The five things on my desk don't matter much this week.
They're awesome but not nearly as awesome as a finished Farmer's Wife top.
My baby is done and I don't think I could possibly be happier.
All the weeks. All the tiny triangles. All absolutely worth it.
I knew the traditional layout wasn't right for me and after some wonderful advice from a friend I staggered some strips of Michael Miller's Clown Stripe in between each block.
I love the movement the stripes give this quilt. And the breaks from all that color.
This layout meant that I needed an even number of blocks so I put together this quick little star and added it in.
Which worked out perfectly because those pumpkins were a purchase from my birthday trip to Nashville and I'm really excited that they got to work their way into my quilt.
112 blocks. Set into 14 rows of 8.
Long enough that I can completely hide under it. Or run around the house with a fabulous cape.
I've gotta part with my baby for a little while. She's off to the longarmer to get a bit of pumpkin treatment.
Binding is proving tricky for me at the moment. I can't decide what I want. So I think that the time away will give me a chance to really think about it. Then I can look at it with fresh eyes when it gets back home.
...I haven't even gone to the post office and I miss it already.
