Doing what I have to do: About a year ago I made a nice tshirt quilt for my husband's boss. I gathered tshirts he had won in sport tournaments and since he is a Ford dealer, I also included fabrics I had collected that related to Fords. It came out really nice. But it was lots of work.
So then the son of my husband's boss asks me to make him one, but he wants it done in golf towels that he's collected throught the years. Great idea! (I thought!) Not fun piecing towels...especially thick velour ones! I just finished the piecing and am putting the backing together. There is lint everywhere! Poor "Poopie" doesn't like it. But she sure makes the quilt look cute!
Doing what I want to do: I just finished a customer's Carpenter's Star quilt. Loved it. Enjoyed it soooooo much. Much more fun than piecing towels!
