I haven't gotten much sewing in this week. Procrastinating mostly...
Today I got up planning to sew, but first had to do a bit of sewing room transformation.
This was my sewing area (minus the chair):
I'm using an old kitchen table and chairs. That piece folded down in the front will flip up and make the table bigger, but my space is small, so it works better down. But it doesn't give you much room for your legs under the table.
First step: remove the fold-down piece on one side.
Step two: new chair (I was going to get a cushion to make me sit higher, but decided to just get a new chair instead).
The final result?
Not a huge change, but a change. I did find one chair that was similar and pink and really liked it, but it didn't adjust up nearly as high and I'm very happy I chose this one - it's as high as it goes and I could even go another couple of inches if I wanted to!
So then, while the kitties enjoyed the empty box, I layed out my 30's blocks in preparation for finishing the top.
A photo without a cat in it? Yep - they're in the box!
(My design floor isn't quite big enough - a few blocks got tucked under the edge of the ottoman!)
I sewed and sewed and took a few breaks because the hubby was home and to try to help keep my back happy. After a few hours, I have this!
I really like it and I think the pieced border worked. If you look closely, you'll see fabrics in the border not found elsewhere in the quilt, but I was using up scraps (and running out of scraps)! A very 30's attitude, so fitting.
It finished about 62x82

Now I can stop procrastinating my February UFO work and the owl quilt!
