Sometimes it’s good to be a second choice….especially in the eyes of one of your children. My youngest Sam and one of his buds, take an annual trip to Colorado to see his favorite jam band Widespread Panic each summer. A last minute decision (Matt had to take a summer college course) left my son without his traveling buddy. Imagine my surprise when Sam asked me to go with him. Say what? I couldn’t pack fast enough. The only catch, he was going to all 3 shows and wanted me to attend at least one with him. Hmm, ok. I’d never been to a show at Red Rocks, so I was game.
Regardless, we had a really good time. Did some sight-seeing, a little shopping and some sewing! Yep, that’s right. The evenings Sam was at Red Rocks, I turned our hotel room into a quilt studio.
Oh yeah! This could work!
With only needing a couple of rows added, I took my 30’s Tennessee retreat quilt to complete. It’s only been a sitting UFO for a year – how sad is that? Just a few rows shy of being finished and I let it sit for so long. Once my hour glass quilt was finished I whipped together a few fussy stars.
A snugly utility quilt for the Grands when they visit.
Why I’ve started a second size of fussy stars, I’ll never know. But I did. Original size in the center, smaller stars were the brain fart. Again, the altitude may have been messing with my mind.
They’re darn cute, so I’ll crank out a few more until I figure out what to do with them.
