I usually stop quilting for the summer around the Fourth of July. This year I’m continuing to work on the Little Boy’s quilt. I like these golden stars with the appliquéd sports motifs.


I’ve been having a devil of a time marketing them, though. The marking pencil I started with breaks every time it gets near either a pencil sharpener or the stencil. I switched to a disappearing marker, and it of course disappears within a day or two, so I can only mark what I know I’ll complete that day. This interferes with proper planning.

Today #2 daughter is coming in for a visit and #1 son and his crew will join us for a DNC watch party. That might be an event that calls for knitting rather than quilting.
