Quilting content!

I certainly hope that the remainder of 2007 goes better than the first three weeks. Friday night I had an accident on the way home from work and smashed the heck out of my pretty red van. I had a bit of muscle soreness in my back but that is all as far as my injuries. I don't know the extent of the damages to the van yet... the insurance company got a rental car for me right away but I don't have an appraisal yet. I sure hope it isn't totalled!

On a brighter note, I chose the fabrics for the quilt for our master bedroom.

I'm going to be doing a really simple "pattern" that came from a post in December 2005 on Lisa Call's blog New Works and Inspiration (scroll down). I wanted lots of color without spending huge amounts of time working with an intricate pattern. I'm still a beginning quilter so I work pretty slowly, and I have quite a few sane quilts lined up to do this year... and I want to do some crazy quilting, too!

Glenn had to work graveyard shifts over the weekend so I spent about 6 hours on Sunday in my little workroom and got most of the pieces cut out. I only cut one group of 8 or so squares the wrong size; however, the beauty of this pattern is that you can substitute a pieced square for a solid square and no one will know the difference!

I haven't done any more on my Take a Stitch Tuesdays sampler, unfortunately. I hope to catch up this weekend 'cause I need some stitching time!
