For some very light relief yesterday we went to see Fool's Gold. The oldest youngest sweetie was 12 yesterday. Matthew Mc spends a lot of time making sure he looks great - very nice for us - and some of the sea scenery was gorgeous. It was so bad it was good. The younger sweeties thought that it was great and the oldest sweetie thought that he had seen better many times.
So just a bit of eye candy.
As it is a long weekend here - Labour Day - I'm just cruising and having a general cleanup, so I thought that I would show a quilt that went outside of my comfort zone. It was made for a Machine Quilting challenge. The pattern was supplied and the colour had to be red and white. I don't do white real well and combined with red, too stark, too primal and the quilt ended up being too small. However there you go. I called it 'I'll give you a daisy a day dear' as I finished quilting it on Jed Strunk's birthday, who unfortunately died, in 1981, due to an aeroplane crash(why doesn't that surprise me) at the age of 45. I really like the song.
I found the daisy fabric on sale in the dress fabric section and it is a tightly woven poplin. It was even on special. Two years ago I gave to my good friend Sharon W as she had commented on the quilt and loved the starkness. It has gone to a good home.
The daisies are freehanded and the butterfly is a Janice Heitbaum.
I experimented with no Stitch in the Ditch. Probably a quilt this size is ok without.
