As of late, I have been racking my brain in an attempt to figure out why it is that I seem to continuously be rushing here and there and everywhere. Even staying up till 2 in the morning does not give me the time I require to do the things I want to do. Yes, I am exhausted!
I am also starting to sound like a broken record with "It's been so busy" and "Just playing catch up here". At last, it has occurred to me this very morning, while writing my standard broken record phrases on blog land, to do a bit of math regarding where I spend my time. Well....... I found the culprit!
The ICE RINK!
Yes indeed, I spend on the average 12 hours a week at an ice rink, give or take a couple of hours. All for the love of my daughter. Oh.. and I do love her dearly!
Now that I know the culprit, will I do something about it? Not a chance, but it does make me feel better to know that I am not inappropriately managing my time. Do you think the rink manager would let me set up a sewing area? It would be a tad cold thought! Br.....
Here is the other antique quilt from Barbara Stadnicki's collection that I promised you.
The block pattern is a variation of courthouse steps, however Barbara said that is is also called Chinese Lanterns. Can you see the lanterns?
It's construction is quite particular as it does not have batting in between the layers. The maker merely finished the quilt by sewing on a binding.
Look at that tiny binding. It is not more than a quarter inch.
A block showing the various fabrics used.
Just so you get to see a variety of fabrics, and we quilters do like fabric! ;o)
Thank you again Barbara for allowing me to share your treasures.
I hope you have enjoyed this little treat. Thank you for stopping by my little corner in cyber space! Cheers!
