First, I apologize for the craptastic pictures. I thought I would be able to take some lovely outdoor shots with natural light. However, in listening to the weather report my auditory system shut down after hearing temperatures in the 60's and didn't realize they also forecast rain. Ugh!
So, here is Somewhere over the Rainbow there are String Beans!
The block pattern is String Beans by Stephanie of Loft Creations. Great pattern. Easy to assemble. The setting is my variation. You can click on the pictures and make them bigger to see all the dottiness.
Cass (my long arm quilter) used a new to me pattern in the quilting. It reminds me of clouds or the way the goo moves in a lava lamp (yes I do have issues). It is spaced farther apart them some of the other designs she has used. I'm on the fence about this one. I like the movement of the design but it made the quilt puffier than I had hoped. Oh well - it will be fine. I have no illusions that I am making heirloom quilts. I am making quilts that make me, and hopefully others happy.
I wanted to get a picture of the backing I used for this quilt. It is big dots that are dotted - dotty dots! As I went to take the picture Big Dude came to investigate.
He is currently curled up inside the quilt taking a nap. What a smart cat! Between the stupid time change and the rain, a nap would be the perfect use of my time today. However, life has other plans for me. I need to find my car keys. Tomorrow is suppose to be a better day weather-wise. I'm looking forward to it.
