I have decided to name my version of Evelyn Sloppy’s Plaid Obsession quilt “What the Heck.” I did the final piecing on it during a very stressful time, and did not put much energy into trying to achieve perfection. Rather, it was a means of calming myself down. Fortunately, like most string quilts, this is a very forgiving design. While at the ranch I found some old plaid sheets that had never been taken out of their package. They are too small for today's thick matresses and I am considering using them to make shams to go with this quilt. I have yet to find a satisfactory way to photograph large quilts. This one looks a little odd because you can see part of a glass-topped coffee table at the bottom.
This little quilt is also finished and on its way to Debbie at Stitchin' Therapy. It should arrive sometime between today and Tuesday.
I have pulled my Wisconsin Stars quilt out of my collection. It will be a gift for my Uncle Robert. We will celebrate his 87th birthday today.
