The thought occurred to me a few nights ago that next year I will have 2 kids. Which means that I have to sew as much as possible this year since next year I will be twice as busy. At least that’s the conclusion I came to at 3:30 in the morning when my son climbed in bed with us and I couldn’t fall back asleep. Thus….the Halloween quilt.
Orange and black stripes, meant to be good and wonky like Denyse Schmidt’s Hop, Skip & Jump Quilt. Wonky is hard for me, it took some playing to figure out how to make wonky strips that still ironed flat, but once that was figured out it went together really quickly. I like the wonkiness now that its all together, it makes it very Halloween-ish.
Now it’s time for my favorite fall snack….I’m not going to tell you how much of this I’ve had, but I will tell you I’ve had more apples to eat in the past week than I’ve had in the past year. Its worth every calorie.
