Are you getting tired of this one yet? I keep posting WIP photos, but really it hasn't changed that much. How much different does a Flickr picture of a quilt top fully seamed together look from the blocks laid out on my floor? At any rate, here it is—I actually finished it a few days ago. Just have to piece the leftovers together for the backing (I'm imposing a fabric embargo until the move) and it's off to the Mother for quilting. Though I'm tempted to start fiddling about with simple free-motion quilting on my own machine, but I'd need to practice first. I anticipate frustration.
Late mention, but Chonk and I went to the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn last weekend, which was great fun until it started pouring. Browsing was great, but I actually only bought a few things, all in the picture above. The Other has a thing for pugs, so Marty—the name of the screen-printed canvas according to Pillow Pillow Pillow—will become a pillow for him (finished pillow at the fair: $50. Print on raw fabric: $10. Score!). The patches by Fishcakes, also chunks of screen-printed canvas, will probably find their way into some appliqué project eventually; cookie binges and grumpiness are both things the Other has been teasing me about recently.
Finally, they asked on Craftster to see some blocks from my Card Catalog quilt up close, so I thought I'd post them here too (I'm particularly liking the thread I neglected to clip in the top photo, as well as the not-quite-matched corners). As I recall, I had to fudge some of the bibliographic details; the records at the British Library were more complete than those at the Library of Congress. Well, that's probably more indicative of the data supplied by publishers than the relative merits of our national copyright libraries. Anyway, before I wax bibliographic for much longer than any of you care to read, I bid farewell.
