You know you are sick...

5.18.2014

...when you are too sick to sew!! That would be me. Thursday night I got hit with something that knocked me off my feet for the last several days. To top it off, I got a raging migraine last night. I am praying that I don't get a rebound migraine tonight. I am so thankful that I got sick after vacation and not during!!

Before the nasties came to visit, I was on a roll with the Aviatrix Medallion... The center of this quilt was way beyond my comfort zone and a very real challenge to get it put together. Lots of unsewing went on before I had it all figured out. 


After such a challenging start, I chose to do the next two borders, since they were simple. Border 3 is more challenging. Not hard, just lots of pieces, so I am saving it for last. 


These blocks are border 5. I really love the simplicity of them! I would love to make quilt using these two blocks someday. =)



Just before I got sick, I was working on border 6, the butterfly blocks. I do believe I feel well enough to turn on the machine and get back to work. At least for a little while. =)

Happy Sunday, everyone!!

  1. Glad you're feeling better. I was just thinking a day or two ago that you hadn't posted in a while, I thought maybe you were having a sewing marathon. Looking forward to seeing the medallion quilt finish, great colors!

    Well, I have not been around in a long time. I need to actually sub to your blog :-(
    So sorry you got slammed with a bug. I hope you start perking up right now and continue on that path!

  7. Oh So Beautiful. You can't even tell there was any un-sewing. If I have to un-sew at all it looks horrible.
