat was happy to nap, as cats always are!

Feeling somewhat rejuvenated today, I’m planning to get the Mt. Hood blocks sewn together. I have to admit, I am just not that excited about this quilt. I’m not sure why, other than I think I chose a pattern which just doesn’t challenge me enough. I chose this particular pattern for a class, because I wanted to have something easy. I hadn’t taken a class for some time, and I was feeling a little intimidated.

Since I don’t have a design wall large enough, I had to lay them out on the floor. I grabbed my camera to photograph them, only to find my camera battery was dead. The camera was left on from the last time we used it; no juice whatsoever. So these are taken with my phone because I need to get this post done, y’know?

After my quilt block layout morning aerobics, here’s the final layout.

When you are short and trying to take an overhead shot without a ladder. Fuzzy, with toes.

And here they are, all messily stacked and ready to be sewn together. Note my classy method of noting on my stacks. Hey, it works for me!

I’m very tempted to just do a plain border on this and be done with it. The pattern calls for a narrow solid border, then an hourglass border, finished with a wider solid border. It would definitely add some pizzazz to the quilt, so I’ll make my decision once these blocks are put together!

  1. I fight the- I want it done- too, but so far I have not been disappointed if I trudge along on the original plan 🙂

  2. I’m glad you are feeling rested and rejuvenated. Seems like I change my mind many times during the quilt assembly process; I’m sure you’ll finish this top in a way that makes you happy! Thanks for linking up to Main Crush Monday!
