I've been very 'quiet' this week.......and I'm thinking you know why. All of us are in our homes across the globe shopping, wrapping, baking and decorating. In between all of the preparation, I would spend a few minutes a day at my quilting machine and finished the Yo-Yo quilt designed by Kim Diehl.
Before it goes on display at the shop, I thought I would enjoy looking at it for a few days, and put it on S&B Luckett's Improved Cloth Measurer. This is one of our antique treasures that we found in an antique store in North Carolina on one of our cross-country
junking I mean searching for antiques junkets. The fabric would be rolled onto the roller, turn the handle and it would dispense a yard at a time. Here's a view of the side.
Since I work in a quilt shop, am I the New Improved Cloth Measurer? Just a thought. I can dispense yards at a time....I can also dispense fat quarters! I'll bet S&B Luckett's Improved Cloth Measurer can't do that! Can you imagine having only one or two choices for fabrics. I used over 400 different fabrics in this quilt!
I'm all for having choices. It's making the right choice that is key to all decisions in life and quilting.
So here's to happy and varied choices on how you plan to spend your day. My day will include a trip to the grocery store for all of the last minute items for our Christmas feast. I have a bit of wrapping to finish and yes, I'll be quilting too with Christmas music in the background......I never get tired of Christmas music.
